After watching many highly-touted prospects inexplicably fall to the middle of the round, the Colorado Avalanche instead selected 18 year old Center Joey Hishon out of Ontario, Canada.
Hishon was ranked #47 overall prospect by TSN and was not predicted by any mock draft as a first round selection. He is listed as 5’10" and 170 pounds.
According to NHL.com, Hishon missed much of the season with a broken foot, limiting him to 40 points in 36 games.
