History
Talent Analysis
Primarily a stay-at-home rearguard, Melnychuk is focused more on keeping pucks out of the Brandon goal. He is a big player who will benefit from weight gain during the current off-season. He skates well enough at this juncture of his career to be considered a mobile defenseman, but he will have to be mindful that increasing his foot speed next season will be very important. Developing a mean streak will also help.
