I know he's technically ranked there, but I'd bet an awful lot at team steps up in the first round. He's gonna be one of the top scorers in the OHL next year.

This is a non-existent issue that I continue to hear/read. His speed is above average, his skating is really quite strong.

Although in the WHL he really seems to try and push his offensive game too much at times and is not focused enough defensively. (Although his more safe play that he showed at the WJC shows he is capable defensively...just needs to pick his moment better).

Heiskanen has battled with injuries after world juniors so i can't say for sure is he overtaking Liljegren or not.
I think that defenceman who ( Heiskanen or Liljegren) has better tournament in U18 WJC's is top defenceman taken in this years draft.
But at least Grant McCagg is really high on Heiskanen and he has Heiskanen 3rd overall in his newest mock draft

Newest Grant McCagg's mock draft and TOP10 prospect ranking.
