A lot of NHL scouts are going to be kicking themselves 3-4 years from now, when Shea Theodore becomes a top pairing D-man or at worst a solid Top-4 guy. Granted, right now he’s a bit of a lanky kid but once he fills out, he’ll be more effective. I see a little bit of Ryan Suter in him but that’s probably a stretch. The more realistic comparable is probably Dan Hamhuis but I see his potential ending up somewhere in between.

NHL COMPARABLE: Dan Hamhuis +

UPSIDE: Top Pairing D-Man / Top 4 Two-Way D-man
