I'm preparing an article on some prospects on the USA Hockey U-17 team ... They've got some astounding young talents who loook like top prospects for the 06 draft. Erik Johnson -- Big defenseman with great skill. WIll play for gophers in 06. Great skater for a big kid. Loves to move the puck up the ice. He likes to mix it up and he throws his body around, but doesn't have hitter's mentality like Jack Johnson. Way to early to say, but seems like a lock for the first round. Dan O'Brien - Looks like a powerfoward with great skill in the making. 6'2. Good size. Willing to hit. SICK moves. Lots of upside. Needs to shoot more. Brett Bennet - Every team I've seen this kid, I've been impressed. He plays his angles. He seems big in the net, though he's not huge (6ft). He's got a great glove. He moves well. He makes the easy saves look easy. He makes game-saving spectacular saves. He LOVES to play the puck and get it up ice to teammates. And he's very vocal, telling teammates where they should be and who's sneaking in. Other impressive guys? Patrick Kane is an offensive force, but he's just 5'9. Ryan Flynn is a big forward who loves to hit, loves to shoot, and is very responsible in his own end. The whole package. Rhett Rakshani seem's much bigger than the 5'10 he's listed at. Lots of skill. Good skater. Chad Morin very skilled offensive defenseman. Kevin Montgomery has a hard and quick shot from the point. He also has decent size for a defenseman at 6'1 and growing. And Jamie McBain is rock solid in his own end and punishes forwards. Any thoughts on this guys?
