The 2014 NHL Draft is still two months away, but it is never too early to take a look at some of the prospects eligible for this year's draft that have been passed over in previous drafts. This edition of "Off the Radar" looks at five prospects that could finally have their names called over the course of the two-day draft taking place in Philadelphia, PA in late June.
After opening a 3-1 lead in the first period, Team USA cruised to their fifth gold medal in the past six years at the 2014 edition of the IIHF U18 World Championship. Forward Auston Matthews was the scoring hero for the U.S. as he scored two goals and added an assist in the win over the Czech Republic.
Winning gold was the goal for Team Canada at the 2014 IIHF U18 World Championship, but the defending gold medalists instead had to settle for bronze this time around. Canada defeated Sweden 3-1 to take the bronze medal game in Lappeenranta, Finland, a game in which the Canadians were outshot by the Swedes, 39-26.
