2013-14: Bracco moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan to skate for the USA Hockey National Team Development Program. He led the NTDP U17 team in scoring during the regular season. In 54 regular season games he scored 17 goals with 54 assists and was +3 with 20 penalty minutes. Bracco scored 3 goals with 8 assists and 4 penalty minutes for the USA U17 team at the 2014 World Hockey Challenge. The USA defeated Canada Pacific, 4-0, in the gold medal game.

2014-15: Bracco returned to Ann Arbor for his second season in the NTDP program and was part of the USA’s gold medal U18 squad at the 2015 World Junior Championship. He was the NTDP U18 team’s third-leading scorer behind Auston Matthews and Matthew Tkachuk, scoring 30 goals with a team-leading 64 assists and 10 penalty minutes in 64 regular season games.

Bracco scored 3 goals with 11 assists and had an even plus/minus with no penalties in nine playoff games. 

Talent Analysis

Bracco is an excellent playmaker with high end puck handling skills. Smaller than fellow Leafs' prospects Mitch Marner and William Nylander, he plays with the same type of creativity and uses his speed and awareness both to create pressure on defenders and avoid dangerous situations.


Bracco was a dominant scorer for Kitchener in 2015-16,  joining the Rangers in October after leaving  Boston College. He will attend Maple Leafs' training camp in 2016-17 looking to earn an entry-level contract before likely returning to the Rangers for his second OHL season. He is also a candidate to skate for the USA in the 2016 World Junior Championship. An undersized but highly-engaged forward, Bracco projects as a Tyler Johnson/Brendan Gallagher-type winger.
