Leading up to the 2008 draft, Flordiapanthers.com will be highlighting some of the top prospects to look out for. Could the Panthers draft one of these players with their pick in the second round or might they move up to grab one of these top players to further bolster their system and hope they contribute to the big club one day?


Each week day, we'll take a look at three prospects and get Panthers Director of Amateur Scouting Scott Luce's opinion on each of them.

THE SKINNY

Named QMJHL All-Rookie Team in 2007 after leading all rookies with a 2.81 goals against. Participated in 2007 CHL Top Prospects Games and represented Canada in 2007 Under-18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament. Back-up to Los Angeles’ 2006 first-round draft pick Jonathan Bernier in his rookie season, winning 23 games to help team compete for Memorial Cup.

WHAT CENTRAL SCOUTING SAYS

Calm and confident. Not flashy, but positioning and movements are excellent. Coach would feel confident having him in net. Big upside and very big even when in butterfly. Good glove hand and rebound control.

WHAT PANTHER SCOUT SCOTT LUCE SAYS

Playing behind Bernier was tough on him mentally. Will get a chance to shine next season.
