Highlights
1-time U20 WJC Gold Medal 1
1-time U20 WJC Silver Medal 1

He picks apart on-the-puck defenders in much the same way an elite NFL quarterback breaks down defensive coverages -- one read, one component at a time. Mercer deploys a wide array of false signals to trick defenders out of space, to pivot one direction with every intention of quickly transferring his weight in the opposite one. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide
