Top highlights of potential Red Wings draft target Jamie Drysdale (VIDEO)

The bad news? The Detroit Red Wings did not earn the 1st overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft, instead having to settle for the 4th overall pick.

The good news? There will still be plenty of talent for GM Steve Yzerman to choose from. And one of the players that you can bet he’ll have in his considerations is right-handed defenseman Jamie Drysdale of the OHL’s Erie Otters.

Per DobberProspects.com:

“Drysdale has done nothing to discredit himself as the best defenseman in the 2020 NHL Draft since the start of the year. He’s been outstanding for a middling Erie squad putting up a point-per-game through 40 games. His skating and IQ have been on display all season long including when he emerged as one of the best defensemen on the gold medal-winning Canadian World Junior team despite being the youngest member of the blueline group and has grown his game in the defensive end of the ice. If anything, Drysdale has raised his stock since the beginning of the year and will likely continue to solidify his place as the clear-cut number one defender in this years class.” -Tony Ferrari

Check out some of his top video highlights in his young career so far:
