Defenseman, Portland Winterhawks (WHL)
Raw Charge talks about the pick, which was a pretty easy one for them...
Suddenly, planning to pick between forwards isn't necessary. Not only do the Lightning have a chance to draft the best on the board, but the best on the board in a position of weakness for the club that GM Steve Yzerman is tasked with rectifying this offseason and long term. It's why Rick Bowness was brought in as a new assistant coach; it's why other changes will likely happen for the Lightning on the blue line over the course of the summer.
Check in with Raw Charge for more. The draft continues on Tuesday with selections from Nashville, Carolina and Calgary.
