I’m a huge fan of Samuel Girard and I love the way this kid moves the puck. It’s not like he’s got the ideal size that you’d be looking for in a defenseman but he makes up for it with smart plays and off the charts offensive abilities. I’d be pretty surprised if a team took him in the first round but if a team has multiple second round picks, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a team take a flyer on him. Could be an extremely high reward there. My comparable for him is Torey Krug though it’s far from certain if he’ll be able to reach that level…I’m pulling for him though.
