With the No. 17 overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, the Devils selected D Ty Smith.
Smith, 18, played for the WHL's Spokane Chiefs last season where he totaled 73 points (14 goals, 59 assists) over 69 games. Smith was also a memeber of Team Canada during the Hlinka Memorial tournament, where he tallied three assists over five games.
The 5-foot-11, 176-pound defender may not have the prototypical size for a defenseman in the NHL, but he is considered an elite skate with a big upside.
