Ian Mitchell, D

Shoots: R

Height: 5-11

Weight: 175

Born: 1999-01-18

Hometown: Calahoo, AB

Drafted: 2nd round, 57th overall by Chicago in 2017

 

Observations:

February 2018- Mitchell has taken his considerable skill set to the University of Denver where he has continued to control play using his great skating. Named Bauer NCHC Defenseman of the Week (Jan. 22, 2018), he is piling up points in his freshman season, currently sitting with 22 in 28 games played. In order to make the transition to professional hockey, Mitchell will need to work harder in his own zone while defending. This would be the weakest point of his game although he is far advanced when compared against his peers due to his excellent skating and positioning.  Tony Carr


 

Fantasy Outlook: B-

smart, smooth skating, offensive defenseman has all the tools to be a future top four pairing. A comparison within the organization is Duncan Keith.

 

Footage:
