2007 Draft List - Angelo Esposito

by Blue Jackets Staff / Columbus Blue Jackets
NHL Central Scouting Rank: No. 8 North American Skater

Born: 2-20-1989
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 180 lbs
Position: Center
Shoots: Left
Last Team: Quebec Remparts (QMJHL)
Nickname: Espo

Central Scouting Report: A skilled forward with excellent skating ability... his top-end speed and mobility backs off defenders... sees the ice well and has the ability to make pin-point passes... not afraid to go to the net... needs to improve his physical presence and his play in traffic... needs to show more consistency.

2006-07 Season: Had 27-52-79 in 60 games with Quebec this season... participated in the 2007 CHL Top Prospects game... was the QMJHL Player of the Week on Nov. 16, after he had 4-7-11 in three games of the previous week.

What they're saying:
"Instead of looking at what he does right, (scouts) look hard for flaws. He's under a microscope and that's not always fair. A lot of clubs would love to bring Angelo Esposito into the fold - That hasn't changed." –  NHL Scout (Columbus Dispatch - 6-10-07)
