Tips select D Jantzen Leslie in 1st round

With the 15th overall pick in the Western Hockey League bantam draft Everett selected defenseman Jantzen Leslie.

Leslie is described as a defenseman with good size who moves the puck. The Lloydminster, Alberta, native, who's listed at 6-foot and 167 pounds, had 15 goals and 25 assists in 30 games with a dominating Lloydminster Heat team that finished 31-1-1 during the regular season and reached the championship game of the Western Canadian Bantam Championships. He served as a captain for the Heat.

This is Everett general manager Garry Davidson's third bantam draft with the Tips, and it's the second time he used Everett's first-round pick on a defenseman.

Western Elite Hockey Prospects had Leslie going ninth overall in its mock draft and had a scouting report on him.

Here's an interview Jantzen had last summer.
