DAY 16 SELECTIONS

80TH OVERALL - The New York Rangers select powerful defenseman Michael Brodzinski from the Muskegon Lumberjacks of the USHL

HW Emilie's Take:

I like his size and his skating ability. At 6-0, 188lbs his got a good frame and he’s still growing. He’ll take some time to adjust to the speed of the NHL game, but he is quick for his size and has a hard shot… He’s also got plenty of time to mature.

81ST OVERALL - The Calgary Flames select right-winger Alex Henriksson of the SEL.

General Manager niemonster3:

Alex is a tall thin wing who is still not that strong on his feet for his size, but showed at the Ivan Hlinka tourney that he was a true player. Competitive, and will crash the front go into the corners and dirty areas and will be the first one back on dee. Shows a willingness to block shots back there too. He is a very good skater with offensive smarts, hands, touch, and a sniper’s shot. Handles the puck well at top speed and can beat defenders one on one. Has a quick shot and plenty of upside.

82ND OVERALL - The Toronto Maple leafs select goaltender Spencer Martin from the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL.

General Manager Corporal_Klinger:

He’s big and agile, covering the net well even when playing the butterfly style. Very skilled at playing the puck as well. He still needs to work on his consistency, but managed to carry a low-scoring Steelheads team to the playoffs this season. (this ability is a must in Toronto) He’s still young with plenty of time to develop, and has a ton of upside with the potential to be a bona-fide NHL starter one day.

83RD OVERALL - The St. Louis Blues select defenseman Will Butcher from the US U-17/NCAA.

General Manager mightymikeD:

In making my Draft selections, I like to brainstorm with my Head Coach. After all, Ken is the man responsible for turning these young prospects into the next Barret Jackman or Roman Polak. He recently asked me who I was thinking of taking in the 3rd Round. I mused for a while and said “I’m looking at a bunch of guys.. how about Will Butcher?”
Ken jumped up (ok, slowly levered himself upright using a winch) and shook my hand. “Perfect!” he yelled, spraying me with with half-chewed Imo’s Pizza, “That’s exactly the skill set that this team has been missing! Get him right now!”
Well, after that sort of ringing endorsement (and once I’d used some Industrial De-Greaser to clean my hands) I duly picked the young US D-Man,who shone in the Worlds and is headed for the University of Denver.
After I did, I got a voicemail from Ken.:
“So glad that we’re getting a guy who can cut steaks. So many tasty, tasty snacks just hanging off players and no way of harvesting the meaty joy. By the way what is this guy who will butcher called?”

84TH OVERALL - The Washington Capitals select power forward Nicholas Baptiste from the Sudbury Wolves of the OHL.

HW danccchan's Take:

Started the season a bit slow and looking like your average bottom six checker but started to pick up his offense and showed he can play with talented players and produce at the U-18 tournament.

85TH OVERALL - The Vancouver Canucks select left-winger Nick Moutrey.

General Manager danccchan:

The Canucks don’t mind adding a bit more size to their forward group. Moutrey isn’t a player to knock players’ heads off but he’ll play the grind while showing he has some offensive potential.

86TH OVERALL - The Montreal Canadiens select defenseman Niklas Hansson from Rögle of the Allsvenskan.

The Canadiens have selected safe players with Lazar, Hartman, Mueller and Downing but now goes for a home-run pick with Niklas Hansson, who has the ability to create offense from the blueline with good mobility and some slick play.

87TH OVERALL - The Anaheim Ducks select giant, husky defenseman Jonathan-Ismael Diaby from the Victoriaville Tigres of the QMJHL.

Ever since the departure of super-duo Scott Neidermayer and Chris Pronger from the Anaheim lineup, the defense has never been quite the same. Bob Murray has tried for years to trade for hulking defensemen who could eat up the minutes, boast a thundering slapshot, and most importantly would play the game with such an intense edge that forwards would start shaking as they approached the blueline.

After failed efforts from Ryan Whitney, Kurtis Foster, and Andy Sutton, the Ducks seem to have found a semi-decent guy in Bryan Allen, however he too is no Chris Pronger.

This is the role Jonathan Diaby will step into. His early scouting reports all focus on one aspect: he’s big, he’s tough, and he plays with a mean snarl to his game. Diaby’s unafraid to drop the gloves to protect his teammates, and punishes forwards who come at him, especially along the boards. He’s a good skater as well with great top speed, something Pronger never had. His shot is also up to snuff, and he led all Victoriaville defensemen last season with 26 points and a plus-10 rating.

Diaby will be a project defenseman who has a lot of work to be done before he sees the big leagues but that’s fine. A big man like him will need time to mature and figure out the defensive game as well as work on the finer points of his skating. However Anaheim’s defense is stocked with young prospects who are great on their offensive game but not so much on pure defense. Diaby will change that as well as give the size and toughness of a big man to a team whose blueline has missed it dearly for a few years now.
