Just before David Henley on the ranking is Adam Parsells, a huge defenseman who just finished playing high school hockey. Believe it or not, though, Parsells is more of an offense-minded defenseman. He scored seven goals and earned 24 points with Wausau West.

Parsells has already decided he’s going to get himself an education. Well, he’s going to go the college route with his hockey career for now. He’s committed to playing for the University of Wisconsin Badgers.

A fluid skater already, Parsells has worked hard on his puck handling as well. He’d be a great pick for the Avalanche’s fourth round selection.
