WHL Dmen in 2012 - Official Thread

The 2012 draft is going to be huge for blueliners...especially in the WHL. Even taking a look at this summer's Ivan Hlinka squad, 4 of the defenceman are from the WHL, Griffin Reinhart, Matt Dumba, Derrick Pouliot and Morgan Rielly.

That doesn't even touch on Ryan Murray, who played on the team last year as a very young 1993. He didn't look out of place at all, playing up to his competition during that event as well.

That also doesn't include players like Jaynen Rissling, Damon Severson, Dalton Thrower, Reid Gow and whoever else might make their way out of the woodwork. It also doesn't even touch on guys playing in other CHL leagues, the US or in Europe.

With those high calibre guys mentioned above, I wouldn't be shocked if there were 5 WHL defenseman taken in the top 12-15 picks next June.

Talk about a scary thought. I can't wait to see how it all unfolds.
