Greg Rajanen, Central Scouting:

"He is having a great year; very solid puck play. He's producing points and has some bite to his game. I believe he's a solid defender and good prospect."

Initial Reaction:

From what I've read and the reaction on NHL Network it sounds like Brandon Montour is a high risk, high reward type of player. He's an offensive defenseman who needs to work on his defensive game. I see him as a player similar to Shea Theodore, but he needs more time to be NHL ready.
