SenShot Mock Draft Pick #24 - Vancouver Canucks


A team that could soon be undergoing a big transition with a new coach and new players has the #24 pick.  After an underwhelming playoff performance, expectations will be high.

 

#24 – VANCOUVER CANUCKS

TEAM STRENGTHS:  offensive leadership, goaltending

TEAM WEAKNESSES:  cap problems, grit on top 6 F

HOCKEY’S FUTURE ORGANIZATIONAL PROSPECT RANK27th of 30 teams

UNDER CONSIDERATION:  Josh Morrisey, Ryan Hartman, Andre Burakovsky, Laurent Dauphin, Morgan Klimchuk

FANSIDED MOCK DRAFT PICK:  The Canuck Way selected Emile Poirier

 

SENSHOT’S CHOICE:   Ryan Hartman from the Plymouth Whalers of the OHL.  Vancouver has the skill, and they have some grit, but don’t have a lot of skilled grit.  Hartman helps in this area, as he is a power forward who is chippy and is the type of player who would fit nicely into John Tortorella’s good books. He won’t set the world on fire offensively but can contribute, but his physical play and defensive awareness for an 18 year old will benefit the Canucks in the future.
