Observations:

December 2017 - The 21-year-old power winger has adjusted well in his first year of professional hockey. The undrafted free-agent signee has two goals and 10 points in 20 AHL games from a mostly bottom six role. MacEwen plays a hard-nosed game and could become a fourth line NHL player down the line if everything broke right. Cam Robinson

MacEwen is the true definition of a late bloomer. He played his rookie major junior season at the age of 19 and in his sophomore/overage season with the Gatineau Olympiques caught the attention of NHL teams and was signed by the Vancouver Canucks. MacEwen is a big body that makes an impact on the game and quickly stands out with his size, speed and ability to handle the puck. Producing over a point per game shows his offensive upside, his 83 penalty minutes show he is willing and able to play a physical game as well. MacEwen often plays the power play on the point as he has a heavy shot and has creative offensive vision and skill. He moves the puck quickly, uses his size and reach to protect the puck, finds open players well and gets up and down the ice quickly for a big man. His game should translate well to the pro level and he will need some more development time in the AHL for a year or two.  Peter Harling
