Ah, I misunderstood.

Still, off the top of my head, Czarnik, O'Neill, and Dowd are the older prospects. Vey might be as well. I'm pretty sure Weal and Forbort are pretty close in age compared to ND, so it's not like he has a huge age advantage. Between professional experience and international experience (like Gravel and Forbort on the WJC side), I don't think he has a huge advantage either.

However, at camp this month, Deslauriers looked like Martinez and Nolan last year, in terms of physically built, but little visible baby fat. I think he'll turn some heads this year.
