He's also not small and moves pretty well. He looked pretty solid to me at the WJCs. He might need a year or two in the AHL, but he shows a ton of promise.

At 51, there are a lot of options, but my favorite is Nick Ebert. That kid has "Ryan Suter" written all over him. Tanner Richard is a speedy Swiss center at Guelph. Brady Vail is a big, versatile American winger (is there any other kind?) at Windsor.

This draft looks pretty heavy on defensemen in the middle rounds. I'm interested to see what we do. We need at least one goalie and we're a little sparse on forwards. As usual at the draft table, I'm expecting the unexpected.
