#95 Overall, Sabres Select F Josh Bloom

Ok, we’re done with Russia for a bit. We snag 18 year old, 6’2” & 183 lb left handed forward who finished his first season in the OHL.  Made it onto Canada’s U17 team last season, but not any international play this past year.

Josh Bloom is a talented winger who plays a high-paced game and consistently generates offence for one of Ontario’s top teams, the Toronto Nationals. Displaying high-end intelligence, Bloom is a tremendous decision-maker with impressive vision and sense of the ice. He excels in both the role of a sniper and a playmaker, making himself a dangerous offensive weapon in more ways than one.
