Position: RW

Interesting Fact: Garrett joins Avalanche/Lake Erie defenseman David Liffiton as the only Plymouth Whalers to be drafted by the Avalanche.

Whats Next? We may not see Garrett for a few seasons but when and if we do I see him instantly becoming a fan favorite. Watching the game of Garrett Meurs I instantly see a lot of comparisons to NY Rangers star Ryan Callahan. Callahan put up bigger numbers in the season he was drafted but he was drafted 127th while Meurs was drafted 123. Both guys play with a lot of heart and despite being under 6′ tall both play big with a physical game. Give Meurs at least another 2-3 years before he can break the Avs roster but if he does fans will notice him immediately.
