The diminutive forward is already 30-points clear of second place in scoring, and a veteran goaltender will be tasked with attempting to keep him off the scoresheet in weekend action. Also in this NHL Prospect Faceoff, Brendan Lemieux, Jack Roslovic, and Jansen Harkins from the Winnipeg Jets organization are all in action this weekend. Finally, two Swedish defensemen with vastly different skill sets are chronicled in SHL action. Read more»

The World Junior Championship, however, being the foremost showcase for hockey’s top prospects, allows for some leniency in those dates. And while some of the most impressive individual performances at the 2016 tournament were from undrafted players (who are ineligible for the HF honor), there was plenty of standout performances from previously drafted players. Of course, exclusion from national teams also sparked some tremendous play from top-level prospects. Read more»
