LOVE this, Jim having a solid 2nd round. Plus, now we have 2 potential draftees to root for in the wjc for canada!

Another first round talent, this is the best draft so far for Benning.  He's rounding out a solid forward class.  Now follow up with some swift speed from the back end.

picture alone speaks words of volume the type of game he will play.

 

Love this pick.  we are getting skilled with Elias Pettersson, Jonathan Dahlen, Nikolay Goldobin etc, and not backing that talent up with gritty sandpaper skilled guys like Lind and Gadjovich to provide presence and in front of the net grit.

GADJOVICH LED THE ATTACK AND FINISHED THIRD IN THE OHL WITH 46 GOALS IN 2016-17 – HIS THIRD SEASON WITH THE CLUB – WHILE PRODUCING AT MORE THAN A POINT-PER-GAME PACE (46-28—74 IN 60 GP). HE ADDED 4-3—7 IN 17 PLAYOFF CONTESTS BEFORE OWEN SOUND FELL TO EVENTUAL LEAGUE CHAMPION ERIE IN THE THIRD ROUND. 

• GADJOVICH, A PRODUCT OF THE WHITBY WILDCATS MINOR HOCKEY SYSTEM, SKATED WITH TEAM OHMA WHITE (1-3—4 IN 5 GP) AS THEY WENT ON TO CAPTURE THE OHL GOLD CUP CHAMPIONSHIP IN 2014. 

• LISTS FORMER NHL FORWARD MATS SUNDIN AS HIS CHILDHOOD HOCKEY IDOL. 

COMPARES HIS STYLE OF PLAY TO BRUINS FORWARD DAVID BACKES.

The knock on him is his passing. Kind of like Virtanen without the elite skating.

I still think it's a terrific pick though. Very high ceiling, and can still make it as a grinder

He was a goal per game for the last 40ish games of the season?! That's cray cray.

Really excited about this pick, hopefully he can work on his skating.  Most goals by a draft eligible player in the OHL.  Say his ceiling is Jeff Carter

Except he's a team first guy and a leader

Intangibles are off the charts. He competes really hard. No doubt there.

Inflated stats as he rides shotgun with Nick Suzuki but still love this pick at this spot cuz he does have skill and points aside is a worthwhile pick here!

Big, strong dude. He'll have some work to do and I don't like to hear about his consistency issues, but hopefully it turns into something.

 

Checking out his (apparently brand new) twitter account, you can see from his profile pic he's definitely got a bit of his man strength already:

Pretty muscular and good size already from that photo.

Announcers mentioned a Jamie McGinn comparison.   Let's hope he can exceed that offensively. 

 

Welcome to the franchise Jonah.

I agree that I like this pick. Would have been a perfect draft (so far) if Benning had taken Glass, But the combo of Pettersson, Lind and Gadjovich looks good overall.
