Dalton Thrower was (I believe) a great pickup for the Canadiens at last year’s draft! Surprising that he was still there at 51st!
Thrower isn’t the biggest D-man around, but he doesn’t have to be. One thing that he has… work ethic. He’s described as a “blue collar” type defenseman who can move the puck and he can “throw ‘em”. Dalton Thrower is currently penned in at 6ft, 197 lbs (on the OHL’s website)
The type of guy that many teams need, not just our Habs, who will work hard and give his 100% with every game and won’t back down.
So far, in his 4th year with the Saskatoon Blades, Dalton has 1 goal / 1 assist in 5 games played. He’s a +1 and has 8 PIM. Last season was a great year for him and let’s hope much success for him this season!
Here’s a quick video highlighting some toughness.
