    • Zayne Parekh looks legit.


      • Scoring totals for top NTDP U18 players against NCAA Di opponents:


        Gabriel Perreault 5'11 LW/C 16-16-15-31 +15

        Will Smith 6'0 C 16-9-20-29 +12

        Ryan Leonard 5'10 RW/C 16-13-14-27 +13

        Oliver Moore 5'11 C 14-9-12-21 +11

        Danny Nelson LW 6'3 16-5-7-12 +4


        Aram Minnetian 6'0 RD 16-4-7-11 +4

        Zeev Buium 6'0 LD 16-1-9-10 +10

        Drew Fortescue 6'3 LD 16-0-9-9 -2

        Paul Fischer 6'1 LD 11-0-8-8 +2

        Will Smith is going to be something special. One of my main scouting focuses now days is on pro-translatability, where you have on the one hand prospects who are immensely skilled but are coach's nightmares (Gleb Trikozov, Fabian Lysell) and on the other hand, players who are coach's dreams but maybe not the most skilled in the world (Cole Sillinger, Liam Ohgren come to mind). But then every once in a while you have those rare breeds who bring the best of both worlds (Lucas Raymond, Logan Cooley are prime examples). Smith falls into the third category. Immensely skilled and not at all afraid to use it where appropriate, but knows how to pick his spots and when to make the simple play. Uses his linemates fantastically well, both directly creating chances for them, but also putting them in positions to use their skill and make plays themselves. Somewhat reminiscent of Logan Cooley; Cooley is a little craftier with his puckhandling, but Smith is a little bigger and I think a little bit of a better playmaker.

        Gabe Perreault is kind of the inverse of Smith, and perhaps this is part of why they're so perfect together. Incredibly skilled, but pro-translatability is a major question mark. Kid loves to create his own offence and often takes a lot of risks to do so, but up to the NCAA level, he's been tremendously successful in doing so.

        Ryan Leonard is interesting. First and foremost he's a meat-and-potatoes two-way forward. He's a grinder, gets around the net, can kill penalties, but I also think his skill is under-rated. A player that can create his own odd man rushes and then can beat guys one on one is going to be a pretty intriguing prospect.

        Oliver Moore is the most under-rated of the bunch. Just by virtue of being a pure center he gets stuck on the second line behind Smith, and they very often roll out the big line of Perreault-Smith-Leonard all together while Moore centers the second line with much lesser offensive talents. Very fast skater with high hockey IQ and some pretty good skill makes him a virtual lock to be at least a useful PKer and bottom six forward at the NHL level, something along the lines of an Andrew Cogliano. Considering that's sort of a floor, and something like Mike Richards would be a ceiling, NHL teams are going to have their eyes on this player starting around the middle of the 1st round.

        On defense, I'm obsessed with Aram Minnetian of late. Have been for a while now actually. Utterly dynamic; I couldn't name another defenseman in this draft I'd rather have carrying the puck through the neutral zone. Escapabilty off the charts. As a converted forward, he's very much a work in progress not only in the defensive zone, but also in other areas specific to defensemen. If he was playing for almost any ordinary CHL or USHL team instead of an all-star team, he would almost certainly run the top powerplay, but Zeev Buium is a one-man circus tightrope walking the offensive blueline (on par with the like of Heimosalmi and Luke Hughes in their draft years). Buium usually plays the left point on the top powerplay, opposite to Will Smith. Minnetian has a ton of room to grow as he continues to learn to be a full-time defenseman, and so his all-around upside is simply off the charts,. Buium is a late birthday and not draft eligible until 2024, but I'm starting to think he will go very high in that draft. On top of his offensive zone abilities, his +10 rating seems to support the eye test when it suggests he's very sound defensively as well.

        Paul Fischer reminds me a fair amount of Ryan Chesley - decent size at around 6' or 6'1, and a solid, intelligent two-way defenseman, but I think I like Fischer's offensive upside a little better than Chesley's.

        • Check out Nela Lopušanová!

 hockey player profile of Nela Lopusanova, 2008-02-26 Zilina, SVK Slovakia. Most recently in the 19U AAA (W) with Bishop Kearney Selects 19U AAA. Complete player biography and stats.

