NHL COMPARABLE: Eric Desjardins

UPSIDE: Top Pairing D-Man

Whenever I see Ekblad play, that’s the guy that immediately comes to mind. Eric Desjardins had a much unheralded career in the NHL while being a solid top pairing guy for the majority of it with the Habs and Flyers. I see Ekblad having the same kind of impact in the NHL. I think those who believe he’ll be a franchise d-man are going to be disappointed.
