I like this pick.

Talent Analysis

Iverson is a big-bodied forward with 200-foot skills. Will be given every opportunity to become a reliable scorer as junior career progresses. Physically imposing. Battles aggressively for puck. Not a guy who gets “pushed around”.

Basically a goon?

Sounds like something we can use more of.

Nice write up.

I enjoyed this.

Keegan Iverson’s style is reminiscent of Dustin Brown of the Los Angeles Kings. This isn’t a talent comparison, but just one based on style. In terms of potential there is an outside chance he could become a second line centre in the NHL, but his potential is more likely as an effective third line player going forward.

Physical does not equal goon.

good pick. Big body who likes to hit and he has good offensive skills. Put up good numbers playing mostly theird line minutes and nt much pp time

Not really. I mean he has good offesnive talent BUT he is also physical

I like this pick because I'm moving to Portland and plan to watch the Hawks often.

EpicDing 06-28-2014 11:35 AM

Looks to be a safer pick than Duclair/Buch. How's his defense?

Synergy27 06-28-2014 11:36 AM

Also, is there any truth to the rumor that this kid hates to practice?

Not a goon.
A wrecking ball.

Sounds like they got him hoping he'll wind up a quality role player on the bottom-6. They are trying to restock the system with a lower risk player.

He's not a goon in any way.

He has the basic skill set to perform a Pouliot type role. Battle on the boards, get to the net.

Practice? We talking about practice?

Barbara Underhill 06-28-2014 11:41 AM

But how's his truculence?

To be honest, I prefer the high risk, high return picks like The Duke and The Butcher, but I guess they felt they wanted a safer guy, particularly after a super-risky pick in the second round.

Im not sure he is safer...

Developing into a bigger power forward type is a tall order for anyone.

Duclair looks like he could be a steal. He was having a monster season befor ethe concussion. I also like the high risk/high reward picks BUT i like this pick as well. This kid is big likes to hit and can score to boot

Lundquest 06-28-2014 11:44 AM

I like this pick.

Trxjw 06-28-2014 11:45 AM

On mobile but I LOVE this pick. Hoped the Rangers would get him.
