Jenkins rated 96th skater by ISS is "smart, two-way defenseman"

Bruce Bennett

The Carolina Hurricanes finished up their 2014 draft much like they started it, with the pick of a young defenseman.

At number 187, the Canes chose Kyle Jenkins, who currently plays for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.  He scored 7 goals and had 18 assists last season.

Mark Seidel's report calls him a" very smart defenseman" who "always makes the best play".  He does need to get bigger and stronger to further his development. He shows some good offensive flair.

Kyle plays with another Canes prospect, Tyler Ganly, and was matched up with him on the second pairing for the team most of the season.
