From the Fantasy Prospects Report and Draft Guide:

An exceptional student of the game, Stefishen is often miles ahead of the play, getting where the puck is going to be before his 20 year-old peers have gotten rid of it. Severely lacking in muscle and explosiveness, an overall lack of strength is the only thing holding the lethal passer and garbage man back from being a blue chip prospect."

He's a Cliff Ronning clone and will be an elite 3rd/tweener 2nd line player that can help you win. He has good bloodlines- he comes from hard-working stock and his brother is a Dub alum playing in the UK.
Before anyone jumps on this line...please note that this should be addressed as he develops over the next couple of seasons and no doubt will be addressed in a weight room watched not only by Predators strength and conditioning coach David Good, but also by the Buckeyes' strength and training coaches.

I really like this pick! Taylor was a top player on his team last season, contributed in all areas of the rink, and played on both the power play and penalty killing units. With a few years in college, Taylor should be able to fill out his frame and refine the skills that have gotten him this far.

A real interesting pick for sure, one that we will probably have to wait a while to see the results of, but one that hopefully will turn out positively.
