Not really a signing but couple of kids with NHL HW potential got drafted.
Led the OHL in fights last season with 27. Only 17 and already 6 ft 3 in and 230lbs. Really hope this kid makes it to the AHL/NHL in the near future.
Is 18 and 6 ft 5 in but only 206lbs. He needs to get some more meat on his bones if he intends to tangle with AHL/NHL heavies. His fighting style reminds a lot of Matt Kassian.
Rangers have 2 HW prospects in thier system now.
Yotes also drafted a couple gritty players as well.
Detroit drafted Nedomlel. Physical D-man who is willing to drop em. He is also from Sweden (anyone really suprised lol). Wouldnt call him a "fighter" though.
Hopefully the Canucks can sign a legit heavy or a good light heavyweight in free agency. I'm doubtful that Rypien will be returning and would rather have someone other than Glass providing the toughness on the 4th line
unfortunately I think your correct, even if we picked up someone like Boulton I would be happy, I just wanna see someone who can hang with the heavies
If I had my way every team would have 2 heavies. Also noticing Boulton is getting very little love around here sadly. Dude should be one of the top sought after enforcers this offseason but it doesnt look promising. Maybe Gillis will suprise us with a Godard or Boulton signing.
