Observations:

April, 2017 - The stocky fourth-round-pick out of the United States Hockey League transitioned to the more competitive Hockey East league this year with the University of Vermont Catamount's. The freshman impressed, finishing the season second in team scoring with a balanced 12 goals and 15 assists - it earned him recognition in both the Hockey East All-Rookie team, as well as a nomination for the Hobey Baker Award for the top collegiate player.-Brayden Olafson

June 2016- Overager Ross Colton was given a second chance during day two of the 2016 NHL Draft. The Tampa Bay Lightning selected the ‘96 born center in the 4th round after he had gone undrafted in the previous draft. Colton’s stock really took off after the USHL Top Prospects Game. Colton has a very good shot that he sets up through great cycling in the offensive zone. Finished a great year with Cedar Rapids this past season and will be attending the University of Vermont next year.

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

 

Colton will need time to develop NHL skill while in Vermont. Needs to be able to strengthen his shot and playmaking skills.
