NYI DRAFT CENTRAL: Zach Bogosian
The 2008 draft pool is considered the deepest in years and the Islanders are set to select higher in this year's Entry Draft than they have in the past seven. With the Islanders selecting fifth in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft on Friday, June 20 in Ottawa, many highly-touted prospects will be available for the Isles to choose from. Each week leading up to the draft, Newyorkislanders.com will feature a new player who is likely to go early in this year's draft.


ZACH BOGOSIAN

Zach Bogosian
Team: Peterborough Petes (OHL)
Position: Defenseman
Born: July 15, 1990 in Massena, NY (Age 17)
Height: 6-2    
Weight: 197
Shoots: Right
CSS Final Ranking: 2nd among North American skaters

2007-08 Regular Season: Games Played (60), Goals (11), Assists (50), Points (61), PIM (72)

2008 Playoffs:
Games Played (5), Goals (0), Assists (3), Points (3), PIM (8)

Update: Bogosian had a career season in 2007-08, nearly doubling his point total of 33 in the 2006-07 season by leading the Peterborough Petes with 61 points. His 50 assists led the OHL among defensemen. He was the only defenseman in the league to lead his team in points.

While his accolades include a trip to the 2007-08 CHL Top Prospects Game and the 2008 OHL All-Star Game, Bogosian was also chosen as the top defenseman, finished second in offensive defenseman and third in the category of smartest player and hardest worker in the OHL Coaches Poll at the end of the 2007-08 season

Strengths: "Zach is a big player and he plays defense very big. Zach's combination of skating ability and his size are what set him apart. There are some bigger, taller defensemen, who have to grow into their body, but Zach is right there, fully proportioned and ready to make that step into the NHL very quickly."
E.J. McGuire / NHL Director of Central Scouting

What They're Saying:

"Bogosian uses his team's success as a barometer for how he is performing. He thrives on the pressure of shutting down the opposition's top forwards."
-    Aaron Bell / NHL.com

"He's solid defensively, and at the same time he can skate with the puck. He doesn't lose any speed when he's handling the puck. He's good offensively and knows when to jump into the play. He's got a complete game."
-    Vince Malette / Peterborough Head Coach

"The difference between (Drew) Doughty and (Zach) Bogosian is the difference between what is today and what might be down the line. Bogosian is bigger and probably a better athlete who has made improvements in the second half of the season."
-    Gare Joyce / ESPN.com

"The Peterborough Petes have a long history of producing great players for the NHL. Names like Pronger, Yzerman, Stillman, Murphy, Ricci and even Tie Domi all played their junior hockey for the franchise. Another name that may be added in due course to this list is Zach Bogosian."
-    Steve Fitzsimmons / Ontario Hockey Now
