2003 Calgary Flame Draft Selections


Position: Left Wing
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 195
Shoots: Left
Birthdate: February 4, 1985
Birthplace: Tecurnseh, Ontario
Acquired: Drafted in 2003 (3rd Rd, #97)


Ryan Donally is a big strapping left winger with great size, and a mean streak. He'll be watched closely over the next 18 months to see if he develops enough to warrant a contract.

Mike Leclerc - a second tier NHL powerforward, with the ability to chip in with the fists when the time comes.

You pick ... any number of large junior hockey players that don't have either the foot speed or hands to compete at the NHL level.


Pick Appraisal:

The Calgary Flames are in dire need of size, and size is something Ryan Donally has in abundance. However, size alone won't get him to the NHL, hence the question mark.
