However guys like Coyle, Zucker, Bjugstad, Watson, Etem etc won't be eligible any longer if I'm not mistaken. I mean he will have to compete against other first rounders left off the last team who have similar games like Noessen and Biggs. But USA might take Hank because he's more likely to be a returning player the following year. They're losing a ton of guys and they'll need that experience in 13.
Plus there will be a ton of tiny guys like Grimaldi, McColgan and Trochek.
Galchenyuk might be in the NHL.
I'd wager Hank makes it.
