Round 1 – 3rd overall
Florida Panthers –
6′ 4″, 195 lbs – Defenseman, Kingston (OHL)
This was expected, especially after the past few days we learned just how much the Panthers coveted this big, intimidating, and highly skilled defenseman. He’s big, good looking and a great players, the perfect fit for the Panthers as they start to rebuild down in Florida.
While Fowler had been at the top of the lists of defensemen all season long it seemed, once Gudbranson started to talk to the teams and the media it became apparent just how special he was not only on the ice but off it as well.
