Following a lackluster 2010-11 season that saw the New Jersey Devils miss the postseason, good luck befell the organization as they won the lottery for the upcoming 2011 NHL Draft. Despite having only a 3.6 per cent chance of winning, the Devils moved up four positions in the first round, from eighth to fourth.

There is no line in the CHL that has been more dangerous than the London Knights’ troublesome trio of Mitch Marner (TOR), Christian Dvorak (ARI) and Matthew Tkachuk (2016).

That isn’t an opinion, it is fact. And they have the numbers to back it up: the linemates combined for 129 points in just 18 OHL playoff games, and each player topped 100 points in the regular season. Read more»

Year after year for the past decade, the Edmonton Oilers have added top talents via the draft. Rather than building an enviable prospect pool, the team has only succeeded in constructing unbalanced rosters that finish near the bottom of the league standings. Still, the 2015 Draft gifted the Oilers one of the world’s best players, and several other young men who have learned the NHL game the hard way are coming into the primes of their careers. Will the supporting cast be enough to change the script in 2016-17? Only time will tell, but the Hockey’s Future prospect awards for 2015-16 serve to highlight some of the more encouraging signs from a mostly disappointing campaign.
