Pick Analysis. C. Alex Turcotte. US U18. 11. 94. Scouting Report

Turcotte is a great talent. In the USHL this season he scored over two points per game (35 points in 16 games). He put up another 53 points in30 games for the US under 18 team. At 5’11” and 184lbs he’s got NHL size. The Wisconsin commit should be part of the Blackhawks next wave of top talent alongside Alex DeBrincat.

Scouting Report. Victoria Grizzlies. Alex Newhook. 12. 121. Pick Analysis. C

They were in the playoffs. They were so close. But the Coyotes have fallen off late in the season and now sit outside of the postseason standings. No worries, they get to draft a player who scored 102 points in 53 games for the Victoria Grizzlies of the BCHL.

13. 98. Scouting Report. USA U18. Cam York. Pick Analysis. D

He’s not the biggest D-man, but he puts up big points. He had 46 in 52 games for the US national U18 team this season. That’ll do for a Minnesota Wild team that needs to get younger and more skilled as quickly as possible to keep up in the tough Central Division.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. C. 14. 91. Barrie Colts. Ryan Suzuki*

*This pick was acquired by Ottawa in the trade for Matt Duchene to Columbus Blue Jackets

There a bunch of defensemen still on the draft board but Ottawa don’t have too many options down the middle. They’ll take Ryan Suzuki from the Barrie Colts. With an impressive 75 points in 65 games, it makes sense as to why.

D. Edmonton Oil Kings. Matthew Robertson. Pick Analysis. Scouting Report. 15. 68

They almost made the postseason, but eventually fell short. No biggy. Now they get to add blueliner Matthew Robertson from the Edmonton Oil Kings. With 33 points in 52 games he’s done well in terms of production, but what the are really getting from the 6’3″ 196lbs defender is a smart player that’s mobile and does everything well. Just an all-around great prospect.
