Outside of MacKinnon amd Jones, who I would like the the Blues to get the most, the other three prospects peaking my interest who look to go mid-to-late first round are Kerby Rychel (C), Robert Hägg (D), and Jason Dickinson (C).

All three answer needs for the Blues and all three have high upside.

I've got to watch a lot of Windsor games online this year and I've talked to a handful of people who've seen him play first hand and Rychel's game seems to fit the Blues system perfectly. He is versatile, playing the center and left wing position, he's big and strong, and very gifted offensively.

He has a strong defensive game as well, and can play both sides of the puck.

Primarily a sniper, he has great vision and has a very good pass as well.

Personally, if the Blues drafted anywhere from the eighth pick or later and Rychel was available he's the pick I'd like more than anyone.
