From Five For Howling:

Ranked 11th in the last ISS rankings, Mark Pysyk is a solid defenseman who could contribute to the big team sooner rather than later. While DMen typically take a little longer to develop, Pysyk has been a good player on a terrible team in the WHL the Oil Kings may not have played well, by Pysyk has eaten up minutes for them and been solid on the blueline. He's not the highest scoring guy, but plays an effective shutdown game and hits hard. He's only 18, but with another year in Junior to grow a little more he could see action with the Coyotes the year after. I'll get up more later today about the kid, but with the Coyotes needing more defensive prospects, they can't go wrong with Pysyk.

Learn more about Pysyk and why the Coyotes should take him next weekend at Five For Howling.

The next pick of the day, 14th overall, belongs to our St. Louis Blues bloggers at St. Louis Game Time.
