Wakiji profiles Wings prospect Ryan O’Reilly (the other one)

DetroitRedWings.com’s Dana Wakiji posted an article profiling 20-year-old Wings prospect Ryan O’Reilly, who will begin his college career with the Arizona State University Sun Devils sometime this fall. Red Wings director of player development Shawn Horcoff weighs in on O’Reilly’s outlook:

Quotable: “He’s committed to Arizona State University next year. I think he’s excited to leave junior and go do that. He’s a guy that’s a scorer. When Ryan’s playing his game, he’s putting the puck in the net and he’s using his size to get in on the forecheck and turn pucks over and be a good, physical presence, get to the hard areas, get to the front of the net. We’re excited to see. I think for him, it’s just another step in his development, going to ASU, going to a good program down there. We’re going to look forward to seeing what he can do in college.” — Shawn Horcoff, director of player development and assistant director of player personnel
