"Slated to possibly go in the first round, [Dmitri] Orlov was considered to be a steal when he was sitting there at No. 55. He excels in all of the offensive aspects of the game. He skates extremely well and his passing and shooting skills are exceptional. Even though he is considered small for a defenseman, Orlov is strong at his core and doesn't back down from the physical side of the game. If he can improve his overall effectiveness in his own end, he could turn out to be a gem in the late second round."
