Cameranesi is a 5’9″, 160 lbs center from Minnesota High School. This is what www.mnhockeyprospects.com had to say about the player:

“The future UMD Bulldog is very attentive on the ice and has exceptional puck control. His first stride acceleration and on-ice anticipation allows him to find open ice and create scoring opportunities. Cameranesi is a hard worker on the ice, keeping his feet moving at all times. Scoring seems to come naturally for Cameranesi, possessing a killer instinct around the net. Likes to use his wrist shot and does a good job keeping the puck low.

Size is obviously an issue, although he uses his body well protecting the puck and is not intimidated of bigger players.”

Here is a small highlight pack which shows what he brings in terms of skill, skating and his ability with the puck.

David Broll is a 6″1′, 225 lbs man child LW who loves to fight. His assesment according to the www.thescoutingreport.org:

“Broll was Erie’s first round pick back in 2009 and put together a very productive freshman campaign with the Otters. He saw some quality minutes and was a part of Ontario’s entry at the Under 17 Challenge, where he had two assists in a predominantly depth role. Broll is a massive player on the ice and many have labeled him as being a “man-child” due to his sheer presence on the ice. His physicality and ability to lay huge hits are two of the main elements to Broll’s game, but he also has some offensive upside. He’s a great guy to plant in front of the net on the powerplay and does a great job generating offense off the low cycle. His skating stride is long and awkward, which will hinder him at the draft, but he will definitely be selected and could go around the early third.”

One of his fights is here, plenty more can be found on youtube. He’s got Brian Burke written all over him.

Dennis Robertson was selected 173rd overall by the Leafs. The defenseman recently finished his first year with the Brown Bears of the NCAA Division I. Listed as 6’0, 195 lb Robertson lead all defenceman on his team in points (17) and 6 goals in 30 games played. Here is a good link with a short bio along with his views on the importance of education, plus his bio on the Brown Bears website.
