Observations:

 

December 2013 - Scott Harrington has become a very dependable AHL defenseman for the WBS Penguins already in his first pro season. He is relied upon in all situations and has contributed statistically with two goals and six assists in 23 games for WBS. Though his play probably warrants it, Harrington will most likely not get a call-up to the NHL this year because of their defensive depth. Seth Brisendine

 


December 2012 - Harrington has been named to the Team Canada final roster for the 2013 WJC. He has had a solid season as captain of the London Knights, with nine points in 33 games while playing a steady defensive game. While there is definitely a place in the NHL for players of Harrington's character and iattributes, he is unlikely to be a fantasty factor. Rich Dillon


May 2012 – Harrington is a rugged two-way blue liner that gives opponents fits to play against. He is a very mobile skater with a great deal of strength and quite difficult to hit off his skates. He is proficient in making the outlet pass, carrying the puck, and owns a good slapshot as well. Harrington plays a defensive style first, but if he can join the rush more and kick in his offensive potential, there is no question he’ll be in Pens line-up in a few seasons. He is currently enjoying a run at the 2012 OHL Championship and possibly the Memorial Cup too. Russ Bitely

 

Fantasy Outlook: C+

Harrington has a solid two-way and is on his way to developing into top four-defensive defenseman in the NHL.
