Cats take a flyer on big American forward in fourth round.

The Florida Panthers went off the board and selected Joe Wegwerth with their fourth round selection at the NHL Entry Draft. Wegwerth is a 6'3", 230 pound forward from the USNTDP. He has committed to Norte Dame, but will reportedly play in the USHL this upcoming season and looks to be a long-term development prospect. He will likely need a few years at the NCAA level before turning pro.

Wegwerth is not much of a scorer, but he is a big, hard-nosed forechecker that could one day be effective on a team's bottom six. For him to go in the fourth round is surprising, most scouts had him pegged as a sixth or seventh-round selection.
