Youngest Player in this Year's Draft

Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by Granlund2Pulkkinen*, Mar 24, 2011.

  1. Who is it? I'm always curious about these kinda 'not important but just so you know' tidbits.

    The youngest I can find is Duncan Siemens who was born September 7, 1993

    Any younger ones?

    They always say "he will be among the youngest" but I have yet to see anyone younger than Siemens. I'm sure there is though, just not sure who.

    One of the youngest swedes that could be considered for this draft is Fredrik Händemark, born 27 augusti. He is a real hidden gem, wonder if anybody have noticed him, a big center with good offensive qualities. Would be impressed if he gets picked, since he haven't got much exposure or hype but could turn in to a great player.

    179th on the midterm rankings from CSS.

    I read something on him earlier this season, cant remember where.


    6'4" 180lbs defensman who can skate.....might we worth a late round flyer for deep NHL teams that can afford to let prospects play 4 years of NCAA and then some minor seasoning.

    If a kid that big can skate its worth taking a 6th or 7th round pick on them. Might pay off.

    No its the 15th.

    Yep. There's 2 franchises that deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence.

    "D NEAL GOFF – STILLWATER HS
    BORN: 09-15-1993
    VITALS: 6’-5†/ 185 LBS
    STATS: 25 GP 3 G 8 A 11 PTS 26 PIM +7
    NOTES: The big guy, while he looks like a gangly uncoordinated kid trying to grow into his body, is also an accomplished track and field star for Stillwater. His USHL rights are owned by the Fargo Force and he could play a year there before moving on to Division I college hockey. The youngest draft eligible as his birthday falls right on the cut off day for the 2011 draft, one day later and he would be 2012 eligible.

    SCOUTING REPORT: A strong shutdown defender…uses his reach and mobility to close off lanes and box out would be attackers…shows fast footwork and the ability to close gaps quickly…reads the developing play and is quick to react…surprisingly good all-encompassing mobility especially for his size…his stride could still use some technical coaching due to some unnecessary movements…needs to pack on a good 20-30 pounds of muscle before college…has very limited offensive upside.

    COACH QUOTE, Phil Housley: “There’s so much upside to his game and he really wants to learn.â€

    DRAFT WATCH: Mid-to-late round draft pick candidate. Goff is pretty new to the limelight for draft prospects but under ex-NHL defenseman Phil Housley his development can go nowhere but up."

  20. If that kid went to School in Illinois he'd be a Junior in high school right now instead of a senior.

    He'll either stay at Stillwater HS or go to Fargo Force of USHL (they drafted Goff in 93 futures draft 2 years ago when he was in 9th grade)
