5th Round, #150 Overall, Matt Marshall

There has been a trade. The Lightning have traded Dallas' 4th round pick in next years draft acquired in the Sydor trade to Ottawa for a bundle of three picks including #150 in the 5th round.

The Lightning select:

C/RW Matt Marshall, 6'1" 175 lbs, Nobles (USHS)
27 GP, 14-10-24, 8 PIM

Like Fadden, Marshall was passed over in last year's draft. He possesses good speed and plays more of a two-way game. Isn't afraid to take the body. Not a pure offensive talent and needs to grow into that part of his game. Played some point on the power play for Nobles. Excellent defensively. Tireless worker. Played center all year for Nobles but considers himself a natural winger. Committed to Vermont of the Hockey East but will play one more year at Nobles before heading to the NCAA, although his USHL rights are held by Waterloo who drafted him #78 overall in the USHL Entry Draft.

Rankings:
NHL CSS: #63 (North American Skaters)

The Lightning have also acquired two additional 7th round picks in the trade: #183 and #210 overall.
