Would like to know more about this guy. Good size and he's putting up points similar to other defenseman forecast to go higher, despite him being a year younger.

Looking at his size, right handed shot, and some scouting reports, I think of Adam Larsson. Is that a good comp?

Larsson is a much more gifted player. I dunno, he kind of looks like Johnny Boychuk.

My 8th ranked WHLer for the draft:

Quote:
8 - Damon Severson - Kelowna Rockets - RD - Severson is a big, fairly mobile two-way defenceman for the Rockets. Owns a hard slapshot and can play on the powerplay. Solid physical tools and projects well as a top 4 defender. A likely 40-60 selection in the draft.

Nope. That comes from a report I've submitted to FC.

I will be posting a full WHL ranking of players closer to the draft. As it stands right now I have a pretty comprehensive list of WHL guys, something like 88 players. I will post a top 40 or 50 with HM's as well.

I've been really impressed. I knew he was a solid player, but he really solidifed his 1st round position IMO. I jumped him from late 20s to early 20s.

I remember drafting a guy named D. Severson with my 1st round pick in NHL 11 or 12 (can't remember which). He was a defensive D-man and ended up becoming a huge star for my team (rated 93 overall). I wonder if this is the same guy or if it was just a random name

what is so special about this kid? I saw him playing in Kamloops several times and did not appreciate his performance.

Taking a defenseman from the Rockets is rarely a bad choice.

Depends when you watched him in those games. He had an up and down year and missed time from injury. If he was just returning from injury when you saw him there would have definitely been some rust.

He won't do a lot to jump off the page at you, he's just well rounded and has a good skillset as far as projections go.

That is correct. That is why I think he will be drafted in third round not first/second.

It seems as though the defenseman factory in Kelowna is pumping out another sleeper in the form of Damon Severson. The likes of Duncan Keith, Shea Weber, and more recently Tyson Barrie have come out of the Rockets program to find success in the professional ranks, and it seems like Severson is next in line to join them. He does all the little things right and is a very effective defender. His big frame and rugged defensive attitude, blended with his improving offensive instincts, will carry the Melville, SK native to the bright lights of the NHL Draft.
I talked to him at the Top Prospects Game. He is a very down to earth guy who looks like a steal of a prospect. Love his all around game and ability to play in all situations. Versitile and effective. Very early second round pick IMO.

Why? Just because I said he doesn't jump off the page at you?

I think there is too much raw skill there for him to fall outside the top 45. If he does, some team is going to get excellent value.

This comes from the Kamloops newspaper

JUST NOTES: The Rockets were 2-for-3 on the power play; the Blazers were 0-for-4. . . . Wudrick has 37 goals and the Rockets are 23-4-0 when he scores. . . . Brown stopped 25 shots in posting his 80th career victory, three shy of Kelly Guard's career record. . . . The Rockets hold a 4-3 edge in the season series, which has two games remaining. They'll play March 11 here and March 12 in Kelowna. . . . The Daily News Three Stars were: 1. Bloodoff - two key goals; 2. Goulbourne - first WHL goal, two fights and a pest; 3. D Damon Severson, Kelowna - simple and effective. . . . Kamloops C Chase Schaber, who has missed 22 of the last 24 games with a leg injury, took the pregame warmup but didn't play. He may get back Friday against the visiting Lethbridge Hurricanes. D Brandon Underwood (knee) also may get back on Friday.

Really describes Severson well

2 reasons:

1. The top 10 or so of the 2012 NHL draft class is richer in defensemen than normal.

2. The top 5 or so of the 2012 WHL draft class is richer in defensemen than normal.

Clarification: He is not a special player in my eyes but he will play five to seven plus years in NHL
because of his reliability in his own zone.

I thought Barrie was a middle second rounder a couple years ago but it did not happen. Even worse, his performance was far better than Severson.

Huska was absent for three weeks (WJC). The Rockets got bombed in the first round. Too bad Severson could not display his performance much longer. That's one of factors too.

I dunno, you can talk about current play and what went wrong and what went right, but in the end it's still about projecting the player. Severson has a great frame and that's a big reason why he will go higher than his play would likely have suggested this season.

You also don't touch on the Under 18's, where he recently played and looked very strong. I had the chance to watch almost all of his games and he was a leader and played big minutes in key situations there.

NOt saying...just saying.
They are also similar in the sense that they both took interesting routes to the WHL.

Weber was never drafted and was added to Kelowna's PPL after he put up almost 100 points in his second year of bantam.
He then played Junior B, which isn't really unheard of (there are plenty of BC kids that play at least a handful of games in one of the three Jr. B leagues), but he is unique because he played there one season before he was selected in the NHL draft.

Unlike Weber, Severson was drafted, but he was playing house league.
I believe he went from playing bantam AA in 2007-08 to bantam A in 2008-09 (according to this), his WHL draft year, which is apparently house level in Saskatchewan.
He went on to play midget AAA and got his five games in the WHL as a midget affiliate player the following year like most talented kids do, but getting drafted out of house league is pretty rare.

Are you really comparing Barrie and Severson?

Ones a tiny but aggressive puck mover, the other a large framed safe/simple two-way defensman...

The only basis for comparison is Kelowna.

I don't think he ever left the ice in the Portland/Kelowna series. I really like him and think RS is right on the money with his upside.
