Observations:

 

June 2014 - The Nashville Predators selected Justin Kirkland 62nd overall at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross

 

June 2014 –In his first full WHL season with the Kelowna Rockets, Justin Kirkland posted great rookie numbers finding the back of the 17 times and tallying 48 points along the way. Kirkland is an intelligent north-south winger who has shown promising progression. His defensive awareness is good making him a worthy second round investment for a team looking for a potential high reward power forward. Brendan Ross

 

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C+

Not overly strong yet, Justin Kirkland has the size and frame to develop into an impact power forward.
