The Ottawa Senators
 
Erik Karlsson
Meet defenseman Erik Karlsson, Ottawa's 2008 first-round draft selection. ISS believes Karlsson could become the anchor of a team's blueline. He is a skilled puck moving blueliner who is intimidating, talented, smart and works very hard. According to ISS, Karlsson has a booming shot, great hands, incredible vision and excellent defensive awareness. He can evolve into the Senators' next powerplay quarterback.
