Observations:

Oct 2017 - Ang finished 2016-17 with 59 points in 67 games but was only 4 points off the team lead. That's telling. Ang looked much improved in development camp, using his speed and above-average stickhandling in tight to create chances. He has already been named OHL Player of the Week for Peterborough collecting seven points in three games. Fantasy wise, Ang could be a sneaky deep fantasy add. He is showing game breaking ability to have an impact at the pro level. He had a noticibly great camp before being sent to the OHL. Expect to see a bit of a jump in his PPG this year as he currently leads the team with 13 points in 10 games. - Joel Henderson

 

December 2016- Continues to show his strength on the puck, using his size to prevent defenders from knocking the puck away. One of noticeable parts of his game is his ability to back check hard on several occasions. He is currently second in team scoring with the Peterborough Petes at just under a point-per-game pace with 28 points in 29 games. Has strong hockey sense and ability to read plays.  Chris Crawford
 

November 2016 - Likes to create a net front presence when his team is in the offensive zone. He is extremely strong of the puck and is able to use is increase in size to protect the puck when getting past defenders. In the defensive zone, he is physical and isn't afraid to hit. Currently sees time on the penalty kill and on the second unit powerplay with the Peterborough Petes. On the powerplay he is either in the slot or on the point and is able to use his strong shot and release to create offensive opportunities. He is currently just shy of a point per game pace with 20 points in 21 games. Chris Crawford

June 2016 – Ang was drafted due to his blazing speed. He wasn't taken until the fourth round because he's slender and streaky. Mark Allan

May 2016 – Ang is possibly the best skater in his draft class. His strength and conditioning have improved significantly in his OHL sophomore season with the Petes and his offensive game has developed as his confidence grows. His elite skating ability is impressive as his explosive acceleration, powerful skating stride allow for breakaway speed and create separation from defenders. He is adept at speeding past defenders and cutting back in front of the goal. Ang is developing his skill game and is a better playmaker than goal scorer. He needs to develop his shot, improving the release and power as he defaults to his puck handling skills to try to deke. Undersized, Ang avoids the dirty areas and needs to continue to add strength to improve his ability to dig out pucks, win board battles and protect the puck. Peter Harling

Fantasy Outlook: C

Elite skating ability projects him to the NHL but needs significant development time.
