Jamie Drysdale may find himself in a position few defensemen have been in recently.
In the last five NHL drafts, only two defensemen have been selected in the top three, but the Canadian prospect could add to that list.
The driving factor behind that could be the two picks that belong to the Ottawa Senators, who could opt to take a forward and defenseman at No. 2 and No. 3.
However, there are a few forwards deserving of top-three recognition, including projected No. 1 overall pick Alexis Lafreniere and Quinton Byfield, and they could keep Drysdale out of the top three.
