This is an awesome pick. High risk, high reward. We already have tons of 'safe' prospects, this kid could be a gem.

This is an interesting pick, I wonder if Jarrod Maidens could be, down the road, Z. Smith's replacement if the rumors are true & if Murray decides to trade him for Hjarmlsson.

I like this pick & I like the fact that Ottawa is picking bigger players. Maidens was great in the OHL playoffs the yr before when he single handlely carried Owne Sound to beat Cameron's Mississauga team. He has good size, has an iron will, can score & if not injured would have been a 2nd rd pick, good pick by Ottawa.

Looks like the Murrays , as per usual , are looking at players who's stock dropped prior to the final rankings due to injury or other issues (stone, Cowen).

Tsn had him set to go around 48th or so.

http://www.tsn.ca/draftcentre/feature/?id=9829

Iss had him ranked as the the 21st North American Skater in the midterm ranking. But then dropped to 35th due to concussion issues.

Seems like a decent pick.

Haven't seen the kid play, but from what I keep hearing about him is that he's a lot more offensive than a guy like Zack Smith. Doesn't sound like a bottom 6 forward at all.

Well I doubt he is going to replace Spezza or Turris, he's not that offensive & has a rugged style of play. IMO he is best suited for the 3rd line especially if NHL teams are going towards a more offensive 3rd line. This yr Ottawa could be trying that if Regin ends up on the 3rd line as centre.

It's not like we're slotting this kid to play anytime soon. Theoretically, if this kid were to hit the NHL, it'd be years from now. His style doesn't sound like a bottom 6 forward, and with primarily offensive tools, I don't see the comparison to replacing a guy like Zack Smith. He either tops out and plays as a top 6 forward, improves his defensive and physical game to be valued as a bottom 6 forward one day, or he never makes the NHL.

Right now, from what I'm hearing, he's no bottom 6 forward.

I just read this on thehockeywriters:

"The big centerman plays a strong north-south game leaving his mark around the goal crease with his ability to stickhandle and shoot in traffic. Once considered a first round lock, Maidens is an enticing package of size, grit and skill and his hard-nose approach will attract suitors but his latest injury will raise serious concerns."

I've got my fingers crossed that his undisclosed injury wasn't a concussion but just something embarrassing, like bruised testes or something. Still though, good gamble IMO.

I'm pretty sure the injury has been disclosed as a concussion. That's what everyone has reported.

Great choice to go for a player with some injury troubles to get a guy with a high upside. I think this guy has top six potential at the NHL level if he is able to fully recover. High hockey IQ, great shot, high vision, high potential. Similar to Mark Stone that he had been projected to be a 1st round pick before having an injury filled season.

Very interested in following Maidens development over the next few years. Hopefully the injury is something he can overcome.

lmao well I don't want to downplay the severity of bruised taters, but you probably have a better chance at a full recovery than concussion.

It helps that Ottawa has a great medical staff. Can't stress how big of an asset Don Chow is. They severely missed him when he was gone. I have a little bit of inside knowledge there and believe me they were extremely happy when he was able to come back.

Hear hear. I only know that as a long time Sens fans, but he is an asset indeed. But still, no matter how good your medical staff, concussions are a very scary thing.

I've heard some people say there's HOF potential there. Not to get crazy, it's theoretical, but he might just have that kind of upside.

I agree. I have never seen him play, but from what i have heard(and that's not much), he definitely has HOF potential.
