Come on Kings, here's our next Willie Mitchell
His potential to play 1st pair is the best among all the D out there. It’s his puck separation that gets him there, as opposed to Heidmann.
Heidmann? First pair in the DEL?
Exciting talent, but Byram is obviously more likely 1st pair.
Not only don’t I know, I’m having a hard time getting autocorrect to come up with anything even close.
Looking good. Great Britain isn't exactly the kind o opposition he'd face in the NHL, but aside of his goal I overall like his offensive game.
He doesn't appear to get overly nervous when under pressure. He's calm enougth on the offensive zone to not just fire it at the net to get rid of the puck. Has the balls to carry the puck and waits for his chance to make a good play.
For a shutdown defenseman his offensive game looks to be solid actually.
Is this another Brandon Carlo?
His offensive abilities are light years ahead
With the 20th pick in the 2019 NHL Draft, the New York...
More Jaccob Slavin
I’m liking the idea more and more of the Stars picking this guy at 18. Seems to have an very high floor and lots of untapped potential as well. Could end up being a future partner for Heiskanen.
He is having another great game vs. Denmark right now.
Best German defender in the tournament so far. Defense is a weakness for this team, but still not too shabby for a kid in his draft year.
Starting to think this guy doesn’t make it outside of the top 12 picks.
Seems to be a growing opinion that he is a riser .. not sure about top 12 but ahead of where most lists have him now for sure
With him being 6’4’’ and right handed I would be shocked if he makes it past 15. And if reports of his solid defensive game, good skating, and offensive upside are true, then I’m not sure why he wouldn’t go top 10-12.
Calling it, going #9 to the Ducks
If he keeps playing this well at the WC, he will be a risers forsure. He sort of grew into his role in the DEL this year, but then played all the playoff games on the way to a title. And now he is standing out, in mostly a good way, in a senior level international event, which is hard for young players to do, even when the opposition is GB and Denmark. He captained the u-20 team to promotion this year as well.
The biggest riser IMO.
His size and tools will make sure he’s an NHL player no matter what, and he has the upside to be a top pairing defender. He’s going to be a good one, but whoever drafts him has to be patient. I think he’s going to be one of those players who needs atleast a couple years In the AHL.
He'll be the biggest riser on draft day. I think he will go somewhere between 7 and 11.
noooo, I wanted him at 18
So is he the 1st D off the board after Byram? Ahead of Broberg, York, Soderstrom ..
all the D are extremely volatile in the first round.
