Monday, 06.02.2008 / 2:32 PM / 2008 NHL Draft
Florida Panthers
Leading up to the 2008 draft, Flordiapanthers.com will be highlighting some of the top prospects to look out for. Could the Panthers draft one of these players with their pick in the second round or might they move up to grab one of these top players to further bolster their system and hope they contribute to the big club one day?

Each week day, we'll take a look at three prospects and get Panthers Director of Amateur Scouting Scott Luce's opinion on each of them.

THE SKINNY

Ninth in scoring among OHL defensemen with 50 points (13 goals) and his nine power plays goals ranked him third on the Guelph Storm. Voted best OHL offensive defensiveman in the 2007-08 OHL Coaches Poll. Named alternate captain at 2008 OHL All-Star Classic. One of four draft eligible players to help Team Canada to gold medal at 2008 World Junior Championhips, and was named Top Defenseman at the tourney to became only fifth Canadian defenseman to earn the honor.

WHAT CENTRAL SCOUTING SAYS

A defenseman around which a team is going to build their next 10 years. One of the players most able to step up next season. Strengths are poise and defensive acumen – the ability to know when to jump up in a rush, the ability to know when to stay back, and when to join the rush late. Needs to work on pacing himself.

WHAT PANTHER SCOUT SCOTT LUCE SAYS

Close to being ready to play now. A work horse on the back end.
