Ciccolini was voted the OJHL’s top prospect in 2019, and here’s a quick blurb on him from his head coach Jeff Angelidis.
“He’s grounded, his family is grounded,” said Jeff Angelidis, his coach the past two seasons with the Jr. Canadiens. “Wonderful people. Never did he let the attention get to his head. Some of these kids have a little bit of swagger to them. I’ve never seen that with Eric. He’s head down, feet on the ground and continues to grind. A ton of fun to work with. “When your best players are your hardest workers, you’re bound for success.”
He appears to be a player with some decent upside given where he was ranked ahead of the draft, and he’s another prospect for the Blueshirts to watch in the NCAA.
