Nicklas Jensen got to be first round pick last year also because of size!

By the way....the amount a early drafted defenders this year is insane. Filip Forsberg and Grigorenko got drafted insanely low!

Yeah Nikolaj Ehlers is one we all want information on, but playing in Switzerland I don't really have any info other than elite prospects.
Yeah too bad it looks like Latvia has a lot of good forward prospects but not a lot of D`s,that could be a problem after a few years,hope some rookie defencemen will show up who can play atleast at a KHL level so our defence wouldnt look as horrendous as it does.
