Erik Gudbranson's Player Profile

A towering defenseman from Kingston of the OHL, could end up being the best defenseman taken from this year’s draft crop. Although injuries derailed his season and his potential appearance in the CHL top prospects game, Gudbranson still remains a top prospect in this draft.

Gudbranson’s character is unquestionable. He possesses all the traits one likes in a player: He is a leader, very composed and poised on the ice, mature, smart, and has future captain written all over him. In terms of his ability, he has a rocket shot, which has helped increase his offensive production. He makes crisp, smart first passes, and can contribute in all three zones. For a guy of his size, Gudbranson is a smooth skater. Finally, he has innate hockey sense that rivals many of the top picks in the draft. Although there is still room for improvement in his physical game, Gudbranson has shown huge strides in this regard this season. He is also not opposed to dropping the gloves when necessary.
