Walman, the highest ranked OJHL eligible player was actually passed over in two consecutive OHL Drafts before joining the Toronto Junior Canadiens. The forward turned all-around defenseman now finds himself in Central Scouting’s Top 50 and has a commitment to play for Providence this fall.
Walman makes good decisions with the puck, whether it be carrying or passing. He is still growing, but has shown good offensive instincts with glimpses of PP QB potential. A great skater with speed and acceleration, Walman’s lateral mobility is also a plus. With a good shot to boot, Walman is also an athletic specimen, which has greatly added his position transition.
