Coming off a successful 2014-15 season in which he scored 34 goals and 81 points in 68 games with the OHL's Owen Sound Attack, Kyle Platzer looks to make even greater strides heading into what is expected to be his first full professional campaign in 2015-16.
“It was a good step in the right direction and definitely encouraging going forward. Hopefully I’ll turn pro this season and just build off last season,” he said.
After his OHL season ended, he moved on to the AHL's Oklahoma City Barons where he contributed with two goals in four regular season games to end the season and suited up for three more contests in the postseason.
“It was awesome. You always wonder what it’s like up there and just want to show your best. It was good to pot a few and get some confidence up there. Leading into this summer, it was awesome for me.”
