Brian Lashoff - Where would he go in 09 draft?

He went undrafted last year and the Detroit Red Wings scooped him up as a UFA.

Past year
Quote:
Traded to Kingston as part of a five-player deal in December.
Emerged on top pairing in Kingston and earned the team captaincy. (Amazing)
Starred for a weak team (35-6-13-19, minus-1), logging big minutes in all situations.
Signed an AHL amateur tryout contract and turned heads in Grand Rapids.
Finished AHL regular season (6-1-4-5) in impressive fashion
and kept it going in playoffs (8-1-4-5).
A quote from a Wings scout

Quote:
"To me, he's just going upward. He's skating well, he's moving the puck, making smart decisions. He's physical, he plays the body, he defends the net well and he finishes checks with authority. It was a great signing. We're ecstatic with how he's developed and played." - Red Wings scout Mark Leach
Kid turns 19, July 16th.

i was fairly surprised no-one spent a 7th on him, but it's possible the wings were the only team interested, and knew they could just sign him after.

IF this was his final year of eligibility, and ignoring the AHL play of course, i wouldnt be surprised to see a team spend a 4th or a 5th on him.

I wouldn't hesitate to take him in the top three rounds.

I'm a fan.

He's a really smart player who generally keeps things simple. He's a very good skater and I think he's improved a lot on his defensive positioning and zone coverage. He loves to carry the puck out of the zone , but more often than not, his rushes amounted to little offensively. I think that has to do with Kingston's inability as a team to produce offense, in particular from the forwards. They seemed to have a lot of trouble with the transition game. A reason why a guy like Lashoff didn't produce even more points (as well as a guy like Gudbranson). But he's capable of a lot more, and if Kingston is able to improve next season, he could crack the 50 point barrier and be an OHL all star.

Seems like a solid bet to be a pro hockey player, especially with the way he's progressing.

It shows you how ridiculous it is that we draft players at 17/18 years old.

Most of these kids never show their true colors or get a shot to show what they're made of until a few years later.
