Similar to Sean Durzi, Hollowell is a 19-year-old right-handed defenseman from the OHL.
Had an underwhelming draft year, but he surged for the Soo Greyhounds this past year – 12 goals and 56 points in 63 games. He is only 5’9″, but can more than make-up for his size with his skill and puckhandling.
As our Dylan Fremlin mentions in his write-up about Hollowell, he produced extremely well this season.
Hollowell’s 32 points at 5v5 ranked fourth in the OHL among defencemen and his 56 points in all-situations ranked fourth behind highly touted prospects Evan Bouchard, Nicolas Hague and Ryan Merkley according to prospect-stats.com. Further diving into that wonderful resource brings even more encouraging news in regards to Hollowell, as he ranked third among defencemen in estimated points per 60 behind only Bouchard and teammate Conor Timmins.
