2008 NHL Draft: Colby Robak
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


Helped Canada win gold medal at the Under-18 IIHF World Championships in April, 2008. Represented Manitoba at the Canada Winter Games in 2007, winning the silver medal. Was Brandon’s only 16-year-old rookie in 2006-07.

WHAT CENTRAL SCOUTING SAYS

A Smooth skating defenseman with the keen ability to skate the puck out of dander. Goes into scrums, comes up with the puck and almost effortly skates it up ice; combine that with a shrewd ability to look up-ice, head-man the puck and then join the rush from behind. Has a calm demeanor when he plays. Doesn’t get rattled very easily.

WHAT PANTHER SCOUT SCOTT LUCE SAYS

Fluid skater for a big prospect.  Good upside on projection.
