Noah Juulsen

thumb_1432149461099_771059.jpg

Position: Defenseman
Shoots: Right
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 174
Born: 2 April 1997
Birthplace: Surrey, BC, Canada
Drafted: MTL 2015 (1st Round / 26th Overall)

• In his second full season in the Western Hockey League, Juulsen paced Silvertips defensemen with 52 points (9-43—52) in 68 games to help the club finish atop the U.S. Division. His plus-22 rating was second on the club behind fellow sophomore Nikita Scherbak (selected 26th overall by MTL in 2014).

• Juulsen helped Team Pacific capture a silver medal at the 2014 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, tallying two points (1-1—2) in six games.

• A product of the Abbotsford Minor Hockey Association, Juulsen wore the “C” for his bantam team in 2011-12 before being selected in the fourth round (70th overall) by Everett in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft.

• Juulsen attended Yale Hockey Academy, the same school as NHL prospects Shea Theodore (selected 26th overall by ANA in 2013) and Jake Virtanen (selected 6th overall by VAN in 2014).

• The Abbotsford, B.C., native wears No. 3 because he grew up idolizing Vancouver Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa.

I watched this guy in the summer tournament and he looks pretty solid playing against top lines, and now Button saying he should make World Juniors for Canda. Things continue to get better for our first rounder.

i find that usually when Timmins and co draft players that were ranked a lot lower than their draft position (Juulsen was expected to go mid-late second round) its because they see something very special that others havent. We shall see but I could definitely see him becoming a diamond in the rough.

Great positional play last night. He reads the play very well and has the speed and creativity to develop into another Beaulieu. Let's hope he puts on 20 lbs in his last year Juniors, plays heavy minutes in AHL next year and then finally joins our defensive corp in 2017.!!!

Just got cut from the World Junior team. :(

That was last year and this year he looks like a sure thing. Here's a piece on him from this morning.

Wonder if he's ready to make the jump next year.   Obviously this would put him on the 3rd pair (he's not supplanting Weber or Petry and he wont play his off-side as a rookie).  The nice thing, if he's able to play with the big club, would mean we could slot Benn into a top 4 role (next to Petry maybe).
