Scouting Report (Puck Prospectus):

Teammate of Taylor Hall, Fowler is the top defender in this year’s class. Puck-mover extraordinaire, Fowler can make cross-ice and stretch passes at ease. When he has the puck on his stick, his hands, vision and awareness are smooth and beautiful to watch. Not much of a physical presence, preferring to use stick work and positioning on defense. The only knock on him would be the lack of goals for such a skilled player, but there is no doubt of his high-end potential.

Why he'd be a good fit in Columbus:

The Jackets have a lot of good blueline prospects in the system. Leading the way are last year's first round pick John Moore, along with guys like Grant Clitsome, David Savard, Cody Goloubef, Teddy Ruth and Will Weber. That said, Fowler is a mobile blueliner who has high-end offensive ability. Outside of the emerging Kris Russell, there aren't any other players in the system with this kind of offensive talent. Moore is an offensive type, but he is unproven in the pros.