          At only 14 years old, she was the MVP and scoring leader of the women's WJC. She currently plays in the top U16 Slovakian league and has a points-per-game pace good for 2nd place. That's the top league, not the top women's league. It's the same league that last year's 1st overall NHL draft pick Juraj Slafkovsky played in at that age. And her pace is better than his was.

          She's also as big at 14 as Cole Caufield is at 22..

              • 2024

                1. Macklin Celebrini - Two way center in the mould of Toews or Bergeron. Highly skilled and creative but maybe not as dynamic as you'd hope for a first overall pick.
                2. Konsta Helenius - Celebrini is more mature, physically and stylistically, but Helenius might be the higher long-term upside player.

                  • 1. Connor Bedard - What more is there to say at this point? The best prospect since Connor McDavid.

                    2. Leo Carlsson - I still think he's probably a center long-term, but he's gonna be a bit of a project to reach his full potential. Needs to work on his attention to details and intensity off the puck, particularly on the defensive side of play. Not as NHL-ready or translatable as Fantilli or Dvorsky, but I'm trying to rank for when they're 25, and if he pans out, the upside is tremendous. The way he seamlessly blends skill and power is reminiscent of a young Jack Eichel or Mika Zibanejad.

                    3. Adam Fantilli - Always in the middle of things defensively, constantly disrupting all over the ice. Elite skating and 200-foot IQ combined with a physical, hard-hitting mentality and a well-rounded offensive toolkit, make Fantilli about as safe a pick as you can get to be at least a 2nd line center.

                    4. Dalibor Dvorsky - Even though Fantilli and Carlsson are quicker, more dynamic skaters, Dvorsky's intensity and ferocity in puck battles make the former two seem lackadaisical by comparison. Not to say Fantilli lacks intensity, but he often seems more inclined to read the play and let it come to him, whereas Dvorsky is a rabid dog on a bone. I just think even at his floor, you're getting a hell of a player that every team will covet come playoffs. Ceiling could be pretty special. Remember what Kopitar was down low for the Kings' on their two Cup runs?

                    5. Will Smith - Controls the pace of the game. Has this uncanny knack for casually strolling into soft spots in coverage with the puck, drawing defenders into him where he can burn them with a deke or find the open pass. Especially with Perreault and Leonard on his flanks, defenders would often have to show too much respect to his passing game and he could sometimes just walk up the open lane.

                    6. Matvei Michkov - I said I'd always go purely by hockey in my rankings, but EP has him listed at 148 lbs and he wasn't at the combine. So many red flags and too many phenomenal prospects at the top of this draft.

                    7. Daniil But - I've been saying I think he's a center, but in that regard it would be nice if he passed the puck a little more often. I suppose at the MHL level if you can dominate entire opposing teams yourself, why not go for it? Could still use his frame better, but already the combination of stick skills and brute power is electrifying. Stick skill and shot are his best attributes, but I don't mind his skating at all. Looks lanky and awkward, but the control, balance and evasiveness he has on his edges suggests skating could help him to be an offensive difference-maker in the long run.

                    8. Ryan Leonard - Power forward with smarts, skills and combativeness. Sometimes you forget how good his hands are until he does something extraordinary one-on-one. Only concern I can see is how's the vision / play-creation? Can seem to have a little tunnel-vision at times.

                    9. Nate Danielson - Smooth-skating power center. A true "coach's dream," he attacks north-south, he drives the net, he plays heavy, he plays fast, he's responsible defensively and strong on draws.

                    10. Eduard Sale - Comparison: Bobby Ryan. Despite the questions about intensity, the combination of tools (speed, shot, hands), IQ, vision in a 6'2 frame makes the upside just too good to pass up after the sure-things are gone. Even when he doesn't look involved in the game for long stretches, you blink and he's scored a couple goals.

                    11. David Reinbacher - Looks like a surefire two-way top four D, with some room for offensive upside.

                    12. Mikhail Gulyayev - Highest offensive upside defenseman in the draft. Might not be the best all-around defenseman in the draft, but he'll be an analytic darling the way he dominates zone exits and drives scoring chances for.

