Flyers Draft Stay-at-Home Defenseman Colin Suellentrop 116th Overall

New, comments

With their first pick in the fourth round, the Flyers drafted 6'1" defenseman Colin Suellentrop. Suellentrop may not have gaudy numbers (14 points in 59 games for Oshawa of the OHL), but stay-at-home defensemen rarely do.

The scouting reports on Suellentrop are that he is a big guy who can skate - huge positive - but that he currently lacks positional smarts - can be improved. For a fantastic, must read report on Suellentrop, head over to In Lou We Trust.

Stay at home defensemen may be boring, but the Flyers love to draft those big guys on defense. He joins Oliver Lauridsen in the Flyers' system in that category.
