Carl Neill | D

So we have at least two captains on our team now. Neill and Brisebois. Sounds like Benning is gunning for a team full of leaders.

So how about all that talk of drafting from the Dub more...

I like this pick more than Stewart haha

Great story behind his game and looks like a committed guy to being better and making the NHL. I was also nervous when I saw he was a 2nd time eligable player, but with the late birthday, and his size to goal total ratio I don't mind this pick at all. Definitely added some points to J Roy's totals.

Hoping Neill follows in the steps of Grenier, Hutton, Corrado, and Forsling and surprises everyone.

Very impressed by Neill. Plays a style similar to a young Bieksa, just kinda fits in and finds ways to contribute whether a fight, nice O play, or big hit. Will definitely be a pro player one day. Surprisingly good hands for a Dman, good all around attributes.

If he was Brisboise age we would be freaking that he's the next Subban or something haha.

Solid pick though, smart positioning, good hands, quick release, big one timer. What else do you want?? Size?? oh ya he's got size.

5th round pick, 145th overall, from QMHJL

Neill

6'3

206lbs

Physical Player

5th round, 144th overall, from QMJHL

So does that meen that he is AHL eligible next season? Or I guess he could play another season in junior as an overager

The kid just turned 19. He'll be 19 the entire 2015-2016. If we were good enough he could qualify for the U20 worlds. How does that make him an overager? The kid gets drafted as a 19 year old with a birthdate in July and buddy^^^ thinks Neill's already an over aged junior.

You forgot one of his best assets.

He didn't think twice about ripping into the guy that suckered his team mate.

Wow he looks pretty solid in his highlights. Good mobility and that shot is really good.

Looks like Neill is wearing the C for Sherbrooke in preseason.

So far he has 1G 3A in 2GP.

I've never heard of this guy. Keep the information flowing please. He sounds like another super pick by Benning! When someone said he's the next Subban, does that mean he's a little fellow?
