Over the next few weeks here at Octopus Thrower we will be profiling a number of draft eligible players who may be dawning a Detroit Red Wings jersey and cap at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft on June 30th.
Adam Erne is ranked 26th among North American players and is not in the top 30 rankings by the International Scouting
Adam Erne’s second season in the QMJHL was an intriguing one to say the least. He was better than a point per game player and created plenty of scoring chances, but he was also suspended by the Remparts, which he never served.
He was seen as a top pick in this tears draft before falling out of favor with scouts and could be a steal at pick 18.
Erne will require a few more years to develop with the Quebec Remparts and Grand Rapids Griffins.
Adam Erne’s breakdown:
Why He Interests The Red Wings:
|The Red Wings have been missing a true power forward who not only bangs body and can play the physical game, but will also be able to light the lamp consistently and that is what Erne could become for the Red Wings.|
|A top six power forward, who can drive to the net and create scoring chances through hard work and determination rather than pure skill.|
