McIlrath wasn't drafted for nothing.

He's the right handed, nasty, gritty, bomb from the point on the PP, defenseman that will log a ton of minutes, that is being asked for.

That's why they drafted him. And if Staal and Del Zotto are any indication, he's not going to take long to reach the NHL. If they see he's physically ready for it, they'll give him every opportunity to make the team. Just like Staal and Del Zotto.

They didn't draft him to clog up the defense corp with over-priced UFA's.

They deliberately drafted him for this exact reason.
