NHL Central Scouting’s Chris Edwards
"Michael has shown good playmaking ability and he sees the ice well. He moves the puck well.”
Guelph Storm head coach Jason Brooks
"He brings an element to our team that we don't currently have. We have guys who play with an edge and we have guys that can create chances and score goals for us, but Latta is both at the same time and we needed that. That's what makes him such a special player, that edge he possesses. If he doesn't play with an edge, he's not as effective . . . He'll do whatever it takes for the team to win -- blocking shots, winning faceoffs, killing penalties. He'll do the dirty things. He'll battle two guys for the puck and come out with it. He's a battler, and with his skill level, it makes him a great player."
There's not much to say. We played like [garbage]. I think every guy in the room should be completely embarrassed about how they played tonight. Every single person. To start a road trip, one of the biggest road trips and have a division rival chasing you down and have a ton on the line, it's ridiculous how we played tonight.
