Canucks Select D Jacob Truscott At #144 Overall

Another rearguard as the Canucks turn to the USNTDP for their 5th Round pick.

More random draft pics for you...

The Canucks scouting team sure do seem to like their American born players of late, and they’ve just chosen another one as they selected USNTDP D Jacob Truscott.

Truscott may not be anywhere near as good as his favorite player Quinn Hughes, but does have some similarities in his game. His skating ability and edgework are above average and he creates offensive chances walking the line in the opposing zone. Sounds kinda familiar, right?

Truscott is headed for the University of Michigan next, and hopefully the deficiencies in his game will be ironed out there. And as far as comparisons go, if the Canucks could get this out of him, that would be a hell of a pick.

The Canucks next pick is in Round 6 at #175.
