Part 2 (http://hockeyprospecthandbook.blogsp...ctober_31.html)

However, one prospect I would like to comment on is Kerby Rychel. This prospect is one I had a debate with other online hockey fans. One poster told me something on the lines of "since when has a player scored 40+ goals before their draft year and NOT been selected high?". That poster is right, it seems almost every year, a player like that is always selected high.

But in my viewings of Rychel in the U-18 tournament, he just might be the exception. Yes, he is a great forechecker, has very good size, and is a goal scoring machine when it comes to deflections and garbage goals. But in my opinion, he didn't appear to be the type of prospect that is dynamic and that could generate offense himself, something you want in a top 10 prospect.
