Matthew Blake is a smart player with a defense-first mentality. He has a good first pass, a strong shot in the offensive zone, and stays in communication with his line. Blake is positionally sound and an effective defender in all situations, including 1 on 1 and 2 on 1 rushes. He makes smart decisions and remains calm and disciplined with the success of the team in mind. This speaks for his character as he puts his team first. Matthew shows passion for the game and always works his hardest. He is looking to improve on his physical play in corners by using his size. Matthew is willing to put in the work it takes and has the potential to make an impact in the OHL.
