REVS Top 15 Draft Prospects "#3.Sean Monahan"

#3 Sean Monahan

At 6'2 and 193 lbs, there are a lot of teams licking their chops at the opportunity to draft Sean Monahan at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. While few predict he will break the top 2, none will say he falls below top 5. He will be a lottery pick, that can be taken to the bank.

 If there was a player that could benefit the Edmonton Oilers for that 2nd line Center position better, I don't know who it is. He drives to the net consistently, works hard, quick learner, good on face-offs, has size and above average speed and most of all Top 6 potential to play in the NHL one day. 

Monahan's ability to find open ice sets him apart from many other high end draft picks. His greatest credit seems to be scoring timely goals. He has great athleticism and a smooth skating stride. Considering Monahan's patience with the puck on his stick, defenders need to have good gap control as Sean has a full arsenal of offensive skills. Between Sean's saucer passes, wrist shot or one-on-one ability to beat defenders, he will be a handful for teams to cover in the future. When it comes to defensive zone coverage, he is no slouch either.
