17-year old Owen Guy took the CCHL by storm in his rookie season with the Kemptville 73’s and was named CCM Rookie of the Year for his efforts. His above average hockey sense and great skating ability combined make him extremely dangerous. His positioning and skating make him a target for teammates to feed the puck to at full speed, whether it be transitioning from the defensive zone on a rush or going to the scoring areas of the ice. He brings intelligence and great offensive upside to the table and is dominant on the power play. He needs to work on his play without the puck and continue to get stronger to put himself into a top 6 role when he reaches the next level.
The Mountain, Ontario native is a product of the Upper Canada Cyclones AAA program where he captained the club during his Minor Midget season in 2013-14. His 31 goals that year ranked 3rd overall in the OEMMHL.
In his first season of action, the 5-9, 175 center posted 15 goals and 32 points in 59 games, leading all ’98 born CCHL skaters. His point totals were also good enough for 8th overall in 73’s club scoring. He was named CCHL Rookie of the Month for January while being named an Honorable Mention in December and September. At seasons end his strong play had him named to the CCHL All-Rookie Team and earned him Rookie of the Year honors.
