All year long, the London Knights talked about how, despite a guaranteed berth in the 2014 Memorial Cup Tournament as the host squad, the team wanted to enter the tournament through the proverbial front door. When the Guelph Storm slammed that door shut with a 4-1 series victory on April 11th, it changed the way the team needed to approach the finals.

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.

Although there have been complaints in recent years related to Team Canada's goaltending at some of the World Junior tournaments, there aren't likely to be many when it comes to the goaltending that Canada received from Mason McDonald at the 2014 IIHF U18 World Championship.
