Was my 29th ranked WHLer for the draft and predicted he would be a 7th rounder. Safe to say the Preds thought otherwise.

#29 - Brendan Leipsic - Portland Winterhawks - LC -

Leipsic is a small, but highly-skilled offensive forward for the Winterhawks. He's got very high end hands and isn't afraid to mix up things and get dirty, despite his size. Likes to play the role of an agitator, but can also hurt teams on the scoreboard. Had a very good playoff run for Portland and will be relied upon big time next season with the likely departure of Sven Baertschi. Not sure how he's valued out there, but his size is the big knock. I like him as a 4th rounder, likely to be taken in the 6th or 7th, if at all.

NHL Style Comparable: A left handed Andrew Shaw

Top End Potential: 2nd Line Forward

Pick Prediction: 7th Round
