Kris Russell. In 22 games so far this season he has 9 goals, 9 assists and is a plus 10. This is only his 2nd season in the WHL and has quickly climbed up the depth ladder. He is an offensive, jump up in the rush, type of d-man. His only drawback is his size - but he is tough. He was on the gold medal winning U-18 tourney last year.
When you look at where comparable guys have gone you can probably get a decent idea of where he'll go. Ian White went #191 overall, and White was scoring quite a bit more in his draft year than Russell this year. Derek Meech went #229. Russell will probably be in the same neighborhood .. 7th-9th round.
