PROJECTION First Round
When looking for a perfect, modern day game style defenseman Jamie Drysdale is your guy. His skating is excellent for a variety of reasons. He can walk the blueline with some fancy footwork, and shoot up the ice at a high top speed while dipping and dodging pressure. In the offensive zone he uses his footwork to open up passing lanes and play a possession game. Drysdale is also a stand out puck rusher due to his skating. Mobility is the name of the game for Drysdale. Defensively he uses his mobility to get into lanes and cut off play. A physical presence isn’t there for him, but he’s fairly responsible and puts in good effort considering his offensive style. Otherwise, the former Toronto Marlboro makes a lot happen with his general awareness of the ice. On the rush, he thrives on making smart passes to give his teammates time and space to set up play. He can thread passes to teammates that are hard to see from the TV feed, let alone his on-ice view.
