Round 4, Pick #116: ANGUS BOOTH

The Athletic had him in Tier 6 (Projected to play some NHL games).

Cory Pronman's final rankings:
115. Angus Booth, D, Shawinigan (QMJHL)

Apr. 27, 2004 | 6′ 0.25″ | 177 pounds | Shoots left

Tier: Projected has a chance to play games

Skating: NHL average
Puck skills: Below NHL average
Hockey sense: NHL average
Compete: NHL average

Background: Booth was a top-four defenseman for the QMJHL champions playing on both special teams. He was a fourth-round pick in his QMJHL draft.

Analysis: Booth is a mobile defenseman with some skill who was an important two-way defenseman for Shawinigan. He has some talent, but I wouldn’t say his offensive touch pops and while he defends well in junior the question will be whether he can be a standout at either end of the rink to carve out an NHL role.
