Good kid, graduated high school with honors at 16 (prior to last hockey season). Not as flashy a player as the others but he's definitely a player i'd look out for if he gets more ice time and puts it all together.

Ryan Murray is nothing short of phenomenal. You hear the hyperbole year after year about how X player is a future superstar but I have not been as impressed with a prospect I've viewed live as I have with Ryan Murray. Complete defenseman and doesn't seem to lack in any area.
I'm glad you touched on Hanson, he's a guy that gets frequently overlooked on that deep Portland team. With a good enough season, Hanson could go as high as the second round. Very intriguing prospect.

I think Ryan Murray is going to be a franchise defenseman in the NHL - a guy who isn't going to dominate with his numbers, but will consistently show up on a nightly basis and just do everything right.
