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

Named to WHL’s Western Conference Second All-Star Team in 2008 after finishing second on his team in scoring among defenseman. Helped Team Canada win gold at 2008 World Junior Championships, represented Canada in the eight-game sweet of Russia in the Canada-Russia Super Series in 2007, and was member of gold-medal winning Team Canada in Under-18 World Championship in 2006. Scored four points in first round of WHL playoffs.

WHAT CENTRAL SCOUTING SAYS

A big strong defenseman who might compare with Ed Jovanovski. Has a tough edge and has the ability to, if caught up ice, work hard and get back in time to recover. Sometime defense partner of 6-7 draft prospect Tyler Myers.

WHAT PANTHER SCOUT SCOTT LUCE SAYS

Top end defensive prospect. Quietly effective shift in and shift out.
