2008 NHL Draft: Thomas McCollum
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

Set Guelph Storm single-season record for shutouts in a season (5) in 2006-07…Only three-time winner of the CHL Goaltender of the Week award in 2008…Represented Team USA at the 2007 IIHF World Under-18 Championship in Finland…Patterns his game after Roberto Luongo…

WHAT CENTRAL SCOUTING SAYS

Net position is second to none. Rarely has any holes and has a great butterfly. When he is challenging and at the top of his game he is very tough to beat. He is definitely one of those franchise type of goalies in the future. Team is very confident in front of him.

WHAT PANTHER SCOUT SCOTT LUCE SAYS

Slow start with a great second half. Has No. 1 NHL potential.
