Penguins Select Defenseman Scott Harrington from the London Knights in the Second Round

For thosewho may have been a bit surprised by the Penguins' decision to go with a defenseman with the 23rd overall pick, I'd love to hear where you stand now that the Pens went with another d-man with the 54th pick.

Scott Harrington, a six foot defenseman out of Kingston, ON, played 67 games for the Longdon Knights of the OHL last season.  He scored six goals and 16 assists in that span.

I won't pretend to know more about him than I actually do, but from what I've been hearing so far Morrow, the first round pick, is more of an offensive defenseman, while Harrington tends to sway more on the side of shutdown guy. 

Here's an article that was written on Harrington when he was 15 years old for The Hockey News.

Here's a Q&A with Yahoo that has him labeled as a "defensive defenseman."
