Scouting Notes:

As we start to look into the later rounds of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, we come upon Colby Ambrosio. Ambrosio spent the last two seasons with the Tri-City Storm of the USHL and has committed to Boston College for for the 2020-21 season. The 17-year-old forward put up 26 goals and 24 assists for 50 points scored in 48 games. His scoring touch isn’t the only thing that stands out in his game as he has the ability to draw penalties like crazy.

Ambrosio is currently listed as a center, but saw a lot of time last season on the wing. Despite playing on the wing, you can see some of those tendencies of a center in Ambrosio. I expect to see him go in the third round, however, I also expect him to spend at least a year or two playing at the NCAA level.
