Those of you looking for darkhorses for the 2005 draft might be interested in the following. The three following players are among the best at the level 2 WU18s. Since they are playing against players a year older, they look like reasonable prospects. It was at such a tournament 4 years agothat I first nticed (and mentioned to Redline) about a guy names Andrei Kastsitsyn so... Oskars Bartulis Latvia DF 6'2 190 late '86 B-day. Best DF in the tourney. Jannik Steinmann Swiss FW 6'1 185 Best '87 for the dominant Swiss team. 2nd best player on that squad overall. Anze Kopitar Slovenia FW 6'3 195. Also an '87. Possibly the best player in the tournament. Made the so-so Slovenia team a contender. 6 goals in 4 games so far. watch out for this guy. Germany's hot '87 prospect Chris Gawlick is playing in a concurrent U18 tournament. Gawlick is flashy but a little small though: 5'9 170. By far the best 2004 eligible player at this tourney is Swiss winger Julien Sprunger who is 6'5 195 and is leading the tourney in soring- aman among boys. Should be 1st day material at the 2004 draft.