                    13. Zach Benson - High IQ, average skating on a small frame always reminds me of Mikael Granlund. He was a good player for along stretch. Benson is expected to be a better defensive forward.

                    14. Dimitri Simashev - Reminds me of Shakir Mukhamadullin in a lot of ways. Although Mukhamadullin is a great skater in his own right, Simashev's skating is on another level. His defensive game certainly isn't as polished as Mukhamadullin's at the same age and he doesn't look as poised on the powerplay. Not as safe and steady a pick, but Simashev's combination of raw tools, size and physical edge make the upside pretty hard to ignore.

                    15. Matthew Wood

                    16. Colby Barlow

                    17. Gabe Perreault

                    18. Oliver Moore

                    19. Tom Willander

                    20. Samuel Honzek

                    21. Axel Sandin-Pellikka

                    22. Lukas Dragicevic

                    23. Brayden Yager

                    24. David Edstrom

                    25. Otto Stenberg

                    26. Quentin Musty

                    27. Riley Heidt

                    28. Andrew Cristall

                    29. Kasper Halttunen

                    30. Max Strbak​​

                    31. Juraj Pekarcik

                    32. Theo Lindstein

                    • 1. Chicago - Connor Bedard (Director of Amateur Scouting: Mike Doneghey) - Doesn't matter though, they're taking Bedard

                      2. Anaheim - Adam Fantilli (Directer of Player Evaluation: Bruce Franklin) - Again, probably wouldn't matter much who the scouts are behind the pick, Fantilli is the guy.

                      3. Columbus - Leo Carlsson (DAS: Ville Siren, ADAS: Trevor Timmins) - Timmins took Caufield early pretty recently, so there's some precedent for NTDP here, but Kekelainen seems to actively avoid drafting from that program. Besides, Carlsson seems to be the consensus BPA here.

                      4. San Jose - Will Smith (DAS: Chris Morehouse, DPP: Scott Fitzgerald) - Boston drafted incessantly out of the USHL and NTDP while Fitzgerald was there, so hard to imagine Smith falling past them here.

                      5. Montreal - Dalibor Dvorsky (DAS/DPP: Martin LaPointe, co-DAS: Nick Bobrov) - Maybe this is my personal bias showing, but they did take a Slovak first overall and another in the first round last year. Dvorsky feels like a Martin LaPointe kinda pick, although the same could be said for Leonard.

                      6. Arizona - Matthew Wood (GM: Bill Armstrong, DAS: Darryl Plandowski, ADAS: Ryan Jankowski) - These are tricky picks to predict. Between three old school Canadians at the helm, the tendencies scream CHL, but it seems a little early for any of the CHLers here. A trade-down seems likely, but if they're going to pick then Wood is my best guess, as both head scouts are based out of Western Canada, and the last two times Armstrong went outside of CHL in the first were collegiate players Logan Cooley and Tage Thompson.

                      7. Philadelphia - Ryan Leonard (AGM: Brent Flahr, DHO: Tom Minton) - This was the easiest decision since the first couple picks. Tom Minton has a close connection to the NTDP, Flahr has a long history drafting from the program, and the Torts-coached Flyers say they're looking for compete above all else in a draft pick. Not to mention he's the pretty clear BPA here.

                      8. Washington - Matvei Michkov (AGM: Ross Mahoney, DAS: Steve Bowman, DHO: Kris Wagner) All of the top guys running the draft have been there many years and had a ton of success, particularly out of Russia.

                      9. Detroit - David Reinbacher (DAS: Kris Draper, DES: Hakan Andersson) - They've picked overwhelmingly out of Europe with early picks since Yzerman took over. Mostly Sweden, but Seider came out of another secondary hockey market in Germany.

                      10. St. Louis - Colby Barlow (DAS: Tony Feltrin) - In 1999 Tony Feltrin and the Isles had three picks in the top ten and took all three out of the OHL. The Blues have also been hard after these heavy forwards lately (Snuggerud, Bolduc, Neighbors).

