UPSIDE: Middle Pairing / Bottom Pairing D-man

Kylington is an intriguing prospect. There is a lot to like and there is also a lot to be wary of when you’re talking about this guy. He’s an excellent skater and pretty good puck mover. Defensively though, he needs a lot of work and I think that’s the main reason why he’s dropped so much over the past year. If he can shore up that part of his game significantly, the value is fantastic in the later part of the 1st round. I see him as a guy who likely tops out as a middle pairing guy but could end up anywhere between a #3 to a #6 on the depth chart.
