Caps Pick D-Man

With their 5 overall pick the Washington Caps pick a defenseman from the Calgary Hitman Karl Alzner. A gritty and tough d-man, it looks like he could be a Bredan Witt type with a tad more speed. Here is what says about the 5th pick in the 2007 NHL Draft:

A skilled stay-at-home defenseman with good skating ability. Is calm under pressure and composed with the puck. Has good positioning and reads the play well. Has a strong shot from the point. Wins battles along the boards and in his own zone. Needs to improve his acceleration and his ability to change tempo throughout the game.

Quick stats:
Pos: Defense
Shoots: L
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 206 lbs.
Born: 9/24/1988
From: Burnaby, BC
Team: Calgary (WHL)
2006-2007 Calgary (WHL) 63 Games Played, 8 goals, 39 assists, 32 penalties in minutes
