NHL Draft Risers

The World Championship saw a good performance by Marco Kasper. Points weren’t the only factor. You must make allowances for the fact that his team wasn’t particularly strong.

It was beneficial for all of us to see him in a fresh setting, and he demonstrated his high level of adaptability.

NHL Draft Prospect Rankings

The popularity of Jimmy Snuggerud has been rising. He did play, so it ticks a box, but that isn’t the reason. I got to witness his mental game off the ice at the NHL combine, and it was strong. He already had excellent equipment on the ice.

In my evaluations, Ryan Chesley is rising. Many people think he doesn’t have much offensive potential, but he skates really well and has excellent coverage and defensive play overall.

Some teams may be selecting a player with good value if he can produce some offense, as I believe he can.

NHL Draft Fallers

Ty Nelson suffered a severe fall. Despite being a smaller defenseman, he has excellent strength and an excellent offensive game. 

Since his skating isn’t outstanding and probably never will be, he might play a different kind of role if he ever makes it to the NHL.

Jiri Kulich’s performance at the U18s was phenomenal, and it carried over to the World Championship. But after that, his productivity decreased. for a number of reasons. 

Towards the season’s end, he was injured. He has fantastic shooting and is a strong two-way player. Is he in the center? He appears that way so far, but things could change. There aren’t many natural centers in this draft.

Undecided

What to make of Stephen Halliday is a mystery to me. This USHL season, he scored 95 points while playing for Dubuque. 

His fourth season in the league was this one. He is a 6-4 center, and you get exactly what you see. He won’t become much better, and his skating will probably set him back. 

19 years old and destined for Ohio State I gave him no ranking.
