The Dallas Stars have selected Nicholas Caamano, a right wing from the Flint Firebirds in the OHL. He had 37 points through 64 games this year. Caamano is one of the youngest players in the draft with an early September birthday.

Caamano is a two way winger who is solid in all areas of the ice. He's an averaged sized forward at 6'1", 185lbs and is seen as being a good skater. Once he gets going he can be hard to stop and likes to drive the net.

However he can get caught with his head down when he tries to control the puck and can get caught out.

Caamano is a solid all around player who is at home both sitting infront of the oppositions net and also coming back to cover defensively.

He has been used by the Flint Firebirds on the penalty kill and uses his stick effectively to keep the shooting lanes clear. He can become too enthuastic and chase the puck on the penalty kill. Caamano makes sure that he comes back to help out defensively and can backcheck well.

He's begun to develop a scoring touch and as a young player he could take some steps forward offensively in the next year or two.

Caamano is showing signs of greater offensive potential but he's already got the skills and work ethic to be a solid bottom six forward.
