Draft Profile: Quinn Hughes

I actually really like Quinn Hughes. I believe his game checks all the boxes, and I think he’s good enough to be the second defenseman off the board. Hughes is very competitive in each shift he takes. He’s a great puck-mover, whether it is making a solid breakout pass or just a simple D-to-D pass. […]

Draft Profile: Adam Boqvist

Adam Boqvist is another Swedish defenseman projected to go in the top 10. I don’t think he’s top 5 material, but I do think he could go 6-10. Boqvist has the potential to be a solid offensive defenseman. He is a very good passer and has a really good shot. He can possibly be a […]

Draft Profile: Noah Dobson

Noah Dobson has been projected as a top seven prospect all year long. His Memorial Cup performance has people now pinning him as a top five pick. While watching him, I thought of a familiar name. The name I thought of was Joni Pitkanen, who happens to be my all-time favorite defenseman. Contrary to what […]

Draft Profile: Brady Tkachuk

A son of Keith Tkachuk and the brother of Matthew Tkachuk, Brady is projected to go either third or fourth overall in the draft. I do like this guy. Tkachuk doesn’t have the elite offensive skills of Svechnikov and Zadina, but he can be an efficient thirty goal scorer. His game reminds me a lot […]

Draft Profile: Filip Zadina

I am going to be honest; I am not high on Filip Zadina. I don’t think I’d even pick him in the top 5, and I’ll explain why. Sure, he has amazing skills offensively. On the surface, he looks like a bonafide future star. He has a very accurate shot; more accurate than Svechnikov. He […]

Draft Profile: Andrei Svechnikov

Projected to go second overall to the Carolina Hurricanes, I am very excited about Andrei Svechnikov. He would be the number one pick in almost any other year. Svechnikov plays an all-around game, and I think there is a bigger drop off from two to three than people think. He has a hard shot and […]

Draft Profile: Rasmus Dahlin

Rasmus Dahlin has been the concensus number one pick for over a year, and I don’t have anything to dispute it. I agree he is the sure number one pick. There are not many true number one defensemen in the NHL, so when you get the opportunity to draft one, you don’t pass it up, […]
