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.

WHAT CENTRAL SCOUTING SAYS

Big, burly defenseman who’s a good, strong skater. Runs power-play from the top of the umbrella and has a heavy shot. Self-assured. A boy in a man’s body and very strong. Has all the tools – size, skill, physical presence and charisma.

WHAT PANTHER SCOUT SCOTT LUCE SAYS


Emerged from nowhere. Loads of potential with size, speed and skill.
