Wow, another defenseman.
#137 Jordan Sambrook
#82. Good value for Detroit
Well, we wanted them to select a bunch of defensemen.

#RedWings take D Jordan Sambrook (Erie) in 5th round (137). 6-2, 186. Shoots R. Red Line: Unsung d-man is one of RLR’s favorite sleepers.
Another good skating defenseman with some offensive touch. I'm happy.
Yes! I love this pick!
Big,good skater and has offensive potential. Bout all we could ask for in the 5th.
Yup Holland loading up on the D, Can't go wrong there.
Big fan of this pick. This kid has a lot of talent in my opinion, just stuck behind some guys. Seriously stellar work to get him this deep in my opinion.
Very happy with this pick, im shocked he did not go sooner.
I love this pick going to be a nice sleeper pick.
Very nice use of a 5th-round pick.
other than that bit of an off ball early 2nd rd pick, loading up on dmen is exactly what we needed to do
next year as well
I am not a scout by any means. But I did have Jordan Sambrook as a potential guy for us to consider in the 2016 NHL Draft thread.
Brock, who is a real deal prospect hound had this to say about Sambrook:
This seems like a good pick. Wish they had taken more guys like this.
Yeah was really hoping for a CHL defenseman in the first 2 rounds.
There were lots of them I liked.
I like this pick, hopefully though one of our new defense prospect makes it, so burned out by all the busts.

More on Sambrook. Had him ranked 34th among OHL players this year.
Guy is the next seabrook
Little bit of a "Larkin" type situation going on here.
As in, Larkin was stuck behind Eichel, and thus was overshadowed. Our scouts really liked Larkin and were thrilled he fell that far.
Hoping for a similar situation with Sambrook. Also like how a few of our posters were hoping for this guy before he was taken (was that FRK IT and a few others? don't remember)
You guys got a real steal here. I know the family very well. Great kid and his determination and attitude alone will push him to make the wings one day. I also helped coach his team when he was younger.
Thanks about this.
Another right-hander I'm always a little bit more thrilled about.
Good. We can blame you if he busts
