I like this pick.

Talent Analysis

Iverson is a big-bodied forward with 200-foot skills. Will be given every opportunity to become a reliable scorer as junior career progresses. Physically imposing. Battles aggressively for puck. Not a guy who gets “pushed around”.

Keegan Iverson’s style is reminiscent of Dustin Brown of the Los Angeles Kings. This isn’t a talent comparison, but just one based on style. In terms of potential there is an outside chance he could become a second line centre in the NHL, but his potential is more likely as an effective third line player going forward.

Looks to be a safer pick than Duclair/Buch. How's his defense?

Also, is there any truth to the rumor that this kid hates to practice?

Sounds like they got him hoping he'll wind up a quality role player on the bottom-6. They are trying to restock the system with a lower risk player.

He has the basic skill set to perform a Pouliot type role. Battle on the boards, get to the net.

To be honest, I prefer the high risk, high return picks like The Duke and The Butcher, but I guess they felt they wanted a safer guy, particularly after a super-risky pick in the second round.

Im not sure he is safer...

Developing into a bigger power forward type is a tall order for anyone.

Duclair looks like he could be a steal. He was having a monster season befor ethe concussion. I also like the high risk/high reward picks BUT i like this pick as well. This kid is big likes to hit and can score to boot
