With the 42nd overall pick, Calgary chose 6′, 195 pound defender Patrick Sieloff out of the U-18 developement team in the US. He’s a guy descibed as having a good first step, a fluid stride and good leadership qualities. He didn’t score much last year and probably doesn’t have much upside in terms of points.
Sieloff has committed to play with the Windsor Spitfires in the OHL next year, where he’ll get a lot more action and ice time. He sounds like a Tyler Wotherspoon type player who may or may not develop into a steady second pairing guy down the road.
