He's a steady, reliable d-man that had a very tough year because of injuries but was fantastic in the playoffs when he was healthy and that is why he jumped up on a lot of people's lists. He has been compared to a poor man's Wade Redden.

To me, KW is one of the safest picks amongst D-men.
Poor man's Wade Redden is not a bad comparison -
he's big(though lanky at this point), mobile, and has
a few nice skills when making the switch to offense.

The kind of D-man that makes you wonder how good he'll be once
he matures, grows into an NHL'ers frame.

Wharton could be a guy that gets overlooked due to injuries. A poor man's Wade Redden is a decent comparison, but I feel Wharton will be more of a factor physically, but is far less skilled with the puck than Redden is.

I don't think Wharton will be much of a physical presence. He doesn't play a physical game. Instead he focuses on poke-checking or rubbing the opposition out along the boards.

He's a good skater with strong mobility, well above average hockey sense and reliable defensively. He had a very strong playoffs and was Ottawa's best player down the stretch.

Despite his lanky frame he handled a large, grinding Brampton offense well in the corners and came out on top after most battles.

I would look for him to be drafted in the early to mid second round. It's not inconceivable that he sneaks into the first, but I would be mildly surprised.

I think he will be once he physically matures. He just turned 18 in March, he's still growing.

Remember, this year he was battling injuries.
