2003 Calgary Flame Draft Selections


Position: Center
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 173
Shoots: Right
Birthdate: July 11, 1985
Birthplace: Breton, AB
Acquired: Drafted in 2003 (6th Rd, #173)


A lanky centre who saw action in only 49 games with Moose Jaw last year, registering eight goals and 14 points but scoring twice and adding an assist in 13 games.

Appears to be a skill-oriented centre who needs to add some weight to his bean-pole frame. Essentially the rookie fourth line centre on a pretty good Moose Jaw team and will probably move up the ladder.

Darryl Sutter said before the draft "you can't teach size" and while this kid has the height its doubtful he has the strength yet.


Pick Appraisal:

The pick moves away from the rather hefty chaps the Flames had drafted earlier in 2003. Obviously a project given his draft position as well as his standing on the Moose Jaw squad.
