What's right with Derek Grant

I've neglected this space for far too long, so it's time to get back on the stick...

Langley winger Derek Grant is looking like a riser here late in the scouting season. The big winger has some good straight line speed and excellent hands around the net.

He should be a middle round pick, somewhere around the 4th or 5th round. If he played a more rugged style, he would have a better shot at slipping into the top 3 rounds. He's somewhat of a gentle giant, but has the combination of hand, size, and skating that starts looking too good to pass up to NHL teams somwhere around the 100th pick.
