GP: 70 G: 7 A: 24 PTS: 31 PIM: 87Overview:
Nick Ross is the 18th highest ranked skater in North America according to Central Scouting, as well as the sixth highest defenseman. He is viewed as a playmaking defenseman that also possesses good size. His strengths include reading the ice, as well as his ability to deliver a big hit.
Although he has good speed and an ability to join the rush, Ross could play with a higher sense of urgency in his game.
Ross just completed his third year in the WHL with the Pats; was selected as one of 40 draft-eligible players to play in the 2007 CHL Top Prospects Game; finished third among all 16-year-old WHL defensemen in scoring with seven goals and 23 points in 62 games for the Pats in 2005-06; and played for Team Pacific at the 2006 Under-17 Junior World Cup.The Flyers say…
“Nick Ross is a two-way, mobile defenseman. He can move the puck, make a play, and give you some time on the power play. He competes hard, and has some bite in his game.”– Director of Hockey Operations Chris PryorScouting Video:700K Up next:
