The point was that it's doubtfull that any team is going to spend a pick on a smaller Dman like Hicketts in the 1st round unless there is a huge amount of offensive production and projection.
Maybe he ends up in the 4th round like Kulak went to Calgary in the 12 draft.
Ryan Murphy is another small D man who wen't in R1.
I was thinking that Tyson Barrie would be more of a comparable than Kulak, Kulak did not really improve after his draft year, I'm thinking that Hicketts will probably be better than Kulak, but maybe not as good as Barrie.
