COMPARABLE : Jordie Benn
UPSIDE : Bottom Pairing Defensive D-Man
FLOOR : AHL Call-up


A Project. Michael Karow is a good skater and puck mover with ideal size. He has good anticipation and makes a good first pass and is a solid defender. My comparable for him is Jordie Benn as he’s the same kind d-man that you don’t really notice but gets the job done. I see Karow possibility developing into that kind of d-man if all goes well.

Karow is set to play for Boston College in the fall and I think he’ll need a good 3-4 years of development but could come out of it an unheralded but solid d-man, much like Jordie Benn.
