from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

In this mock, the Wings are pushed back to the fourth selection. Yzerman chooses Jamie Drysdale, considered the best defenseman available in the draft. Drysdale produced nine goals and 38 assists in 49 games this season with the Erie Otters in the Ontario Hockey League. He had a goal and two assists in seven games for Canada at the World Junior Championships.

Drysdale is 5-11, 175 pounds and shoots right. He’s a mobile defender who can skate the puck out of his zone, making smart decisions on the fly on breakouts and finding teammates with precision passing. He’s adept at using his body and stick to keep opponents to the outside in the defensive zone. Drysdale is projected to be a top-pairing defenseman.
