The Atlanta Thrashers
 
Zach Bogosian
Meet Zach Bogosian, the Thrashers' 2008 first-round pick. Bogosian started the 2007-08 season outside of the ISS Top Ten but with solid play from the start to the finish of the season, ISS scouts moved him ahead of all the other defensive prospects to No.2 overall. He is a smooth skating defenseman who can carry the puck up the ice and play an offensive style of game without sacrificing defense. In addition to solid skills, Zach demonstrated a willingness to play physical when necessary.
