ICECAPS SIGN ST. JOHN’S NATIVE O’BRIEN TO ATO

This is a very interesting signing and may be one to watch down the line. Zach O'Brien -- Right Wing Born Jun 29 1992 -- St. John's, NFLD Height 5.09 -- Weight 178 -- Shoots R He is clearly undersized, but his numbers from this season are very interesting. In his 2nd full season with the Acadie-Bathurst Titans (QMJHL) O'Brien finished with the following stat line: GP: 63 Goals: 50 Assists: 51 Points: 101 PIM: ZERO His 101 points were good for 2nd in QMJHL scoring and he had ZERO flipping penalty minutes. In his total of 136 QMJHL games (Including playoffs) O'Brien has a grand total of ZERO penalty minutes. Is this kid Kyle Wellwood 2.0? Maybe. Maybe not. It will be interesting to see how he performs in the AHL. As of yet he is just a one year wonder and he played on a very very strong line (his line mates were 3rd and 10th in QMJHL scoring), but I like the addition. It is a low risk, high reward move. Here is another interesting piece on O'Brien from thehockeywriters.com
