With the 36th pick in NHL Entry Draft, Columbus Blue Jackets are proud to select from Calgary Hitmen defencemen, Micheal Stone.
"Micheal Stone is really complete and mature physically as a defencemen. He can hurts you with his hits just as much as with his wrist shots from the point. He needs to work on his foot speed, but we feel like he can get that to NHL level before reaching pros and beside that he has good upside everywhere. He's got a good first pass good positioning, he knows how to play the man and he can also be an asset on the PP. He loves to shoot the puck."
