Around halfway through the 2018-19 season, Adam Ruzicka was a ho-hum prospect, consistently producing but not overwhelmingly so. For a prospect two years removed from his draft, that was pretty disappointing.
A trade to Sudbury sparked Ruzicka, and he finished the season as one of the hottest players in the OHL. He was scoring at a near goal-per-game pace, becoming one of the most impactful trade deadline acquisitions.
Ruzicka’s entire OHL experience has had high highs and low lows. He can be a responsible centreman that is absolutely lethal in front of the net and creative in other parts of the offensive zone.
