Draft Profile: Adam Larrson

Next up in our draft profile series is hulking Swedish defenseman Adam Larsson.

Adam coming into the season and for a while before then had been the consensus #1 pick for the draft next week. However now he seems to be in a dog fight to be taken in the top five or so. In his most recent power rankings Craig Button of TSN had Larsson ranked at 8. He has drawn comparisons to Victor Hedman, Nik Lidstrom, and Ray Bourque. Larsson although not the meanest players will be a hulking reliable defenseman who a coach can put out there in any situation. If all breaks right for him his size plus great hockey sense could turn him into a heck of a player in the future.

If he falls to us at five we have to take him in my opinion. It would be a foolish mistake to not take him I feel. He stock hasn't fallen recently because of poor play by him, but because people like Huberdeau lit up the playoffs. Getting him at five would be a steal in my opinion!
