While he might not sport the offensive credentials that some of his fellow defensemen in the 2013 NHL Draft class possess, U.S. NTDP defender Steve Santini has shown enough in other areas of his game to be considered a potential first round pick in this draft.

The 2012-13 season started off well for a few German prospects with NHL ambitions. But as it has worn on and culminated in a U18 World Championship tournament where Germany only managed to win one game – albeit the decisive class retainer over Slovakia – it seems as if the competition for this NHL Draft coming out of other countries has just become a tad too much for this year's German prospects to handle.

After 2012 saw a first ever Stanley Cup for the Los Angeles Kings franchise, 2013 brought forth a noble defense of the title but elimination in the Conference Finals by the Chicago Blackhawks.
