7. Dalton Thrower, D, Saskatoon Blades
6', 185 pounds, Shoots: R
DoB: December 20th, 1993
A late addition to the 2012 Top Prospects Game in Kelowna, Thrower thrust himself into the limelight to some degree during a spirited bout with heavyweight Thomas Wilson of the Plymouth Whalers. Wilson, another highly-touted prospect, had earlier upended Thrower's Saskatoon Blades teammate Lukas Sutter.
As a 16-year-old, Thrower benefitted from the likes of Stefan Elliott (COL) and Duncan Siemens (COL), teammates in Saskatoon that have already been through the NHL Draft experience. In 66 games this past season, Thrower scored 18 goals and added 36 assists, while collecting 103 penalty minutes. His production has steadily increased over three seasons in Saskatoon.
While not considered among the WHL's top group of defensemen when the season got underway, Thrower progressed steadily in prospect rankings due to his solid physical play and offensive skills. The native of North Vancouver, British Columbia is likely to be back in Saskatoon next season, a huge bonus as the Blades will play host to the 2013 Memorial Cup
Wow looks like a solid 2nd rounder.
Solid D who scraps, shoots R, can ship in points. and an epic name.
