Seth Jones - Maximizing Appreciating Assets

2019 NHL Draft Preview

Steve Kournianos | 06/07/2018 | Nashville |


NASHVILLE (The Draft Analyst) — As the scouting community starts wrapping up its work for the 2018 NHL Draft, the early summer is the perfect time to begin the slow transition towards shifting focus on the prominent prospects for next year’s draft in Vancouver. Once considered a topic not ripe for discussion, the 2019 draft season is only a few weeks away from darting out the gate, both in terms of individual assessments and an analysis of the group as a collective.

In about a month, scouting the 2019 draft crop will move up the priority list from “secondary” to “primary”. Still, there’s enough evidence right now from this past season to make coherent analyses on the group of players who should either challenge or cement a spot in one of the first two rounds of next year’s draft in Vancouver.

Although it’s still early, there already are several story lines pertaining to next year’s group that began percolating last season, beginning with American-born super center Jack Hughes, whose brother Quinn in about three weeks should be a top pick in this year’s draft. Hughes is both dynamic and explosive, and he clearly was the best offensive threat as he split the season between the U.S. National Team Development Program’s under-17 and under-18 squads. Most importantly, however, is that the young Orlando native became the first player since Auston Matthews in 2015 to lead the under-18 world championship in scoring before being draft eligible.

Hughes, however, wasn’t the only 2019 draft prospect that tore up the international circuit. Power forward Raphael Lavoie of the QMJHL’s Halifax Mooseheads scored five goals in five games for Team Canada, while Slovak Maxim Cajkovic and Finland’s Kappo Kakko joined Hughes as the three 2019 eligibles who cracked the tournament’s top five in scoring. But not every notable prospect for next year’s draft was on display at the under-18’s, as many teams were involved in their league postseasons and could not afford to release their top players to the national teams.

In terms of defensemen, the 2019 draft is loaded on the left side, beginning with WHL’er Bowen Byram of the Vancouver Giants. The Finns should return at least two defensemen to the draft’s first round in Anttoni Honka and Mikko Kokkonen, while the Americans have a quartet of quality blueliners who should play in the big international events in Drew Helleson, Cam York, Case McCarthy and Alex Vlasic.

OOOH yeah life goes on, long after the thrill of Vinny is gone

It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.

Now, Lajoie is an imbecile, a cretin and a plagiarist, who to use author Dany Laferrière's deliciously withering expression, "lives beyond his intellectual means."

...as serious as a poutine shortage in Chicoutimi during a curling bonspiel...

Seven prospects who raised 2019 NHL Draft stock at Hlinka Gretzky Cup


EDMONTON -- Here are seven prospects eligible for the 2019 NHL Draft whose stock rose at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup, the annual under-18 tournament that ended Saturday with Canada's 6-2 victory against Sweden in the gold medal game (prospects in alphabetical order).



Philip Broberg, D, Sweden
An excellent skater, the defenseman (6-foot-3, 199 pounds) wowed the crowd with his sweeping rushes and his effective breakouts. He scored three goals, including one on the power play, in five games.

"He solidified himself as being one of the top prospects available (in 2019)," said Dan Marr, director of NHL Central Scouting. "He'll definitely be in the conversation as far as the first few picks go."

Broberg, 17, likely will start the season with AIK in Sweden's junior league this season.



Maxim Cajkovic, RW, Slovakia
The speedy forward (5-11, 185) showed solid puck possession skills. He had four points (two goals, two assists) in four games.

"I'm fast, but I need to improve my skating every day," said Cajkovic. "There's a lot of room for me to improve right now. I think I'm getting bigger and better, that's important for me."

Cajkovic, 17, will play this season for Saint John of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, which selected him with the No. 1 pick of the Canadian Hockey League import draft.



Dylan Cozens, C, Canada
A talented playmaker with size (6-3, 181) and speed, Cozens had five points (two goals, three assists) in five games.

