NHL Draft Prospects:
Harris (2002, Forward): "Sammy has been very impressive in camp. He is very versatile and can play in every situation. Sammy also has an element of grit to his game as well."
Healey (2004, Defenseman): "Ryan has high end ability and will get a lot of attention for the upcoming Draft. He can carry the puck out very well and has great offensive instincts."
Rud (2003, Defenseman): "Max is a big body and has very good hockey IQ. He can make difficult breakouts look easy at times. Max will need to continue to work on his quickness, but has big upside."
Zlinka (2004, Forward): "Adam is a strong 200-foot player that skates well. I’m sure there will be an adjustment period for him to learn the North American style of hockey, but we feel he’ll have a strong year as a [2004 birth year]."
