The draft is loaded with defensive talent in particular.
Cody Ceci, D, Ottawa (OHL): At 6-2 and 205 pounds he's an offensive dynamo, but not the most physical player. Compares to Brent Seabrook of the Blackhawks.
Mathew Dumba, D, Red Deer (WHL): Hits, fights, shoots the puck a ton. At 6-0, 184, he compares to Montreal's P.K. Subban.
Radek Faksa, C, Kitchener (OHL): A two-way forward from the Czech Republic, he has good size (6-3, 200) and has lived away from his home country since age 11. Compares to Logan Couture of the Sharks.
Griffin Reinhart, D, Edmonton (WHL): If he adds more physicality, he'll be the total package. He's 6-4 and 205 pounds and compares to San Jose's Brent Burns.
Morgan Rielly, D, Moose Jaw (WHL): Coming off knee injury, but a superb skater at 6-1, 200. Compares to Kris Letang of Pittsburgh.
Teuvo Teravainen, C, Jokerit (Finland): Very skilled, a bit undersized at 5-11, 165. Compares to former Soviet star Igor Larionov.
Jacob Trouba, D, U.S. Under-18 team. Hard hitter at 6-2, 187. Has a big shot. Compares to Adam Foote, who had a 19-year NHL career.
