With our final selection, Tampa Bay selects Tobias Geisser at 200th overall



Date of Birth: Feb 13th, 1999 (18)
Place of Birth: Sarnen, Switzerland
Ht: 6’4″ Wt: 201 lbs
Shoots: L
Position: D

With this year's draft, we felt like we covered a majority of our team's needs. So to conclude this year, we decided to choose lefty defenseman, Tobias Geisser. Tobias already has the build of an NHL defenseman, he is strong on the puck and can make a great first pass. In the next few years, we hope to see him transition into North American hockey, where his decision-making skills will be put to the test.

Draft completed for Philadelphia, pleased how it went, nice mix of prospects:
1st:#2 Nolan Patrick, C, 6'3", OHL
2nd:#44 Josh Norris, C, 6'1", USDP
3rd:#75 Max Gildon, D, 6'3", USDP
3rd:#81 Jack Studnicka, C, 6'1", OHL
4th:#106 Stuart Skinner, G, 6'4", WHL
4th:#107 MaCauley Carson, LW, 6'1", OHL
4th:#108 Denis Smirnov, LW, 5'10", NCAA
5th: #137 Pavel Shen, C, 6'1", MHL
6th: #167 Liam Hawel, C, 6'5", OHL
7th: #190 Calle Sjalin D, 6'1", Division1
7th: #199 Scooter Brickey D, 6'3", USHL
great pick, another personal favorite of mine.

Carson and Brickey are 2 of my biggest sleepers in this years draft.

Is everyone noticing how NOT crappy most of these late/7th rounders are as prospects? I still have a "short" list of over a dozens guys left, even after the most recent picks (lots of good ones), that I'd willingly trade for any of the last couple or so guys I picked. The "interesting" list goes far beyond that.

The word that describes this draft, for me, is quantity. There have been interesting players in every single round and some measure of regret is involved with every pick.

I don't remember the 2016 draft being like this after the 2nd.

Agreed. I also add a list of about a dozen of players as well which I would have considered great pickup last 7th rounder.

Let us know who is your guy at 67 when he gets picked, curious to know who it is? I felt it could Brickey, but #83 sounds good enough!

I second to this, the draft might have bit slow at times, but overall the participation and the pace was good. It was my first one and I had a lot of fun, first time I will be this knowledgable about the prospects pre-draft. Great job Cutter on the organization!

Why did you guys thought of the Sjalin pick, did anyone had him on his radar, I feel like it is exactly the type of obscure player you want in the 7th, might be nothing at all, but could be a big pay off.

With the 201st pick the NY islanders select from Stillwater High School C Noah Cates



"Skinny as a rake but a 6'1 frame to fill out. Captain of his team, was near a goal per game in high school and scored at a good clip in the USHL. Will play for the Duluth program next year, will have to fight for ice time but has the skill to win a spot."

With the 202nd pick, the Calgary Flames select, from Dubuque Fighting Saints of the USHL, center

Cole Guttman


Scouting report: A St. Cloud State commit, Guttman is a mature player on the ice as does the little things and has hockey smarts. He has a good stick and has a good shot that he can release without breaking stride. Solid even strength production, as a USHL rookie. Still has to put on weight in order to compete against bigger competition.

Comment: Even strength production caught my eye. It compares to some of the best USHL players in recent years and he did that as a rookie. Still a long way from the big show but I'll take a shot on that type of player any day in the 7th round.

Draft Recap

1st round, 17th overall - Jesper Boqvist, C, Brynäs IF, SHL
4th round, 110th overall - David Noël, D, Val-d'Or Foreurs, QMJHL
5th round, 141st overall - Emil Bemström, C, Leksands IF, SHL
6th round, 172nd overall - Daniil Tarasov, G, Tolpar Ufa, MHL
7th round, 202nd overall - Cole Guttman, C, Dubuque Fighting Saints, USHL

So that's it for me. Boom or bust type of draft, for me. I think every player has the potential to become a core player if they live up to their potential. Most still need plenty of seasoning but all have shown they could dominate in one form or another at lower levels.

Every pick was a center. Just worked out that way. Not worried about losing John Tavares at all. Not at all.

1st - Rob Thomas
2nd - Morgan Frost
3rd - Zach Gallant
5th - Jack Dugan
7th - Noah Cates

The thing is, there are so many kids showing good potential but so many won't even be drafted this year.

IceDaddy has been auto'd several times already and hasn't checked in since the 8th of May.
