Scouting Report (Puck Prospectus):

Gormley comes with a great set of tools. He is such a good puck-mover and makes quality decisions, time after time, with the puck. He isn’t one-dimensional and will be a tremendous asset on the backend.

Why he'd be a good fit in Columbus:

Gormley is generally considered to be one of the top three blueliners available in the draft. As was the case with Fowler and Gudbranson, Gormley fits the bill as a potential top-pairing defender for Columbus. He is teammates with one of Columbus' top prospects in Moncton- fellow blueliner David Savard.
