New Jersey Devils Choose Steve Santini with 42nd Overall Pick (In Lou We Trust)
Santini is a defenseman, so he doesn't fill an organizational need. He's not an offensive defenseman if only because he scored no goals at all in 2012-13 between USNTDP, USHL, and international play. Based on his profile at Elite Prospects, he is big at 6'2" and 207 pounds. It follows he can hit and, as evidence, Corey Pronman felt the same. Pronman had plenty of praise for Santini as he ranked 28th on his top 100 prospects at Hockey Prospectus.
