2015 NHL Draft Review: White, Roslovic top NTDP draft selections

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»

2015 NHL Draft: St. Louis Blues draft review

VInce Dunn - St. Louis Blues

After replenishing their prospect pool with ten selections in the 2014 NHL Draft, the St. Louis Blues used the 2015 NHL Draft to beef up their prospect depth at key positions. The Blues only have three goaltenders and three centers in the pipeline, and they used three of their six picks on those positions. Even with goaltenders Jordan Binnington and Ville Husso looking like legitimate prospects, at least, and Ivan Barbashev and Robby Fabbri being two centers who might be ready to make an impact soon, the Blues had plenty of room and reason to add some much needed depth to complement their best prospects.

St. Louis Blues 2015 NHL Draft Preview

Robby Fabbri - St. Louis Blues

Judging by the success of the St. Louis Blues both in the NHL and at the NHL Entry Draft, 2015 has very little meaning in terms of prospects. The Blues seemed to do well at the 2014 NHL Draft and have replenished the pipeline in a big way. Not only did they draft ten players last year, but they came away with some of the best potential steals of the draft, including Ivan Barbashev of the QMJHL‘s Moncton Wildcats in the second round (33rd overall).

For the rest of the league, the 2015 NHL Draft now looms large on the calendar, taking place June 26th and 27th at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida. Read more»

2010 NHL Draft: St. Louis Blues found franchise cornerstones in 2010 draft

Vladimir Tarasenko - St. Louis Blues

While the 2010 NHL Draft was hit or miss as a whole for the St. Louis Blues, their top two picks in Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko have turned into franchise players who should have a major role to play moving forward. They are two of the best young players in the NHL and have proven to be two of the Blues best draft picks over the past ten years.
