Draft This Man...



Erik Johnson, D
6'5, 227
Shoots Right
Bloomington, Minnesota, USA
Born 3/21/88
Eligible for the 2006 NHL Entry Draft

Scouting report:
Its fair to say he has a great blend of offensive and defensive abilities, said USA Hockeys senior director of player operations, Jim Johannson.

Hes strong in all facets of the game, Johannson said. He passes well, he shoots well, he sees the ice well and he plays in all situations. You cant really characterize him as offensive or defensive. Hes just an all-around good hockey player. [He has] size and strength, with a hockey sense and ice awareness."

Yeah he's likely to be a top 5-10 pick, unfortunately for the Kings and 20 or so other teams who won't have a shot at him.

The Kings really need to address their lack of defense in the system. They only have four North American defense prospects (Baier, TJ Fast, Meyers in college and McGinnis in the OHL).

Their only defense prospects in Manchester are Grebeshkov and Petiot, and most (if not, all) of the European prospects are a long shot.

Actually, Mormina is in Manchester as well. He's coming along fairly well for a rookie...

I know he's not technically a "prospect" anymore, but whatever happened to Zizka? Do the Kings still own his rights?

I believe he went back to Europe as an UFA. He now plays for Slava Praha HC in the Czech Republic.

Ho hum, so much for hoping to see the Kings draft him. Erik Johnson is now the #1 ranked North American prospect after his performance in the WJC. Looks like I wasn't the only one impressed by his play, heh.

Only way we draft him is if we trade up to grab him.
