NHL COMPARABLE: Jordan Nolan

UPSIDE: 3rd / 4th Line Power Forward

To me Paul Bittner is your prototypical 3rd line, big power winger. I don’t think his skills will translate into a top-6 forward but his floor is relatively high in the sense that’s a pretty safe bet to make an NHL roster at some point. At this point in the draft, picking a guy who has a pretty good shot at the NHL that can skate with that size is good value.
