Islanders general manager Garth Snow may have scored another gem in trading up to draft Anthony Beauvillier. He’s labeled as a center but can play left wing as well. He’s the kind of player every coach loves because you can put him in any spot and he’ll do it. He’s very smart and can read plays very well. He’s lightning quick and as I have stated before can play any role you ask of him and he’ll compliment his line mates like belongs on that line. Make no mistake, this kid can score and will be a big offensive threat. He’s got top 6 written all over him. He’ll need time to physically mature, but he’s got enough of that and when he’s ready will be a great complement. Think Ryan Strome (Style).
