I'm no hockey draft expert but it seems to be a very good pick. Besides the obvious of getting the 18th ranked prospect at 30, you've got to like the sound of his game. 6-4 215 lb. defensman that can move the puck out of his zone. Sign me up.
Going by all of the scouting reports, it sounds like he could possibly turn into a pretty solid defensive-defenseman. We already have our two offensive-defensemen in Tanger and Gogo, so it's good to see us go after a more physical stay-at-home defenseman for the future.
While I was hoping for Olsen to fall to us, only time will truly tell, but it looks like a pretty solid pick.
