Ryan Merkley's Player Profile

Kevin Wickersham My NHL Trade Rumors - Aug. 12th: "An offensive blueliner who took significant strides in his defensive game with Guelph last year, his first in the OHL. Racked up impressive points totals with 12 goals and 43 assists in 62 games, adding 50 penalty minutes. Merkley’s a slick puck handler that’s adept at leading teammates with accurate passes and setting up high-percentage scoring opportunities."

Corey Pronman ESPN - June 25th: " He's a stunning talent, with top-end mobility, hands and, most particularly, hockey IQ. He can make difficult offensive plays with consistency. He isn't a finished product defensively, and could stand to take fewer risks, but that type of deficiency never stopped other elite talents from reaching the top level, and it could be improved with some fine-tuning."

Kevin Wickersham Dobber Prospects - July 14th: " Merkley’s a slick puck handler that’s adept at leading teammates with accurate passes and setting up high-percentage scoring opportunities. Not a huge defender at 5-11, 165-pounds, Merkley positions himself well and can skillfully slow attackers with his stick, but is developing in his own zone."
