New York Islanders GM Garth Snow continued his tendency to take NCAA-bound players with mid to late-round picks at the 2014 draft, selecting a pair of overagers in Devon Toews and Kyle Schempp. The Islanders have had success drafting NCAA players, with recent picks Kyle Okposo, Brock Nelson, and Anders Lee all becoming impact players for the Islanders. Although the Islanders tend to favour North American players, they selected a pair of European netminders in Linus Soderstrom and Ilya Sorokin. They represent the future in goal for the Islanders, along with collegiate netminders Eamon McAdam and Stephon Williams. Read more»

Florida Panthers defenseman Aaron Ekblad has played a key role in his team’s surprising push for the final wild card playoff spot in the NHL’s Eastern Conference and as a result has all but closed the gap with Nashville Predators‘ left wing Filip Forsberg — the leading scorer among rookies — in the February Hockey’s Future Calder Trophy poll.

Traditionally a weak area for Russian teams, goaltending is an area where that country has managed to catch up and more consistently develop good players. Two of the best NHL goalies – Semyon Varlamov (COL) and Sergei Bobrovsky (CBJ) – are from Russia, and there are a few more younger netminders who can repeat those achievements should the youngsters continue to progress as they are doing now.
