Huge Center/Wing

Logan Brown

Height: 6 foot 6

Weight: 218 pounds

Age: 18

Brown also played in the OHL for the Windsor Spitfires (like Sergachev) this summer, posting 74 points in 59 games. He played in a short stint in the USDP as well, posting 13 points in nine games.

He is massive, as is noted above, and finding a center with his high end talent and size is a difficult find in the NHL. Here’s what Elite Prospects have to say about him:

"Brown is a huge center that excels at both ends of the ice. He can be dominant in the offensive zone but takes care of his own end as well. His 6’6 frame is key to his success as he uses his body to shield his puck and his reach to keep it off other players sticks. He is not overly physical for a player his size, but will finish every check and battle down low very effectively. He has a good shot with a pro like release as well as good creativity and maturity when passing the puck. (Tyler Parchem, EP 2016)"

Most rankings have him going around the tenth pick, with some ranking him as high as 11th, and others ranking him 16th at the lowest.

He’s certainly a reach at the tenth pick, which is why the Avalanche may exchange a couple of picks to ensure that they don’t draft him too early.

Or, they might not even draft him at all, but boy would I love to see a 6 foot 6 center in a Colorado Avalanche uniform, especially one with the skill he has shown this season.
