Jamie Oleksiak 6'7'' 244lbs Defenseman in this upcoming draft

Just thought this guy wasn't getting enough attention or recognition around here. Lots of scouts believe he will be taken 10-20 in the 1st round and he is ranked around the middle of the 1st round on most boards. Here are some scout quotes about him so you guys can better learn about this mammoth sized d-man:

Personally, I think he is going to be at minimum a mobile, more physical, and puckmoving(20-30pts/yr) Hal Gill. Which is absolutely nothing to scoff at. Size is unteachable and with his size, physicality, and mobility alone he should easily become a top shutdown d-man in the nhl no problem.

Feel free to comment anything about him below.
