He is regarded as the top tough guy defencemen in this draft and if it weren't for the fact that there are two defencemen who are brilliant two way players (Thelen looks to be something truly special in both ends in time) I feel Valabik would be a top ten pick.

He is said to have a heavy shot and that he has good hands too.

If you go by what were written about him about a month before the season ended it says that he is "o.k." on the offencive zone so take it for what it is worth.

I think that if we were drafting for need instead of taking the best player available that he would be third on my list of what I would be looking to add to our team at this point in our prospects but, he seems to be a dandy and whoever does get him will likely be happy to have him.
