Engineers draft Kris Letang, the offensive defenseman of eight winning playoff series, including two trips to the Stanley Cup Finals, and 13 points in a championship postseason in 2009. He has played in an all-star game, in 2011, during his best season in which he scored 50 points. He has demonstrated the ability to check well defensively as well as carry the puck offensively. He has had a top-3 blueline role on one of the best teams in hockey for over a three-year stretch of his not quite 5 year career. He has played in only 321 NHL regular season games but also 59 NHL playoff games. It is his relatively extensive playoff experience and success that makes him a worthy pick at this point.

Is a silky smooth skater with tremendous lateral movement and acceleration. Can pinch in effectively, or roam around like a fourth forward. Owns a lot of creativity and goal-scorers' hands. Also owns leadership qualities and solid hitting skills.
