    I was going to feature this guy in my thread as well. Teammate of Barclay Goodrow, a Kings development camp invite. They put resources into looking at that team.

    from what ive read, sounds like he is pretty solid defensively, and plays well on a team that plays a defense 1st mentality like us. Figured D would be a strength.

    Sounds like he's got a good head start in playing the right way to fit in with the Kings.

    Among the Ontario Hockey League's winningest head coaches of all time, Butler's teams are typically among the league's defensive elite.

    Playing for the 58-year-old "is kind of tough on your offence sometimes," said Amadio, an 18-year-old (1996 birth year) centre, who was ranked No. 68 among North American skaters in NHL Central Scouting's final rankings heading into the 2014 draft. "But he definitely makes you a better, all-round player."

    The six-foot-one, 194-pounder went on to explain how Butler expects his players to be at their best at both ends of the ice.

    "Stan stresses that offence starts in the defensive zone," Amadio said. "To play at the next level, you definitely need to be a two-way player and he gets you ready for the pros."

    ISS always has 3 strengths and 2 weakness for every prospect, so sometimes they are just looking for stuff. I could be that his skating and hands are just so good, by comparison his D is listed as a weakness.

    Best write-up I've found so far on Amadio:

    Michael Amadio Scouting Report: 2014 NHL Draft Prospect Profile | The Hockey Guys

    Strengths – Michael Amadio is one of the most defensively responsible players in this draft class. He’s a very smart player with a high hockey IQ, and he always understands where to be on the ice. His positioning defensively is excellent, and he’s always strong on the back check. He often takes on tough assignments and plays against opposing team’s best offensive players, and he does a good job of holding his own and shadowing them. With the puck, he keeps things simple and doesn’t force a play if it isn’t there. He’s very smart with the puck and goes through his progressions quickly. I think his vision and playmaking ability is very underrated, and that he does a good job of moving himself around the ice to create angles or lanes to get passes/shots through. His shot has some power to it and it’s fairly accurate, as well. He can cycle, protect the puck well along the boards, and he’s very strong on his skates. His skating ability is relatively good, as it doesn’t hinder his ability to play a strong 200-foot game. Amadio is an excellent penalty killer, and I think he has a little more offense to give than we’ve seen to this point.

    Weaknesses – I think Amadio’s biggest weakness is simply that he doesn’t have high-end offensive upside. He can chip in offensively, but he’ll never be a big point producer or game breaker. His game is very well rounded overall. If he can add some explosiveness in his first three steps and continue to hone his skills elsewhere, he should be fine.

    Career Projection – Amadio projects to be a third line center who can chip in here and there offensively, but is primarily used in defensive situations and as a penalty killer.
    I like it.

    An original King Dave Amadio was a bruising defenseman, tough. Wonder if he is related?

    I really wish the Kings would've made a move on Goodrow. His game has "Kings Hockey" written all over it. Unfortunately the Sharks nabbed him.
