If there's a kid in this draft born in MN, that went to Shattuck, committed to one of these top schools I'd draft him w/o even having to scout him. Bonus points if he has NHL bloodlines. (Zach Parise is an example of this formula).

Zach Stepan is from Minnesota, went to Shattuck... and has commited to Ohio State University for 13-14. Well, that's two out of three (or three out of four).
