Diminutive forward with outstanding skating ability and good offensive vision. Lack of size and strength could hold him back, but he has the skill to drive offense at the pro level.

Aatu Räty

A play-driving offensive center who plays a solid 200-foot game. A dual-threat because he can make plays and finish them. Great skating ability combined with high-end puck-skills makes him a threat all over the ice. Needs to work on his consistency and discipline. Projects to become a very good top-six center.

A dynamic skater with excellent acceleration and top-end speed, edgework and agility is close to elite. Tough to knock off the puck, can fight through checks, and has elite puck-handling skills and scoring ability. Still, his vision and decision-making as a playmaker are questioned, and he is considered a boom-or-bust prospect with consistency concerns at both ends of the ice. He can potentially be a top-line center with PP1 usage if his all-around game develops. His floor is a bottom-six up-tempo center that can be relied on to kill penalties.

Fraser Minten

North-South center with above-average intelligence and defensive abilities. Needs to round out his puck skills and add some finesse, but could become a middle-six forward at the NHL level.

Easton Cowan

By |2024-03-26T13:31:26-04:00March 26th, 2024|

Cowan is a high-energy playmaker who plays with significant grit; with added polish and muscle, he projects as an intense depth creator in the NHL.

Zach Dean

By |2024-03-23T19:02:26-04:00March 23rd, 2024|

Hard working forward who plays the game at a fast pace. Good puck handling skills and vision in the offensive zone are the hallmarks of his game but he is a committed defensive player as well.

Henri Nikkanen

By |2024-03-23T18:49:51-04:00March 23rd, 2024|

An athletic playmaking centre with good size who sees the ice well. Competes hard and is reliable defensively. Foot speed and skating need improvement at the pro level—a long-term project with limited fantasy upside.
