Barrie Colts defenseman Aaron Ekblad believes it isn't easy finding a player who takes great pride in a strong defensive game in this day and age of high-octane offense.
So he wants NHL scouts and general managers to know not only can he bring that style of game, but his versatility on the back end has also enabled him to expand his hockey repertoire.
"I think GMs are also looking for a guy who will jump into the rush and score goals, so versatility is a big thing," Ekblad told NHL.com. "I'm sure that's what they look for; every so often you have to throw your weight around too. But obviously being steady and knowing your position is important."
