Very good pick Habs fans. He's a hell of a player.

Thrower is a hard-nosed, hard-hitting blueliner. Owns a rocket of a slapshot and grew leaps and bounds defensively this year, showing huge growth in his decision making with and without the puck. Was forced to play a ton of minutes late in the season and proved that he can be a #1 defenceman when the Blades lost key defenceman to injury. He leads by example and will fight any challenger, also excelling as an agitator. A likely top 45 selection in the draft, but could go as high as the late 20's.

NHL Style Comparable: Kevin Bieksa/Kris Letang hybrid

Top End Potential: #3 Defenceman, 2nd Unit PK, 2nd Unit PP

Pick Prediction: 25-40th Overall
