    Nah. I think some people wish he had those issues. He's a 200-foot player.

    Hoping he's there for NJ at pick #41....could use some talent in our forward prospect pool and in 3-4 years, some of our vets will be gone (Elias, Zubrus, etc.)

    he has looked really really good in the USHL from what I have seen with Omaha. So smart with and away from the puck.

    6 points in 2 games so far in his USHL debut. this kid does have a future ahead but it will just take some time until he gets there.

    Figured I’d bump the thread as he is currently 2nd in PPG in NCAA, at Harvard with 12 goals and 20 points in 12 games. Has to be on a short list for hobey Baker this year despite currently ranking 39th in points. Largely due to Harvard (and all of the Ivy League) playing a light schedule so far.

    Although his potential Olympic bid may screw up some hobey dreams if he misses some time at Harvard due to it. Likely a trade off he’ll accept

    He'll definitely be in consideration. Besides the light schedule, the other problem Ivy League schools play is that they play other Ivy League schools which is arguably the weakest conference and it's easier to rack up points. I'm not trying to take anything away from Donato as I think he's a legitimate NHL prospect, but it's something to consider.

    He's on the Jimmy Vesey plan at Harvard:

    Jimmy Vesey
    Age 19: 27 games, 11 goals, 7 assists, 18 points
    Age 20: 31 games 13 goals, 9 assists, 22 points
    Age 21: 37 games, 32 goals, 26 assists, 58 points
    Age 22: 33 games, 24 goals, 22 assists, 46 points

    Ryan Donato
    Age 19: 32 games, 13 goals, 8 assists, 21 points
    Age 20: 36 games, 21 goals, 19 assists, 40 points
    Age 21: 12 games, 12 goals, 8 assists, 20 points

    I heard an interview where Pierre Mcguire hinted that Ryan Donato might be Boston's best young forward. I'm assuming Pierre momentarily forgot about David Pastrnak, but still...

    Donato carrying Harvard on his back now with 16-8-24 in 16 games. The next highest point scorer on his team has 14 points, the 2nd highest goal scorer has 5 goals.

    Not getting a ton of attention, despite having 20 goals and 10 assists in 19 games for Harvard so far. He'll be a prospect to watch during the Olympics.
