Current Team: Barrie Colts, OHL
Drafted: Third Round, 81st Overall, 2011
Once considered to be little more than a big body bound for checking-line duty at the next level, Anthony Camara has changed a lot of minds this year by overhauling his offensive game.
After a dismal 14-point campaign a year ago, Camara has exploded for 28 goals and 22 points this season, with plenty of time left to augment his totals.
A hot start to the year earned him a surprise spot on Team Canada for the World Juniors, where he reminded the hockey world that his offensive improvement has not come at the expense of his notorious physical game. Camara received a suspension for dishing out the hardest hit of the tournament (video above), but a closer look reveals that the brutal blow was completely clean.
Though he may never justify comparisons to Milan Lucic, Camara should be a prototypical big bad Bruin.
