C Alex Friesen
Canucks 3rd pick: No. 172 overall, Niagara IceDogs of the OHL in 2009-10.
Vancouver scouts project him to be a
tough, third-line centre down the road in the NHL
He was was given the “Heart of the Team” award last season.
"He's a very hard-nosed player, really good on faceoffs," Gillis said.
"He scored in the top-three in our psychological and intelligence testing.
"He's not a big guy, at 5-foot-10, but he's a very, very competitive player. Hard nosed, good skills, cans score goals."
