Going with size in the draft. Miller, Kreider, now Iverson.

Well Bluenote had this guy as an option for the 2nd rounder. I'll take that as a good sign!

Sounds like just what the Rangers need. Pretty impressive point totals for third line minutes with no pp too.

Just because he's not pure finesse doesn't mean he's a 'safe pick.'

Supposedly his upside is a Dustin Brown type - though most likely not as talented, but who knows.

He was stuck down the depth chart this year and still posted solid numbers. Could be poised for a big year next year.

VERY happy with picking Iverson.

I didn't think he'd be available for us.

Objectivity requires me to note haven't had chance to see who else was an option.
That conditional disclaimer, someone good enough for nyr2k2, Bluenote and Trxjw is usually good enough for the bernmeister seal of approval.

I like the mix of size, skill and physical play. Probably 3rd line upside but with an edge. Works for me.

If everything goes right, he could play top 6.

Really hurt by the Winterhawks' depth. But still performed great.

This is a mock from June 2013 that had us selecting Iverson 19th overall.

He did apparently, but I don't see any playoff stats for him. This is from May 11th.

Keegan Iverson scored the overtime winner as the Winterhawks erased a three-goal, third-period deficit to snap a three-game losing skid and defeat the Edmonton Oil Kings 6-5 on Sunday, sending the Western Hockey League championship to a seventh game.
Edit: His playoff stats are listed on the WHL website. 4 goals 4 assists -1 in 21 games.

Pretty much.

I see conflicting reports as to whether he's a center or a wing. Would love his profile even more if he is a competent pivot.

The mock is a year old. Lots of stuff changes in a year.

Iverson is a ****ing awesome pick, here. Cannot believe he fell to us.

Absolutely agreed. Never thought we had a chance at landing Iverson, especially not in the 3rd round. This kid is a gamer, he's got big potential.

how many Hawks are graduating this year? i.e. how far up the charts is he looking to move up next season?

Well no doubt he's a nyr pick. He'll fit right in with our can't score tradition.






Projs as a 3rd line tweeter type. Not a high skill guy but tough and scrappy.

You cannot make this stuff up.

Hockey's different here
