2007 Draft List - Karl Alzner
NHL Central Scouting Rank: No. 5 North American Skater

Born: 7-24-1988
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 206 lbs
Position: Defense
Shoots: Left
Last Team: Calgary Hitmen (WHL)
Nickname: Al

Central Scouting Report: 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.

2006-07 Season: Named 2006-07 Eastern Conference Second Team All-Star... had 8-39-47 and a +16 plus/minus rating... was a member of Team Canada's gold medal winning team at the 2007 World Junior Championships in Sweden... selected to play in the 2007 CHL Top Prospects Game.

What they're saying: "Already 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, he has the frame to handle NHL duty and he also has the smarts to not get overwhelmed in any situation. HE is not as physical as some would like, but that is an area of his game he can develop
