  1. TYLER MYERS | #57 D | 6' 8" | 229 lb | Age: 29 | Vancouver Canucks Tyler Myers Born: February 1, 1990 Birthplace: Houston, TX, USA Shoots: Right Draft: 2008 BUF, 1st rd, 12th pk (12th overall)
  2. Nikita Tryamkin Scouting Report From one of the smallest players in the draft class to one of the biggest. He was 4th among regular defensemen on his team in ice time, with 16:30 per game on Yekaterinburg at just 19. Despite his size he can actually move pretty well. He's not afraid to play the body at all and has a cannon for a slapshot. As with any defender at this age he still needs refinement in his positioning and decision making, but he has a really high upside. Played internationally for the first time ever at WJC and was the Russian's second best defender after former first rounder Nikita Zadorov. Vancouver Canucks ‏@VanCanucks 18m Tryamkin said he wants to be "the next big Russian in Vancouver." He's got two years left on his KHL contract. #NHLDraft First Russian selected by Vancouver since Ilya Kablukov in 2007.
  3. Defenceman | 6'3" | 198 lbs Shoots | Left Born | 1998-05-05 Draft | 2016 Round 1 #5 Overall by Vancouver Canucks Olli Juolevi Scouting Report:
  4. D | 6'2" | 192 lbs Shoots | Right Born | 2001-11-07 Draft | 2020 Round 7 #191 Overall by Vancouver Canucks Ranked #95 by ELITEPROSPECTS.COM Ranked #231 by FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS Ranked #42 by TSN/CRAIG BUTTON Ranked #44 by NHL CENTRAL SCOUTING (EU Skaters) There is so much more to Persson's game offensively than his point totals would indicate. A big part of his success comes from his abilities as a distributor. He makes good calls on when to join the rush or play with a more passive posture. Persson maintains a high work rate, with active feet and smart skating patterns, ensuring he's always open to receive a pass. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide From Blazers' GM: “We are excited to be able to add a player like Viktor to our organization,” said General Manager Matt Bardsley. “He is a mobile defenseman who is willing to lead or join the rush and brings the qualities we look for in a Kamloops Blazers defenseman.” “He has good offensive upside while providing a steady presence in his own end,” Bardsley continued. “We feel with his age and experience that he will be able to contribute right away.” From the CHL Import Draft: “I talked to the coaches and it sounds really good, just how they see the game,” said Persson, who admires the skills of Swedish defenceman John Klingberg, who plays for the Dallas Stars. “They seem to have really good development and focus on the players. Development is No. 1 and I’ve also heard great things about the organization.” “I’m a big guy, I like to play physical, pretty fast, I would say, and I like to join the offensive rush,” Persson said. “I’m excited to come over and show what I’ve got.”

  6. Drafted in the 2nd round, 37th overall. Young kid who has the size and some room to grow. Clocking in at a healthy 201 pounds, I'm excited to welcome Jett to the Nucks! Loved this kid in the pre-draft interviews. Fun fact: His Chinese name means Leader on top of the hill , or something along those lines. Correct me if I'm mistaken on that. I think Sid summed the kid up pretty well:
  8. Scouting: Our first D in the draft. The kid comes in at the Pettersen class weight and comes in an inch higher than Subban. I hear the knock on the kid is consistency.
  9. Oscar Fantenberg | #5 D | 6' 0" | 206 lb | Vancouver Canucks Born: October 7, 1991 Birthplace: Ljunby, SWE Shoots: Left
  10. D | 6'1" | 170 lbs Shoots | Left Born | 2002-04-12 Draft | 2020 Round 5 #144 Overall by Vancouver Canucks Last Word On Hockey: Skating Truscott is a very good skater and he uses this to be effective in both ends of the ice. He has a good first step and strong acceleration in both directions. His top-end speed is also well above average. The strong backwards skating is combined with very good lateral agility and helps Truscott to defend against the rush. He is difficult to beat in one-on-one situations. His edgework and pivots are also very good and allow Truscott to change directions or transition from offence to defence (and vice-versa) with ease. Truscott could stand to get stronger in his lower body. This would improve his balance. It would also make him stronger in battles on the boards and in front of the net. Offensive Game Truscott pairs his skating with good stickhandling ability. He is able to retrieve pucks in his own zone and avoid the forecheck before passing the puck up the ice. He is also able to carry the puck through the neutral zone and create effective zone entries. However, this is something he does not do a lot of, as he prefers not to gamble unless an excellent opportunity presents itself. Truscott is not the most creative player but he makes safe and smart plays to keep the puck moving in the offensive zone. He won’t hold on to the puck for long, preferring to get it to an open teammate. He also does a good job of picking his spots and pinching in to keep the puck in the offensive zone. Truscott also has a decent shot from the point. It is not overpowering, but he does a good job of getting it on the net. Truscott uses his lateral mobility to walk the line and open up shooting lanes. He is effective with his one-timer from the point as well as sneaking down to the circle and taking a wrist shot. As he continues to get stronger, his shot may become even harder and give goalies more issues. Defensive Game Truscott uses his strong skating to defend in his own end of the rink. His backwards and lateral mobility gives him good gap control and he is tough to beat on the rush. He funnels attackers to the outside and away from prime shooting areas. An active stick helps him to stick check opponents and take the puck away. He also has good positioning away from the puck, cutting down passing and shooting lanes. Truscott’s ability to move the puck quickly out of the defensive zone also helps to reduce the other team’s possession and zone time, and this helps his defensive game. He could stand to be stronger and more physical as he will need to improve this area of his game to play at the pro level. EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide Truscott uses great edge work and mobility to find great passing options and exits from his own end of the ice. One can take solace in the fact that Truscott is a technically skilled passer who can thread the needle in all three zones -- even if he doesn't leverage that often enough to be an impact player, proof of concept exists.
