The Caps’ second-to-last pick goes to another defenseman
With the 176th pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft, the Capitals have selected defenseman Dru Krebs.
Here’s how was ranked by various scouts heading into this draft:
- Ranked #79 by ELITEPROSPECTS.COM
- Ranked #229 by FCHOCKEY
- Ranked #194 by MCKEEN’S HOCKEY
- Ranked #142 by NHL CENTRAL SCOUTING (NA Skaters)
Here’s EP’s scouting report:
Krebs’ dimension is transition, starting with his skating. He’s more skilled than mechanically-sound, lacking depth, but having a separation gear in the WHL and evasiveness from mohawks, punch turns, and fake pivots/cutbacks. Those skills bring inherent deceptiveness, which he increases with look-offs to mask his intended pass recipient.
