The guy in your avatar, IMO. I don't see him as the shutdown guy people are portraying him as, even though he'll likely play that role at the WJCs. In the NHL, generally your shutdown guys are bigger and more physical.

The reason why Hudon gets assignments like that in junior is because he's very, very smart, and generally knows where to be whenever he's on the ice, either on offense or defensively.. Like Desharnais, he's not the biggest guy, and his best attribute by far is his hockey IQ.

A Derek Roy comparison might not be too far off either. Think along the lines of Roy and Desharnais.
