Complete homer pick:

Connor Hellebuyck

I watch a lot of junior and try to absorb as much information on prospects and possible draftees. When Winnipeg took this guy last year I didn't have a clue who he was.

After doing some digging and asking around I got some decent info; Apparently a super raw goalie who has some potential.

He's started a few games for UMass-Lowell and has completely taken me by surprise by how well he's been able to do in his first year of college. As a raw prospect I only expected a few games, and I expected his team to semi carry him, with a handful of sour games. Admittedly his team has played well in front of him, but he's looked very solid in 2 of the games I've seen him play.

If his development trajectory continues like this he'll be an absolute stud.

That being said it's very early for him. His development could easily go south at some point, or he tops off as a minor leaguer. I just think he has great intangibles and solid natural athleticism.
