Ducks haven't drafted a lot of smaller guys in the first two rounds since Murray took the reigns, but I think if the player is talented enough (ie. Palmieri in '09) they don't see the lack of size as a problem. Shinkaruk looked solid in the U-18's as a 17 year old, and the few games I saw him and Etem in the WHL playoffs last season, it became pretty obvious he doesn't need Etem to produce high numbers. Interesting prospect and one of the most offensively talented players in the draft, but I see him as a winger once he goes pro.
