Description: Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta had a very nice rookie season with nine goals and 20 assists.
Insight: Pittsburgh would love to give Maatta some more playing time, but the Penguins have plenty of good defenseman. Kris Letang and Christian Ehrhoff will get the power-play minutes and Paul Martin is likely still the team's best overall defenseman. Maatta might not be a start worthy defenseman on draft day, but check back if one of those first three players get injured.
