Colton Gillies(18) Houston Aeros

Minnesota Wild 2007 1st round draft pick (#16 overall) Colton Gillies(18) has been in the system for a couple of years but has yet to excel as he splits his time between the AHL and the NHL, last season mostly with Houston Aeros.

With his head coach in Texas moving up north to Minnesota next season, I expect Gillies(18) will once again spend the majority of the year in the NHL, potentially as a shut down, checking line player. He should also be scoring goals though with all that size he brings to the table.
