2010 NHL Draft Profile: Ryan Johansen
The final prospect profile in advance of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft is on Byrnas Jr. winger Johan Larsson. He's a hard worker and defensively responsible who has got a lot of attention for his World U-18 performance. Perhaps it is enough to push him higher into the second round or better?
Today's draft profile focuses on Portland Winterhawk left winger Brad Ross. He's seen as an agitator with some offensive upside; and as a result, his draft stock has risen - perhaps enough to go earlier than 38th overall at the 2010 NHL Draft.
Draft profiles continue with Soo Greyhounds defenseman Brock Beukeboom. This profile notes that he can be physical and he can be a two-way defenseman, but he needs more experience and consistency at the position itself.
