Like we’ve done in the past, we’re profiling top prospects who may hear their names called in the first round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
Logan Brown (C)
Height: 6-foot-6 Weight: 220 pounds Shoots: Left
Team: Windsor Spitfires (OHL)
NHL Central Scouting ranking: No. 7 North American skater
Kennedy says: “There’s a lot of hype around Brown lately, and with good reason.
“He’s a legit tower at 6-foot-6, with a lot of room to get stronger. He’s an insanely good playmaker and he’s learning to shoot the puck more. Plus, his dad is former NHLer Jeff Brown, so he’s got the bloodlines going for him too.
“There is some risk in Brown, as he still needs to fully grasp his own potential. For me, he could turn out to be Joe Thornton, or he could turn out to be Joe Colborne. Naturally, teams picking around the top-10 are hoping for the former and like teammate Mikhail Sergachev, Brown will get a Memorial Cup experience next year, as the Spitfires host.”
