Here is my Top 10 for the 2005 NHL Draft 1. Gilbert Brule - 1987, 5'10 180lbs, Vancouver Giants - Skilled center from Vancouver is leading his team in points and is on pace for 40+ goals, 90+ points and 200+ pims as a 17 yr old. Strong in the corners, deadly in the slot, the kid has been money in the bank up to this point in his career. 2. Chris Durand - 1987, 6'2 185lbs, Seattle T-Birds - Another skilled center from Canada, Durand has been slowed a bit after missing the start of the season due to an injury. A good skater, a good puckhandler, Durand can also play a two-way game which makes him a top prospect. 3. Devin Setoguchi - 1987, 6' 185lbs, Saskatoon Blades - A physical winger with a nice scoring touch, Seto is on pace for about 40 goals in his sophmore season. Was a member of Canada's gold medal U18 team this past summer in the Czech Republic. 4. Carey Price - 1987, 6'2 185lbs, Tri-City Americans - Big goalie from Williams Lake, BC has been on fire as of late. Named the top goalie at the U18 World Junior Cup this past summer where Canada won gold, Price has 5 shutouts so far this season in the WHL and 3 have come in his last 3 games. 5. Kenndal McArdle - 1987, 5'11 195lbs, Moose Jaw Warriors - McArdle is moving up the charts with his play of late and has been arguably the Warriors best player to date this season. Has an outside shot at 50 goals this season and is only a -5 on probably the worst team in the CHL to start this year. 6. Kris Russell - 1987, 5'9.5 159lbs, Medicine Hat Tigers - Pint sized D-man for the Tigers can flat out score! 16 goals so far this season, Russell was another member of the dominating U18 team for Canada that won gold this past summer. 7. Nick Drazenovic - 1987, 6'1 180lbs, Prince George Cougars - Hometown kid leads the Cougars in points so far this season. Has above average skill in all aspects of the game, but it's his vision and passing that will set him apart in the future. +7 on a sub .500 team shows he has a defensive game as well. 8. Dustin Kohn - 1987, 6'1 180lbs, Calgary Hitmen - Sophmore D-man for the Hitmen is showing a well rounded game so far this season. Playing with a number of NHL draft picks on D in Calgary, Kohn will only get better from the likes of Schultz, Rogers, Carson, etc. 9. Scott Jackson - 1987, 6'4 195lbs, Seattle T-Birds - Another draft eligible player out of Seattle, Jackson is more a stay at home kind of guy who uses his size and reach to his advantage. Jackson does see PP and PK time, but it's his +16 that is very impressive for this 2nd year guy. 10. Colton Yello****n - 1987, 5'7 175lbs, Lethbridge Hurricanes - Mr. Yello****n may be small, but leading the WHL in points to date gets him on my list for now. The 'Brocket Rocket' isn't the fastest guy, nor does he have the hardest shot, but his work ethic, instincts and passion have him headed for a bright future with Lethbridge.
