The Flames hold four picks in the 2018 NHL Draft: 105, 108, 167 and 198. With this in mind, CalgaryFlames.com's Torie Peterson has profiled six defencemen who may be available in the back-half of the draft and could end up being potential diamonds in the rough:
Egor Zamula - Calgary Hitmen - 2 goals, 16 assists, 18 points in 69 games
There's plenty of potential in Zamula's game. The blueliner is an excellent skater, is rarely caught out of position, handles the puck with ease, and can work a powerplay. He isn't overly physical but will engage when needed. He also has a 6-foot-3 frame to grow into as he continues to build up his strength.
