Statistics: 14 GP, 10-8—18, 61 PIM
Scouting: 31st among North American skaters
Looked great on the ice as a freshman at BC, but missed 25
games with a neck injury and then a suspension following his
collision with Joe Exter.
Take: "Patrick Eaves is a hard-nosed competitor.
It’s going to come down to who saw him, who believes
in him, and (who is) not worried about his injuries. Some
teams may not have even seen him because of the circumstances,
so he could really be a great bargain for someone who loves
him. You’re talking about the reality of the draft.
Eaves is a wild card, and not because he can’t play,
just because of his situation. He’s smart, he’s
skilled, and he competes like a bastard."
