Ryan Lindgren is one of my favourite prospects in this year’s draft. There is something to be said for a guy who always seemingly makes the safe and smart play and rarely gets caught making a mistake. He makes a good outlet pass and makes smart decisions with the puck. He’s not the strongest skater but I believe that can be improved. The reason why I have him so highly is because I believe he’s at the very beginning of his development and will improve quite a bit in the coming years.

I think Lindgren could surprise though I don’t expect any teams to select him in the first round. He’ll probably be a 2nd round pick but I think he’ll be a very good one.
