Anthony Camara's red hot start to the OHL season is turning heads. The big forward scored nine goals in the first 10 games of the season, putting him in a tie for the league lead.
The most remarkable thing about Camara's early season strike-rate is his massive and unexpected improvement. In 66 games last year, split between the Saginaw Spirit and the Barrie Colts, Camara scored just 16 times. If Camara continues his exponential growth, the Bruins may have a huge steal on their hands.
The physical winger was originally thought to be nothing more than a big body. Before the season, Hockey's future described him as one of the hardest hitters in the OHL with some legitimate offensive upside. He's certainly making good on that upside. These days Camara projects to be more like Milan Lucic than Shawn Thornton.
Camara certainly has all of the physical tools to play at the NHL level. If he continues to develop his offensive game, he may surprise a lot of people when he takes the ice at the TD Garden.
At the moment Camara is on track to be more than just an energy line player, though he is more than willing to drop the gloves and bang bodies. He fits the Big Bad Bruins mold perfectly and ought to become a fan favorite.
