I like the sounds of this pick. He played for the Kemptville 73's in the CCHL and is committed to the University of Maine this fall. He has good size at 6'3", 195 lbs and he appears to be an offensive defenseman.

I also liked this comment from the Kemptville GM:

“He’s the best defenseman in our league, by far. He’s like a man among boys out there,” said Kemptville coach and general


Pat Malloy. “He oozes with pro potential. His skill level is so high.”

Sounds like a good value pick in the 5th round.

The plus side with getting guys going to college is that you don't have to use up a contract spot on them until they are much older and you know more about them.

They aren't allowed to sign a pro contract while in college, they just remain your property as I understand it.
