Joey Hishon was ranked 46th by TSN and was the 55th ranked North American skater heading into this draft but the Colorado Avalanche feel strongly about Hishon taking him at 17. Hishon had his share of injuries this season which limited his play but was the lead Owen Sound in scoring in 2008-09.
NHL Central Scouting had this to say about Hishon
"He's a high-energy, hustle bug. He's got pretty good skill. He's one of those guys that is really noticeable when you see him play because of his work ethic and the energy he brings every night."
While the Avalanche have definitely gone off the board for this one, it seems to be the theme of the night.
