Despite yet another gold medal at the U18 World Championship, this time around in Zug, Switzerland, the U.S. NTDP saw relatively few players taken at the 2015 NHL Draft. To a degree that can be accredited to having a number of key players on the team who will first be eligible for the 2016 draft, including no less than captain Luke Kunin, top scorer Auston Matthews, Matt Tkachuk, Clayton Keller, Chad Krys, and Jamie McAvoy. As many as three of these players are looking like surefire first round picks for next summer’s draft. Read more»

Dylan Strome - Arizona Coyotes

With the exception of a two-month period where he was thrust into the role of first-line center due to an injury to Erie Otters’ star forward Connor McDavid, Dylan Strome played in the shadow of McDavid over the course of the 2014-15 season. But Strome will be stepping out of that shadow in the not too distant future after having been chosen third overall in the 2015 NHL Draft by the Arizona Coyotes.
