2013 NHL Entry Draft Prospects
A group for all 2013 NHL Entry Draft prospect profiles and other prospect related posts at ILWT.
Last week, I asked all of you readers to give me your top ten prospects for the 2013 NHL Draft once again. These are the results of all of your top tens, which reveals some kind of consensus as far as who will go where in the top ten.
Tyler Kelleher is a small winger who put up big numbers with the United Stated National Team Developmental Program for two seasons. He wasn't ranked by CSS or other services, but this profile explains why he shouldn't be ignored late in the draft.
As the 2013 NHL Entry Draft comes closer, more mock drafts are coming out. I review the 32 latest ones per DC Pro Sports Report's list and determine that there really isn't a consensus player for the Devils at #9, but the pick was usually a forward.
Artturi Lehkonen had a great season with KalPa and was named the 2012-13 Rookie of the Year in the SM-Liiga. In this profile, learn how this offensive winger performed, what others praise him for, and what concern may drag him down to the 2nd round.
Center Laurent Dauphin had a good rookie season with Chicoutimi and attracted more attention with a strong showing at the World U-18s. In this profile, learn how much praise his skills has received - and what one issue may keep him in the 2nd round.
Justin Bailey is big and has big potential to be a talented winger at the next level. In this prospect profile, read praise for his shot and most of his skating, learn he's still got a ways to go as a player, and realize a Metroid connection.
Eric Comrie is a 17 year old canadian goaltender from Edmonton, Alberta. He weighs in at 170 lbs and stands six feet tall. The 2012-13 season was his second season playing in the WHL and he has been very consist for the Tri-City Americans.
Spencer Martin is one of the top North American goaltenders coming into the 2013 NHL Draft. This profile looks at the positives and negatives to Martin's game along with what he could bring to the Devils if he is chosen with the 39th overall pick.
Anthony Duclair may not be big and he wasn't as productive in his second season with the Quebec Remparts after his first. He's got speed and a good shot among other skills to make him an offensive winger that could go in the 2nd round of the draft.
Rasmus Ristolainen is a Finnish defensive prospect who projects to possibly be one of the better players left on the board for the Devils at #9 in the 2013 entry draft. He has good size and skills, but should the Devils use their pick on a d-man?
Hunter Shinkaruk is the second highest ranked prospect to come out of the WHL. In this profile, much is made of his skating, his hands, his offensive skills, and his lack of size - almost all of which would make him a great pick at ninth overall.
