    Seeing Hutsko come up and being endorsed in several posts here, can someone provide a detailed scouting report?

    Was joking about the Marchand part, but wouldn't be too surprised to see him making the NHL in some capacity.

    I'm also interested in Hutsko, I don't know much about him but he produced at the same rate as Mittelstadt and is slightly younger...

    I've been pretty high on Riley Stotts. The Calgary Hitmen have developed so many NHL prospects, one of the best junior teams in the CHL, and since he's gotten to Calgary he was really starting to show what he's made of. Think he has the potential to be on one of the top lines on the respective team that drafts him.

    He's a fast skater who likes to carry the puck and go East-West as much as North-South. Pretty good at gaining the offensive zone with puck carrying skills. He's got some good puck control and can run a powerplay effectively. Lead his team in scoring as a rookie. On the downside he's pretty small, and lacks strength. I like him in the 2nd-3rd round but expect him to go later (5-6th).

    I'd happily take him in the 2nd or 3rd. What about Brandon Kruse? Similar production, also pretty small

    How would you describe his shot?

    From the little I've seen of him, I'd say it looks pretty weak, but I'm not entirely sure.

    Yes weak shot at the moment. But he has a pretty quick release, good accuracy, and has good hand eye coordination so he can finish passing plays. But he definitely shouldn't be the main shooter on his line until he adds velocity.

    Fun Fact: he won Rookie of the Year for Hockey East. The last three to win it were all 1st round picks (Eichel, White, Keller).

    Not a bad pick in the second round but we'll probably see him "fall" to 3rd or 4th.

    He's a step or two down from Hustko IMO but still has some good qualities. Very good skater with plenty of speed. Uses his acceleration and speed to win puck races and backchecks hard. He hustles hard and tougher than expected for an undersized teenager. I can see why his coach at Bowling Green trusted him with so much icetime as a Freshman.

    Overall pretty good offensive skills but I see him developing more as a defensive specialist if he makes it to the next level.

    I think that Jonny Tychonik out of the Penticton Vees could be a real sleeper. He is likely to go anywhere from 25-40. BCHL is a strong league, and he is going to UND next year. I think he will end up being one of the better PPQB's in this draft, and would be pumped if the Canucks can get him at 37.

    Zhuravylov.

    If it wasn't for the Russian factor, I think he'd be a much higher potential pick.
