2010 NHL Draft 13th Pick: Phoenix Selects Brandon Gormley, Moncton Wildcats Defenseman

The other surprising freefall has ended with the 13th overall selection of Moncton Wildcats defenseman Brandon Gormley. Gormley was a key piece in the Moncton's QMJHL championship with his 17 points in 21 playoffs games. 

A few more thoughts from our New York Rangers site, Blueshirt Banter:

Brandon Gormley may not be flashy or excitable like Cam Fowler and Erik Gudbranson, but he is a steady defenseman that does not make many mistakes in his own zone. He is your steady blue-liner that you can always rely on to shutdown the opposition's top offensive threats. He is that player that when you put him on the ice, you know what you are getting and you do not have to worry about him out there. Because of this, I compare him to no other but the Rangers' Marc Staal.

The Phoenix Coyotes have a good defenseman here and they may have just gotten lucky with him falling so far.