  11. D | 6'4" | 190 lbs Shoots | Left Born | 2002-04-19 Draft | 2020 Round 3 #82 Overall by Vancouver Canucks The Draft Analyst: A no-nonsense puck mover who apparently has played more error-free games than any draft-eligible defenseman I’ve watched this season, Jurmo has to be considered one of Europe’s top two-way rearguards. He plays for a superpower in Jokerit, which relies on him to eat big minutes, play on special teams, and match up against opposing top lines. Jurmo has everything you would want in a potential top-pairing defenseman. He is an effortless skater with a long, clean stride , and he doesn’t buckle under the first sign of pressure. When it comes to the breakout, Jurmo utilizes quick thinking and a series of deceptive moves to either peel away from a forechecker or trap him with a bank pass. At 6-foot-3, 190 pounds, Jurmo can be an intimidating presence as he powers through the zone at top speed. His decision making with the puck is more clean than it is creative, but he has excellent vision and will delay in the offensive zone to open up a line for either a hard shot or an on-the-tape seam pass. And good luck trying to dance around him in a one-on-one scenario — Jurmo closes on rushing forwards in a hurry and will neutralize an entry attempt with either a strong body check or well-timed stick-on-puck. “Jurmo loves to take the puck from his own end and carry it all the way to the other end. And because of his puck-handling skills and skating ability, he can often be successful at that. But sometimes, he loves carrying the puck way too much and doesn’t even consider other options. He tries to force himself through traffic and if that fails, that usually means a breakaway or an odd-man rush against. He is capable of making good breakout passes, so it’s just a matter of making better decisions with the puck.” – Jokke Nevalainen, Dobber Prospects “Jurmo is now my top European defenceman and the more I watch him, the more I’m convinced he is a first-round talent. I believe he has top-pairing potential based on his skating ability and his offensive instincts. There is refining and developing to be done, but the raw upside warrants this ranking. Jurmo reminds me a lot of fellow Finn Rasmus Ristolainen, who went eighth overall in 2013, but Jurmo hasn’t gotten as much exposure to date. He is still very underrated and could be labelled a sleeper based on other rankings and mock drafts. Jurmo is often labelled a project — thus the conservative rankings — but I’m ready to call him the real deal.” – Larry Fisher, The Hockey Writers Last Word On Sports: Jurmo combines his skating with effective puck-handling skills. He can avoid forecheckers when retrieving loose pucks and make a quick move to get past them and start the transition game. From there, Jurmo can either rush the puck up the ice or make a smart pass to a forward to lead the rush. His stickhandling and skating allow him to avoid defenders and make successful zone entries. He can quarterback the play from the point, finding passing lanes and exploiting them to set up teammates. His movement in the offensive zone creates opportunities and he can feather passes through tight areas. He also has excellent vision and almost always makes the smart pass. Jurmo's projectable 6-foot-4 frame and smooth-skating lend itself to covering large swaths of ice and carrying the puck from one zone to the next sometimes effortlessly. His speed makes him one of the best puck-rushers in the Finnish U20 league. He accelerates well when he's already in motion and is a deceptive skater in the neutral zone with crossovers and changes of pace. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide
  12. Jordie Benn | #4 D | 6' 2" | 199 lb | Vancouver Canucks Born: July 26, 1987 Birthplace: Victoria, BC, CAN Shoots: Left
  13. The Canucks newest signing from today, an overage defenseman out of Windsor. His offensive numbers aren't dazzling for his age but by all reports he sounds like a mobile player who can move the puck well and you'd have to think there's a lot to his game we don't know about if the Canucks were willing to offer him an ELC. Plus, Windsor hosts the Memorial Cup this season so he'll gain some valuable experience there and we'll all get a chance to see him play which is nice. There should be a lot of competition for spots on defense in Utica next season, as Chatfield will be up against guys like Brisebois, Neill, and Olson who could all potentially turn pro.
