July 2013 - Jonathan-Ismael Diaby is a massive defenceman with a nasty streak and solid instincts in his own zone.  Diaby projects as a shutdown defenceman in the NHL however this past season he had a breakthrough year offensively with four goals and 26 points in 67 games for the Victoriaville Tigres of the QMJHL. It will be interesting to see if he can build off of those offensive numbers in the 2013/14 season but off-season shoulder surgery might limit his opportunity. Diaby is a long term project and won't see NHL action anytime soon, however there may not be a team better at developing defensive prospects than the Nashville Predators so keep an eye on him.

A raw, long term project with good size. Doesn't forecast as a big time point producer however he is still improving that aspect of his game. PIM upside.
