NHL COMPARABLE: Chris Kelly

UPSIDE: 3rd / 4th Line Defensive Forward

One of the best hockey names in the draft. This guy is a really good skater and plays a hard, north-south game but to me he flags more as a depth forward on the bottom 2 lines than a top-6 guy. He could end up a valuable utility player that could slot in on the 2nd line if injuries occur. He’ll likely be picked as a late 2nd-early 3rd round pick but I think he’s got a pretty good shot at the NHL.
