He's one of the youngest players in the draft. 6'4". Had a ton of penalty minutes.

He is an ex-conman that has come a long way. Known for his witty nicknames, as well as once being involved in a heated love triangle.

Big, tough looking East Coaster. Potential pilon? Or late-blooming project?

Was about to post that article too.

He's the Q's version of Dylan McIlrath.

16 fights in the QMJHL last season. Future enforcer? At least he seems better than Marc-Andre Roy.

"Where did this guy come from?" reads Hannay’s Red Line Report evaluation. "Guys in the Q have already seen enough to know they don’t want any part of him."
Nice. Sounds a bit like SOB. Anyone know how his skating is?

Don't want your enforcer to play on Defense.

The six-foot-four 190-pounder was among the QMJHLs fighting and penalty minute leaders at age 17. He has been compared to New Jersey Devils defender Colin White, although his foot-speed needs work.

He knows his role, Gallagher said. He makes a good first pass and anybody who takes advantage of one of his teammates has to deal with him.
Hell be considered for selection in the later rounds.

Wow that`s a surprise! I didn`t think Gillis believed in drafting such players. I have seen him play a few times.

Energy player with reckless abandon and he has some upside but not particularly skilled. He`s a pretty good fighter but he is not bullying the Q by any means

7th round is a good time to throw caution into the wind and see what happens.

Tough and respected. Word is already circulating that there is a new heavyweight champ in the QMJHL after young Hannay went toe-to-toe with Ashton Bernard in Cape Breton. Not afraid of anybody. Team-first guy. Teammates love him. Any NHL team selecting after the fifth or sixth round looking for character will find it in aces with this kid.

It kinda sounds like Hannay and Friesen are of similar mold.

It sounds like the Canuck's took two grinders, two mobile defensemen, and one unknown goalie.

The only pick I'm excited for is McNally (though very limited knowledge). Hopefully the other picks can impress over the next couple years.

Article on McNelly, but with a tidbit at the end that indicates what Gillis is thinking.

Quote:
At least he will fit right in with the Canucks stable of young defencemen who are offensive-minded and college educated. The list includes Evan Oberg, who went to the University of Minnesota-Duluth, Kevin Connauton, a Western Michigan University alum, and Chris Tanev, who was just signed out of the Rochester Institute of Technology.
"Because McNally is full committed to Harvard teams passed on him and he dropped down," Gillis said. "With the number of young defencemen we have, we didn't think it was a hindrance.
"We want him to stay in Harvard we want smart kids.

"We think he has a tremendous amount of potential. And now we have enough offensive defencemen and we can move into another category."
He wanted tough defensive D-man at that point, and Polasek was probably too good of a two-way, edgy blueliner to pass up, so with the last pick, he selected a late-blooming Hannay.
