NHL Draft: Defenseman

Here are my top rated defenseman for this years draft.

I have Fabbro rated first.  There has been no other draft eligible defenseman have the impact he did in the BCHL.  It might be a bit high but I feel his offense is better than Juolevi’s and his defense is better than Sergachyov.  The concern is skating, which I think he can work on.   In my opinion you can make a case for anyone of those four as the top defenseman, it just depends on preference.

Here is my previous lists with scouting reports from around the interweb.

Canadian Junior A Defense

USHL Defense

QMJHL Defense

WHL Defense

OHL Defense

Sweden Defense

Czech Defense

Russian Defense

Europe Defense

Here are my seven late round sleepers.

1. Yegor Rykov – Russian two-way defender.
2. Jake Ryczek – Right hand d-man had solid point totals.
3. Brinson Pasichnuk – Played in AJHL plays physical and had over 1.25 PPG.
4. Tarmo Reunanen – Injured early in the season.  Was projected to go in the first round.  Last year he was on par with Juoveli in the Finnish junior league.
5. Filip Berglund – Impressive point totals.
6. Kristaps Zile – Latvian defenseman is tall needs to fill out.
7. Scott Perunovich – Tiny defenseman (5’8 – 5’9) but averaged 2.72 PPG.
