Hurricanes Draft Profile: Erik Karlsson

The later rounds of the draft are always tough to get worked up about because the odds of a player from rounds 4-8 turning into a quality NHL player are somewhat low. That being said, some GMs have an eye for finding talent in the later rounds while and draft prospects who turn into quality role players at the NHL level.
