Not for the 2012 draft, but 16-year-old Barrie Colts D Aaaron Ekblad is playing very very well against a tough Ottawa 67s team right now. He has some sick skills, has a physical game, is a good skater and brings size. He's noticeable every time he steps on the ice in a good way just based on his size and skating alone. 2014 draft, of course.

The Barrie - Ottawa game is on Sportsnet.

Also, Habs should consider Colts goalie Mathias Niederberger in this year's draft. He's been really really solid throughout the year and has stepped it up in these playoffs. He's 20 in November, but could go back to the Colts since this is his rookie season in the OHL. He's really quick with the legs, moving side to side and up and down. I like the intensity he shows in net too. You can just tell he's a competitive guy.
