I really liked his game at the prospect game. Rugged SOB. Timmins is a boss. Really happy with both second round draft pick.

I heard his name a lot but didn't get a chance to follow draft as much this year. What type of player is he and whats his upside?

Thrower and Dietz will both be playing on the blueline for Saskatoon next season, who host the Memorial Cup, can't wait.

I will bet you two Quebecers will be drafted in the late rounds.

All round defensman with good offensive upside, he's also a fantastic fighter.

If Thrower was projected to go late in the 1st round, why did he fall, especially when you consider the popularity of dman in this draft?

The Blades selected Thrower with the 30th overall pick in the 2008 bantam draft. Known for his offensive skills, Thrower scored the overtime winner in the B.C. midget AAA championship series for the Northwest Vancouver Giants.
Nice story on his way up and the battles he faced.

My favorite pick so far. And that includes the Galchenyuk pick.

NHL feed: THROWER is being interviewed as I type this!!

Edit: He said he just modeled his game after Bieksa which is the type of D we need.

Great pick...here is McCagg's scouting report on Thrower from another thread:

"Thrower..he's got issues defensively though, gets burned a lot at this point. Plus he's a late birthday, and is undersized for a defenceman, and needs work on his pivoting and agility. You have to love his grit and shot though"
