20 y/o defender under 0.5 points/game in a weak league? Heading to a really crappy college program at Penn State?

First reaction is that this one looks like a lemon.

Now this is optimism.

I can't find anything on this guy. Even with Hutton, there were articles on him.

He's committed to Penn State University next season.

No absolutely nothing about him, nor do I think he'll ever pan out.

But we also knew nothing about Tanev or Lack.

Terrible pick. Not only do his stats suck, but he has a really boring name as well.

Not liking this pick. Who have we taken from the AJHL in the past?

Okay where did the Mike Gillis imposter go, you know the guy who netted us Bo, Hunter and Subban?

Would have been perfect if they drafted Jackson Houck at 85 but now the real Mike Gillis has appeared again.

Oh well it must have struck midnight somewhere.

Have you forgotten the infamous Mason Raymond?

Would have liked Kyle Burroughs or Arvidsson here.

Thanks guys. Raymond eh? Not a whole lot of history to go back on, then, with that league, and even he lit it up as a 19 year old. Seems like MG throwing his scout a bone here.

Maybe he can really throw 'em and he's an Evan Fuller/Sawyer Hannay type pick...that's about all I can come up with.11 points as a 20 y/o in a second tier Jr league does'nt exactly scream potential.
This has Ron Delorme written all over it.

This is really the only pick where I was completely scratching my head. All the other picks were totally fine.
