2011 Draft Eligible Power Forwards

2011 DRAFT ELIGIBLE POWER FORWARDS

The early reports from the draft pool of the 2011 draft is that the first three rounds will be very deep.  It is going to cause some GMs to be reluctant to trade their second and third round picks.  The 2011 draft seems to be surprising deep with regard to both prototype power forwards and hybrid power forwards (forwards in the 6'2" 200 lb range but with a high degree of both skill and physicality).

            These prospects are not listed in a ranked order by me.

 Colin Jacobs C - Seattle Thunderbirds (WHL)

6' 2", 204 lb center for the Thunderbirds.  He is getting a reputation for driving the net. 

 

 Gabriel Landeskog, RW, Kitchener Rangers (OHL)

6'1" 200 lb.  He had great chemistry with Jeff Skinner last season; and plays a very physical game

 Sean Couturier, LW Drummondville QMJHL, CAN

6'3", 193 lbs.  Couturier has a tremendous combination of skills, including speed, strength, and toughness.  Courturier could well be one of the top three picks in the first round. 

 Brandon Saad,  LW   Saginaw (OHL)

6'2",  200 lbs.  Saad is that rare power forward who has high end scoring skills and a fierce competitive nature. 

 Seth Ambroz, LW Omaha (USHL)

6'3, 198 lbs.  Ambroz is a player who thrives on driving the net and is enthusiastically drops his gloves to protect teammates.  He is a player who never gives up on the play, according to reports.

 Tyler Biggs, USHL (USA)

6'3", 205 lbs.  Biggs' father played in the AHL and had a short stint in the NHL.  Biggs' father coached him.  Biggs is a battler who has the reputation for loving the battle in front of the net.  He is a player who gives 100% each shift.
