3rd. rounder.

So is he beating the odds?

Rangers aren't exactly an offensive powerhouse so his low scoring there has to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Good size at 6'2", so he should be able to add some weight. His team site has him at 6'1", 191 lbs.

2011 Draft Guide:

On a rather weak Sudbury team, Leivo had a relentless motor on the forecheck. He has good size,
and his style of play translates well to the NHL. He could be the type of player that doesn’t put up
numbers as good as other draftees, but his style of play makes it quite possible for him to find a
role on the bottom 6 of a team down the road in his career.
