Sefton KOs David Broll

Saulte Ste. Marie forward David Broll is a little like Austen Brassard in that he hasn't had the kind of strong offensive season to off-set his lack of skating ability, and therefore isn't seen as a great draft option out of the OHL as of now.

But after watching this fight with Sudbury's Justin Sefton, you have to feel for him.

This is the part of being a power forward that many don't understand or appreciate. It can be a tough, tough job. Especially when you're on the receiving end of a bomb like that.


(I would post the video, but without permission to do so, just follow the link to YouTube and see for yourself).

Sefton is a meat-and-potatoes D with not a lot of upside, but some obvious toughness. That could get him drafted as a bottom-pairing type guy- you never know.
