After watching Windsor-Kitchener I am now a Ben Johnson fan. Wasn't thrilled about the pick before but he impressed me. His forechecking and defense is fantastic. His line was matched up against the Kitchener top line all game and really shut them down. He was also great on the PK. Didn't see much from him offensively though.

Two games of watching Ben Thomson I can see why scouts weren't very high on him. He really doesn't stand out much, his skating is mediocre and his shot sucks. But I also can understand why the Devils liked him. He does well on the boards and he gets pucks on net. He had at least 3 shots on net in both games. He also seems to have good hockey sense. He's definitely a project.
