A young, dangerous player, right shooting Owen Griffin is already showing how he is ahead of his draft class. Despite playing for Markham’s U16 team, Griffin is actually playing an age group up, being a 2023 OHL draft eligible player. Despite being smaller than most of his peers, Griffin is still in the midst of growing and does some lifting in an effort to bulk up. Coming into this season, Griffin shows how he is similar to his comparable, Steven Stamkos, being able to see the ice very well while playing at high speeds. Griffin is described as being a very smart player on the ice, with the ability to slow the game down around him. Griffin prides himself on his speed as well, which allows him to tear off down the ice, breaking through the opposing team with ease. Being an ‘07, Griffin would be expected to be behind the rest of the league, but this is simply not the case as he is more than capable of playing above his age level without any real issues. As he comes into this season, his biggest goal is to improve his strength further, while bulking up and putting on some more size, further leveling whatever playing field there was. Being able to play against an older level of player will help to benefit Griffin as he comes into the draft, as obviously most players will be a year or more older than him. Providing Griffin keeps up his hard work over the next two seasons, especially while playing up a level, he could make a very good argument to go higher in the 2023 OHL draft.