                      11. Vancouver - Tom Willander (GM: Patrik Allvin, DAS: Todd Harvey) - I have a feeling Gradin is going to be Allvin's number one guy. Looking like he hit it out of the park with another Swedish defenseman in Pettersson last year. Usually when a player skyrockets up Bob McKenzie's final ranking, they end up going even earlier on draft day.

                      12. Arizona - Nate Danielson - Again, the smart money is on a big forward out of Western Canada here.

                      13. Buffalo - Zach Benson (DAS Jerry Forton) - They have a pretty heavy core in place and went all skill with three firsts last year, including Benson's linemate Savoie at 9th overall.

                      14. Pittsburgh - Oliver Moore (DAS: Nick Pryor) - I mentioned before the Minnesota connection with their new head scout. Pretty good argument that Moore is BPA here, although Dubas doesn't have much of a track record drafting NTDP.

                      15. Nashville - Dimitri Simashev (AGM: Jeff Kealty) - Trotz said they wanna swing for the fences, well here you go.

                      16. Calgary - Gabe Perreault (DAS: Tod Button) - Arguably their two best picks under Button have been Adam Fox straight out of NTDP, and Matthew Tkachuk a year removed from it.

                      17. Detroit - Axel Sandin-Pellikka

                      18. Winnipeg - Eduard Sale (DAS: Mark Hillier) - They don't mind taking flawed players with upside later in the first round.

                      19. Chicago - Brayden Yager

                      20. Seattle - Samuel Honzek (DAS: Robert Kron) - A strong European scouting staff but so far they've played it safe, picking mostly from North America. I'm sure covid didn't help. A European via CHL would be a great way to dip their toe in the water.

                      21. Minnesota - Daniil But (DAS: Judd Brackett)

                      22. Philadelphia - Gavin Brindley - Flahr drafts out of USHL and NTDP as much as anyone. I thought we were out of NTDPers for the first round but then I remembered Brindley. Seems like a Daniel Briere pick.

                      23. Rangers - Quentin Musty (DAS: John Lilley)

                      24. Nashville - Otto Stenberg

                      25. St. Louis - Calum Ritchie

                      26. San Jose - Mikhail Gulyayev

                      27. Colorado - Theo Lindstein (DAS: Wade Klippenstein, DHO: Scott Harris)

                      28. Toronto - Riley Heidt (DAS: Wes Clark, DPP: Dave Morrison)

                      29. St. Louis - Bradley Nadeau

                      30. Carolina - Andrew Cristall (AGM: Darren Yorke)

                      31. Colorado - Ethan Gauthier

                      32. Vegas - Oliver Bonk (DPP: Vaughn Karpan, ADPP: Bob Lowes, DAS: Scott Luce)

                        • 1. Ivan Demidov​

                          2. Macklin Celebrini C 5'11, 180 - Elite two-way forward with a mature, pro-translatable game and some high-end offensive playmaking and creativity, just maybe not the most dynamic offensive threat. Comparables: Jonathan Toews / Patrice Bergeron.

                          3. Cole Eiserman LW 5'11, 190 - Explosive, powerful athlete. Hyper-competitive. Tenacious after pucks. Elite goal-scorer. Unstoppable from inside the tops of the faceoff circles at the junior level. Comparable: Peter Bondra​

                          4. Sam Dickinson

                          5. Aron Kiviharju LD 5'10, 165 - Small defenseman and not the most dynamic skater, but he's incredibly smart and skilled. Comparables: Nicklas Lidstrom, Adam Fox.

                          6. Cayden Lindstrom LW/C 6'5, 190 - Huge power forward with skill, quickness, and playmaking ability. Comparables: Tage Thompson, Quentin Byfield.​

                          7. Konsta Helenius C 5'10, 170 - Simply an electric offensive weapon. Celebrini was the best under-ager at the U18s, but he's more physically developed and plays a more mature two-way game. Helenius drives offense like few prospects in this draft, although I wonder if he doesn't play a little too much on the perimeter. Has a bit of a physical edge but it's inconsistent, and he still needs to do a lot of filling out.

                          8. Beckett Seneke RW 6'2, 180

                          9. Cole Beaudoin

                          10. Henry Mews RD 6', 185 - He's a project with elite skating and high-end tools, but he's a wild stallion that needs to be reigned in right now.
