Yes very common for some time now.

Yay we finally drafted a German Still lack a Swiss born player though.

Around 50 Million people in NA have German roots. So i think you have enough people with German quirks there.

As Reheged mentioned in the chart on the last page, this was a really solid pick.

Probably the pick i'm most excited about at this point due to the value of where he was selected vs his rough odd's of panning out.

Granted, our R on CHL dmen isn't fantastic....but it is 2x better then NHL draft order...so that's a pretty big plus. Most interesting part is he's not a shrimp, and he's not an overager. A lot of the times the best value picks our system picks out are either wee little guys or overagers, so i'd say even his favorable 48 ranking is probably low.

Excellent value.

Thanks for those vids. Looks to have good vision and passing - head's on a swivel. Knows when to sneak in on the RH side too.

A strong puck-mover with excellent two way potential. Exactly what teams want in the back end once they gain possession. Plays a strong first pass and can hit forwards tape-to-tape on the breakout. Needs to improve his defensive play and get quicker feet.
