Ian McCoshen is hoping to make a great first impression this fall.

McCoshen is making the jump to pro hockey after spending the last three seasons at Boston College. "I have to make a nice first impression,’’ McCoshen said. "I need to get to know the players here, but also establish my game heading into training camp. It’s different here and I was talking to Mike about the transition. He said not to go in with too many expectations or they will just mount on your shoulders. I don’t want that." The 21-year-old was Florida's second round pick, 31st overall, in 2013. There's a good chance he'll start the season in the minors.

The Florida Panthers selected defenseman Ian McCoshen with the first pick of the second round Sunday.

A polished two-way defenseman with size, speed and spirit, McCoshen shows promise and purpose when carrying the puck and is aggressive when battling with forwards. The big American played top-tier minutes for Waterloo this past season and scored 44 points in 53 games with a plus-35 rating. He can potentially fill a second-pairing role in the NHL thanks to his powerful point shot, natural defensive capabilities and playmaking smarts. Committed to Boston College next year, McCoshen will need to improve his skating mechanics and gain more experience before making the leap to the pros.
