Take a look at an underrated 2007 Draft prospect in Dion Knelsen. Could be the sleeper of the draft because of limited viewing by NHL scouts. Played on Canada's U18 Team last month in Finland. http://www.hockeysfuture.com/articles/9404 He may be the youngest player playing in the CCHA this season and the youngest to have ever donned the jersey of the University of Alaska Nanooks, but Dion Knelsen is a player whose maturity and approach to the game far exceeds his tender age. The Three Hills, AB native just turned 18 on Jan. 4. â€œThe biggest thing about Dion is that he came in as a 17-year-old, so I have to stop and remind myself of that sometimes,â€ said University of Alaska head coach Tavis MacMillan in a December interview with Hockeyâ€™s Future. â€œMaturity-wise, Dion is way beyond his years. On the ice, off the ice and in the classroom, this kid has been special. There are very few student-athletes in college athletics as gifted as Dion is.â€ Knelsen came to the University of Alaska from the AJHLâ€™s Drumheller Dragons, where he posted 74 points (39 goals, 35 assists) in 60 games in 2005-06. In his only season with the Dragons, Knelsen was named to the South Division Team at the 2006 AJHL All-Star game. He concluded the season with being named Drumhellerâ€™s Rookie of the Year and was selected to the AJHL All-Rookie Team. Knelsen was also runner-up for the AJHL Rookie of the Year.
