1. McTavish is a natural sniper and is one of the better catch-and-release shooters in the draft
2. He’s physically imposing, is very tough to knock off the puck, which aids him in battles along the boards and when carrying the play end-to-end
3.  Knows how to get open and bury scoring changes from around the net front

Area’s for Improvement

1. Needs to work on his offensive consistency
2. Doesn’t do enough to be considered a play driving player at this point in his career

Scouting Report:

Mason McTavish led all 2003-born OHL rookies in scoring and tied-first in points this season (bested only by the 2004-born Shane Wright). Mason McTavish is a big, strong shoot-first center with soft hands and a good feel for the puck on both the forehand and backhand. Playing on the Peterborough Petes, he normally sets up in the high slot on the powerplay; similar to TJ Oshie, McTavish uses his heavy, accurate shot to beat goaltenders. Although McTavish has a terrific shot, he doesn’t only camp out in the high slot; he will get in front of the goalie for tips, similar to TJ Oshie. Mason shows incredible offensive awareness, finding ways to get himself into scoring areas before shooting or finding open teammates with hard, accurate passes. McTavish has a bomb of a shot and man strength already. The potential is definitely there for him to be a 30-goal scorer in the NHL. It is tough to predict where McTavish will be selected in the 2021 Draft because mock drafts have him going anywhere from 3-17, but I think he is certainly worthy of taking in the top 10 if the team needs a pure goal scorer.
