Physical Players in the 2012 Draft

Are there any players in the upcoming draft who have a physical side to them?

Landeskog is the epitome of the player I'm asking about. Obviously, players like him don't come around often, but even Couturier had over a hit per game this season. A number that could increase as his minutes increase...is there anyone similar to Landeskog/Couturier in that aspect?

Dumba is the only player in the top 10 that I know of, but admittedly, I don't know all that much. Anyone in the top 10, 15, 25, who is physical and also has good offensive upside? Even next years draft info would be very much useful.

From what I've heard, Thomas Wilson of Plymouth is a big body that likes to throw it around.

Brendan Gaunce is probably one of the best in top 10-20 range but overall I would say guys like Wilson and Thrower are probably the two of the most physical players in the entire draft and both are likely to go in the 1st round.

I would also like to add Stefan Matteau to the mix as well, big bodied that loves driving the net hard and very physical.
