3rd round dark horses? I mentioned Bournival earlier. Q DF Gauthier-Leduc might be a good bet here too. Q players seem to mature later than O and W players (true of Finns it seems too) so a lot of Q players could be considered darkhorses. This makes the Q hard to scout (this is also a partial response to an earlier question). I'm betting that one of the goalies who is scheduled to go in this range will become a star but who? Maybe the Finn, Autik???? Also from Europe? Marcel Noebbels from Germany and Sorten Olden from Norway (playing in Sweden).
I have seen Noebels on several occasion and consider him personally as interesting sleeper.
I expected much more from Kühnhackl, I don´t think that he is top 6 forward. I would not select him in first two rounds. Still he has some potential, excellent size, solid skater, some scoring touch.