"He was one of our best players," Canada coach Andre Tourigny said. "He's really quick on recovering loose pucks. He has a big body, he can win faceoffs. There are a lot of reasons to put him out there."

Cozens, 17, will play for Lethbridge of the Western Hockey League this season. He was the WHL rookie of the year last season with 53 points (21 goals, 33 assists) in 57 games.



Kirby Dach, C, Canada
The big center (6-3, 199) had seven points (two goals, five assists) in five games, and appears to have all the tools necessary to play a major role in the NHL.

"I want to become a dual threat out there instead of just looking for the pass all the time," said Dach, 17, who had 46 points (seven goals, 39 assists) in 52 games with Saskatoon of the WHL last season. "I tend to think pass first, but one of the areas I want to try work on is my shooting in order to become a more dangerous player all around."



Vasili Podkolzin, RW, Russia
Podkolzin (6-1, 183) scored a goal in every game for Russia, including a hat trick to help Russia win the bronze medal with a 5-4 victory against the United States. He led the tournament with eight goals and his 11 points tied for the tournament lead with Canada's Alexis Lafreniere.

"A lot of the Russian players have upgraded their status," Marr said. "It's such a big country, so it can be hard to see them play a lot and in different environments. A lot of those kids still have to get sorted out, but it's a deeper pool for Russia this year."

Podkolzin, 17, will start the season with SKA St. Petersburg 2 in Russia's junior league.



Victor Soderstrom, D, Sweden
Soderstrom (5-11, 179) was one of Sweden's best defensemen before getting injured against Switzerland in Sweden's second game. He finished the tournament with two points (one goal, one assist).

"He has offensive skills. He's the guy I trust on the power play on the blue line," Sweden coach Magnus Havelid said. "He has to improve his defensive game, but compared to one year ago he's taken a huge step forward."

Soderstrom, 17, likely will start the season with Brynas in Sweden's junior league.



Ryan Suzuki, C, Canada
Ryan (6-0, 178) is similar to his older brother, Nick Suzuki (Vegas Golden Knights), because of his uncanny intelligence on the ice. He can find his teammates despite limited options and skates well enough to escape sticky situations. He finished second on Canada with eight points (one goal, seven assists).

"I'd say my biggest strength is my hockey sense," said Suzuki. "I think I'm a little bit a better skater than my brother, but he has a better shot and he knows how to put the puck in the net. We're both smart players and we see the ice really well."

Nick, 17, was selected by Barrie with the No. 1 pick of the 2017 OHL Draft and had 44 points (14 goals, 30 assists) in 64 games.

https://dobberprospects.com/2019-nhl-dr ... gust-2018/


Kaapo Kakko / RW / 02-13-01 / 6’1 187lbs / Liiga
The Patrik Laine to Hughes’ Matthews. If this was a different year, the Finnish winger would be sitting pretty in the pole position. Kaapo blends size, speed, finishing ability and terrific vision. Soft touch for a big man. Massive upside as a complete point-producing winger. He’ll be a front-line scoring threat for years to come.


Bowen Byram LHD / 07-13-01 / 6’ 179lbs / WHL
An explosive skater who can act as a one-man breakout. He blends his terrific acceleration and north-south speed with lateral edge work and play creation through the neutral zone. Owns a heavy shot that is effective in all situations. Continues to improve his gap control and defensive awareness. Can get caught at times, but you take the good with the bad. An efficient power play quarterback in the making.

Vasili Podkolzin, RW / 06-24-01 / 5’11 165lbs / MHL
Showed the world what type of talent he owns at the Hlinka in August. Podkolzin is shifty, creative and dangerous. He can split the defense and finish it himself or draw coverage and deftly distribute to a cutting teammate. He’ll produce a ton of points in the MHL this season. How teams view his KHL wait time will play a sizable role in where he’s selected next June. A potential high-end point producer at the NHL-level. I don’t love comparisions, but I see enough Nikita Kucherov in him to say it out loud.
