Canadian defenseman is the 26th-ranked North American skater by NHL Central
Scouting and is the 12th-rated blueliner on that list...After posting six
goals and 20 points in 68 games for Saskatoon of the WHL in 2010-11, Thrower
broke out with 18 goals and 54 points in 66 games for the Blades last
season...Finished eighth among WHL defensemen in scoring in 2011-12...Scouts
say he plays a strong two-way game and the only real weakness in his game is
his lack of size.
