2009 NHL Draft: Philadelphia Flyers select D Oliver Lauridsen with 196th pick

New, comments

The theme of the weekend for the Philadelphia Flyers is clearly "big defenseman," as they draft another one with their final pick in the draft. Oliver Lauridsen, a 6-5 defenseman from St. Cloud State University, is just absolultely gigantic.

Here is what Hockey's Future has to say about Laurdisen...

Lauridsen is a huge defenseman from Denmark with great size and reach. A team player with a good work ethic. Is aggressive and physical with the potential to become a very capable stay-at-home defenseman in the future. Mobility, in terms of skating, agility and acceleration, needs improvement.
