    There's no better player to take in the draft on NHL 11 than him. He's always almost an 80 player by his second or third season.

    A team will draft him just because of his name.

    I really want to see how they fit that name on the back of an NHL jersey.

    Best post of the thread so far.

    I think he'll just call him Vanhizen.

    He was in my grade at my high school for at least a semester. Was in english class with him.
    He was never really there though :/

    Seemed like a pretty nice guy, would be pretty cool to see him make it to the bigs

    I believe he will be to old, he is turning 21 on April 20 2013. A team can sign him but he wont be eligible for the 2013 NHL entry draft.

    He came to the Oilers rookie camp last summer with David Musil (his teammate with the Giants). Thought he was decent in my viewings of him, nothing special but could turn into a fringe NHL player/steady AHL defender. Love his name though.
