Assets: The son of former NHL center Andrew Cassels has a similarly cerebral approach to the game, complete with a high hockey IQ and two-way acumen. Is a pretty good playmaking pivot. Flaws: Doesn't have ideal size for the NHL game, so he must continue to get stronger in order to better withstand the rigors of professional hockey. Isn't quite as offensive as his father. Career Potential: Two-way center with upside. Editorial supplied by 'The Sports Forecaster'
