    Really?

    I thought he would be a early draft pick a few years ago.

    ya well...he kinda had some issues. First off, they didnt know how old he actually was, and therefore, if he was eligible to be playing for the gens. secondly...while he seemed to have quite a bit of potential, at the OHL all star game he got beaten in a race by a goalie...so ya know...that scared some people away...

    How old is he? But there was hype about him at one time, right?

    I don't think he is fast enough to do that.

    i have no idea how old he actually is. there really hasnt been anything about him in the oshawa media so its hard for me to say. but you were right about the hype. if i remember correctly, at one point he was looking to be one of the top defenseman taken in the 2005 draft.

    i found this:

    FALLING:

    Devereaux Heshmatpour/ Oshawa (OHL)

    Position: Defenseman, Height: 6-6, Weight: 240

    Devereaux Heshmatpour has undergone numerous rumors about his age, a trade from Kitchener to Oshawa and continual struggles with the pace of the Ontario Hockey League. As a result, ISS is starting to question whether he can become a contributor in the NHL. Although he has impressed with his toughness and his willingness to drop the gloves this year, his continual problems with his skating are a major concern. At the CHL Prospects game in Vancouver, Heshmatpour was actually beaten in the 150’ sprint by a goalie wearing full gear and barely beat the goalies in the one-lap time trials. Although there is more to being a player then a performance in a skills competition, his foot speed is a MAJOR concern.

    The hype was tremendous when he was (allegedly) 14/15. Many of those brave (foolish?) enough to attempt mock NHL drafts had him going number two after Crosby. Then his rookie year with Kitchener in the OHL was a pretty big dissapointment. The potential scouts saw in him kept him on the scouting lists for the NHL draft initially but by the end of the year it was clear he wasn't anything close to what he was once thought to be.

    It's pretty amazing just how far his stock fell in retrospect.
