Brett MacLean is a power forward that uses his size to create scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates. He is not afraid of a little contact and battles hard while playing a high-energy game. MacLean’s impressive offensive numbers were due in part to his linemate John Tavares, an outstanding prospect not yet eligible to be drafted into the NHL, but MacLean still had a good enough season to be ranked 14th on Central Scouting’s list of North American skaters.

Areas of improvement for MacLean include his skating, as well as his mobility and stickhandling.

MacLean was ninth in the OHL and second on his team in scoring with 100 points (47G, 53A) in 2006-07; was one of 40 draft-eligible prospects selected to participate in the 2007 CHL Top Prospects Game; and was named to the OHL Eastern Conference All-Star Team in 2007.

The Flyers say…
“Brett MacLean is a good finisher, and has good size. His speed is okay, and he looks like he could be a goal-scorer.”
– Amateur Scout Dennis Patterson
