    I was gonna start a thread on this guy. His numbers are excellent and he's small but not tiny. Also he's the all elusive right hand shot.

    Can anyone provide more info on this kid.

    Watched him extensively. Plays like a 4th forward, smart skater but not fast. Is absolutely lethal in the offensive zone. His defensive game is pretty nonexistent.

    No one expects his positioning and movement in the offensive zone. He ends on the half boards a lot. He is the best powerplay-specialist-prospects in this years draft.

    We tracked him down in Princeton in December:

    http://www.thedraftanalyst.com/recaps/ntdp-vs-princeton/

    Only risk is going to be an Ivy Leaguer and likely will stay all four years, but that's only a problem from a contractual standpoint.

    Very dynamic with the puck and is the de facto QB on the NTDP's PP.

    I like him a lot. great shot to make the WJC team next year, I was actually going to start a thread on Ryan Lindgren as well, so good to get these kids out there and talked about.

    Would a swap to RW be a good idea for him?

    I don't see why. He's an offensive defenseman who has plenty of time to work on his defense, which isn't even as alarmingly bad as Bean's.

    This begs the question to me then; why is bean higher? assuming higher offesnsive upside in total.

    When someone said his defense was bad I was thinking Justin Schultz/Mark Stuart bad, not like Del Zotto(?)

    Bean is more decisive and doesn't second-guess himself as Fox, plus he has a better shot.

    Bean's problems in his own end center on lazy passes. He needs that extra second to remain calm and think before blindly throwing the puck across the front of his own goal. I've seen games where Bean literally dumps it into his own slot from behind the net for no real reason.

    Sandis Ozolinsh is a comparable. The good and the bad.

    This guy has world-class hands for a defenseman.

    I've really liked what I've watched of him so far at the WJC-18.

    I don't think anyone's going to spend a first on him, but somewhere between mid 2nd/early 3rd is where I expect him to go. He seems really good, by far the best US defenseman I've watched so far at the WJC-18. All the others seem like projects, I don't get that sense with Fox. Outside of getting a little stronger and a little tightening up defensively, he looks like he'll play in the NHL eventually.

    Big time credit to DM23BK30 who had previously told the prospect followers in the NYR section to follow him. Steve obviously knows his stuff, as its his job. :laugh:

    Don't think he will go top-60 due to size but he should be for sure.

    I'm a fan of this kid. Hopefully the Leafs pick him with the Capitals second.

    He's been very impressive to be in the U-18's

    I was holding this kid back from the top-60 because I thought his play was a fluke. It's no fluke. He's a stud. A brilliant passer -- Harlem Globetrotters on skates.

    Can't wait for him to be a College Free Agent in 4 years...

    Kidding aside, his 4 years at Harvard will help him bulk up before turning pro. Hopefully the team that drafts him can sign him.

    As intelligent as he probably is off the ice, he exudes hockey IQ on it. So smart and so smooth. Provided he actually signs with the team lol, he could be a steal. Always impressive, each game and shift.

    Long Island native, my brother played with him. Heard he's a nice kid. He's shocked but not shocked that he's this highly touted.

    Where is he supposed to go? Late 2nd?
