    The most underrated goalie in the draft has just been grabbed at 76 to the Sens. Chris Driedger is a stud here. Potential through the roof

    Really, really smart moves by the Sens here. Identified the need, addressed it.

    Jarrod Maidens LW/C Owen Sound Attack, 60.5 178

    When Jarrod Maidens was selected 4th Overall, he was expected to be an impact player for the Attack as he developed. However up to this point its been a bit of a reverse role than most rookies. Due to a concussion, Jarrod was only able to participate in 28 games this season. However Maidens biggest moment with the Attack likely came while still in his rookie season. Jarrod scored the OHL Champi- onship winning goal in overtime to help the Attack capture their first ever OHL Championship.

    Jarrod is a good skater for someone over 6 ft. tall. He rushes the puck effectively and particularly when hes on Left Wing, he drives the wing hard, protecting the puck towards the net. He has a good shot, with a very quick release on it. While his puck protection is good and he seems to absorb contact well, showing good balance, he doesnt seem to engage much in the physical game. His willingness to throw hits is inconsistent at best and he does take the long route to the puck, trying to win it without taking the initial hit. He has size, but overall plays a little smaller. Wed like to see him add some more muscle and physicality to his game, as he needs to be more aggressive to maximize his potential. His skating, hands and shot will make him a valuable prospect, but we feel he could drop more than his skill would suggest, due to how much hockey he missed with his concussion.

    Maidens just another MO pick by the Sens. Injured? So what, we'll take a chance. This is why some teams draft better than others because they don't watch them in their draft year only.
