2008 NHL Draft: Alex Pietrangelo
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

Seventh-leading scorer among OHL defenseman with 53 points (13 goals). Participated in OHL All-Star Classic and CHL Top Prospects Game in 2008. Represented Canada at the Ivan Hlinka Under-18 hockey tourney in the Czech Republic in 2007. His dad’s second cousin is former NHL goalie Frank Pietrangelo.

WHAT CENTRAL SCOUTING SAYS

Very poised on the ice. A tall player, still growing, who brings keen ability to know when to pass out of the zone or carry the puck out. Unflustered in the face of a hard forecheck.

WHAT PANTHER SCOUT SCOTT LUCE SAYS

Rebounded from slow start. Complete package of size and skill.
