Round 1 – 17th overall
Colorado Avalanche – Joey Hishon
5’9″, 170 lbs., C, Owen Sound (OHL)
The Colorado Avalanche reached for Hishon, the 45th ranked North American skater according to Central Scouting. Hishon scored 40 points in 36 games for the Attack during the 2009-10 OHL season. He’ll face an uphill battle to make the Avs’ big club, considering the multitude of young offensive talent employed by one of the league’s surprise success teams.
