This is a very risky pick but likewise could reap some incredible rewards. Aidan Muir has made a name for himself out of one of the least likely places. Very few players come out of the MWEHL but Muir has worked hard enough to not only earn the captaincy of the Victory Honda Midget team, but hes made enough noise that colleges and the USHL became interested.

This is the type of work ethic that makes me think Muir will succeed. If he worked hard enough to get himself to college, hell only continue to grow. Hell be under the guidance of former-NHL coach Andy Murray at Western Michigan, and likewise is still growing and learning the more he plays.

Muir has an excellent package to offer. Playing both the left and right wings, he put up 40 points in 37 games last season. Muir also stands at 63" and weighs about 180 lbs. While he could stand to build more muscle, his time in college will only further his development physically.

Muir will hopefully develop into an extremely versatile power forward and glue guy in the locker room whose work ethic will help lead the team as well as provide a great example to his teammates on every level.
here's what i found.

Big and off to college. Sounds like a "draft and follow" kind of guy.

At least we didn't use a first round pick on him (e.g., Jankowski)

Muir is a 6'3" 180 lbs. power forward. He's a decent skater for his size, though there is still some room for improvement. With his frame, there's also the potential to add a little more strength. His biggest attribute is his grit and toughness in the dirty areas of the ice along the boards and in front of the net, and that he has the hands to make plays in tight spaces. He's also a very high energy player and a tireless worker.

He's big and fast with some skill. He's also a smart kid.
Plans to play with the Indiana Ice next year and then go to Western Michigan.

He's a late bloomer. So time to develop is a good thing

1st overall pick in the USHL draft, for what its worth. Great size, could be a hidden gem.

Did anyone draft a player more off the radar than this guy? And why so early in the draft?

This kid...whoever he is...will have a lot of work to do next season...just to prove getting drafted at all was warranted.

And if Im not mistaken...he is still a year away from getting under Andy Murray's wings?

I think he's off to College next year to join Andy Murray.

More off the radar? Boston took a Russian sleeper that they had to input into the system today, hence the long delay at the end of the 6th.

Anton Blidh is Swedish but I think the delay was because Boston took a timeout. Whether that was to finalize their decision, or because they were working on a deal, I'm not sure.

I heard Stu talking about him and he said he's actually 6'3.5" and 195 lbs... so he's definitely a big boy.

Certainly one of those long shot picks but throw enough darts and some of them may find the bullseye.

after being initially mad about this pick, i read about him online and realized that he's the kind of player the Oilers continue to look for in the mid rounds, like Khaira 2.0 as Petro Points put it, so now i'm OK with it. boom or bust pick, but great payoff if he makes it.

I kind of like this pick, the central hockey scouting or whatever had him at 108 North American skater which doesn't seem like much, but midterm rank he was unranked.
Likely made huge strides in the past few months, hopefully he can continue to do so

Going to the same school as Michael McCarron, the Habs 1st rounder. Hopefully McCarron sticks around so he can help develop Muir's offense.
