Offensively he's very good, but not flashy.

Utilizes pinpoint accurate snap shots from far out, aiming for areas where teammates can get deflections. His speed isn't what defines his skating, though, it's his elite edge work. "Lo and behold, he gets sent back to junior and it certainly didn't hurt him. Drysdale, listed at 5-foot-11, 170 pounds, was ranked 13th among OHL defensemen with 47 points (9-38-47) in 49 games.

'He's going to be a top-pair offensive NHL d-man who can run a power play,' a scout said.".

Pounces on loose pucks/rebound and is quick and hard to catch around the crease and slot.

He says he models his game after Morgan Rielly, another model of a modern defender who is able to drive play.

Jumps down in the blink of an eye for deep pinches and then easily gets back into defensive position again. To prove a point, here’s where he’s ranked by various scouts: Like I said, it’s not like Drysdale is perfect. Offensive minded, but account- able in his backchecking and positioning in own zone. For me, it's something that I've always been confident with and I want to continue to be that way so just working with skating coaches for the past couple summers and stuff like that.

He racks up assists with a snapshot that seems to know exactly where his teammate’s stick is waiting for the tip or deflection.

The Athletic's Scott Wheeler and Corey Pronman had Drysdale ranked slightly lower.

But Jamie is relatively similar. At 5-foot-11, he's not a big pro-style blueliner, but he's shown to be a capable defender who uses his smarts, body positioning, gap control and stick deployment to his advantage.

I don't think Jamie is far off from being an NHL player, but he wants to go in and play important minutes. Superb skater links together world class moves in all four directions.

His work with Team Canada — as a 16-year-old with the U18 team and the following year with the U20 group — has most agreeing the Drysdale is the best defender available in a deep draft year. Who could the Ducks select at 27th overall? I see a player who has command and confidence in every situation.

The Red Wings finished 29th in power-play percentage last year (14.9%), and they haven’t been in the top half of the league since 2016.

Jamie Drysdale served as the alternate captain to the 2019-20 Erie Otters, where he was nearly a point per game player.

4. "The Yzermans and (Nicklas) Lidstroms are names you can't miss," Drysdale said. Wanna blog? © NHL 2020.

Sixth overall feels so early for a defender that isn’t much of a goal-scorer himself.

That eliminates consensus top pick Alexis Lafrenière and most likely takes forwards Quinton Byfield and Tim Stützle out of contention as well.

I think they're definitely special players that have obviously made names for themselves and help make a name for the organization. I can bring the quick transition game. Had a somewhat disappointing season, never really getting quality minutes playing in the senior league, and by late in the season didn't look as eager.".

Button was impressed with Drysdale's well-rounded play at such a young age. One thing interesting about my family is...My brother is the smartest person I know. His hands and heads-up vision also help him navigate in all three zones with the puck, run a power play and hit seams when they open up. He's one of the more effortless skaters the draft has produced in recent memory, with top-tier four-way mobility that helps him close gaps, pivot away from pressure, weave through traffic, play on his heels when he has to and create lanes for his passes or shots. "Watch out when he gets those first three strides going," says Hartsburg, the son of former NHL captain Craig Hartsburg of the Minnesota North Stars and a seventh-round pick by the New Jersey Devils in 1999 after playing four years at Colorado College. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a player skate backwards as confidently as Drysdale. In this year's 5-0 semifinal victory against defending champion Finland at the world championships in the Czech Republic, Drysdale, a late replacement for Colorado first-round pick Bowen Byram, scored a goal in 20:28 of ice time.

"I think it's just important to do what you can, everything you can. Even in the Ontario League so it's just finding the little things that can put you overboard and just help you have that little edge. "I think with skating, it's something you can always get better at," Drysdale said. All Rights Reserved. The Ducks have two first round picks and even though the second pick is late in the round, a lot of good forwards are still going to be available. I think like everyone else said, it's important that everyone just stays home and stays safe as well as making sure they're staying in shape and doing everything they can to just at the kind of level of hockey they are, whether it's shooting pucks or working out. The Otters had claimed a playoff berth as the eighth team in the Ontario Hockey League's Western Conference with 63 points (26-26-4-7).
