D, ANDREW O'BRIEN, CHICOUTIMI (QMJHL)
The trend of the Draft thus far seems to be size, as 1st round pick Lindholm (6'2), 2nd pick Kerdiles (6'2) and now 4th round pick Andrew O'Brien (6'4) all add something that was sorely lacking in the Ducks system. O'Brien seems to be the first real surprise, as some thought he would not even be drafted, let alone drafted in the 4th round. The Chicoutimi defenseman is described as hard-hitting, as his highlight reel is comprised more of fights than it is goals or assists.
