That draft year was really bad for Canadian forwards, I think Athanasiou is actually producing as much as just about anyone drafted in his year for Canadian forwards
These teams really aren't that young, the only guys who won't be drafted by the time of the tournament I see on any of these rosters are Reinhart and Ekblad (possible one-two in 2014, Reinhart will be 18 and Ekblad 17, both playing their third years of major junior) and McDavid (considered by many the best offensive prospect in a while). While the early '94s in Canada are a terrible forward group, the late '94s are stacked; Monahan, Shinkaruk, Mantha, Rychel, Carrier, etc. Athanasiou is way down the list but I suppose he is on the list of candidates.
