It's too early to say for sure, but I cannot see him in the top 10. Maybe a later 1st rounder a la Schultz or Green last year (not a stylistic comparison, just draft position), or even into the 2nd round. He looks like a good one, but I'm not sure any one aspect of his game jumps off the page enough to push him up real high in a strong draft. I don't know what style he normally plays, but there were no signs at all of him wanting to handle to puck or get involved in any offense against Russia. He played well enough in his own zone, making short, safe plays and not shying away from anything. He looked pretty cool and steady and tough enough. But not "special" in any way. Quietly competent.
