De La Rose / Draisaitl

Jacob De La Rose and Leon Drasiaitl are two prospects(1995) from Sweden and Germany respectively and I was wondering if anyone knew anything about these two. Some information I'm looking for is..

- CHL bound?
- Scouting report
- Style of play
- Likely hood of being drafted in top two rounds of NHL draft..

Thanks everybody, feedback is appreciated.

De La Rose is a big and strong powerforward with lots of speed and intensity, he can also shoot the puck and plays a physical game. Not sure where I would rank him, probably in the top two rounds though. I also think he will stay in Leksand, he looked pretty good in his last few games and they will probably give him a good opportunity to play some good minutes on the senior team next season.

No chance he comes to the CHL?

- I think he will play in the CHL at some point, but I am not sure he will come over for next season.

- I have only seen Draisaitl play in 6 games at the WJC-18 this year.
So the following assessment is based on very limited viewing, plus I am not even close to being a scout so take it for what it's worth.

Draisaitl is big but rarely used his size and strength for physical play. He seemed to me more like a finesse player than a power forward. I think he has very good hands, a great shot, good vision and nice passing skills.
His skating is somewhat of question mark to me. At times it looked really bad, but sometimes it was pretty good given his size.

I believe he should look to play in a better league sooner rather than later, since he appears to have almost outgrown junior hockey in Germany.

- If his skating improves significantly I believe there is a good chance to be drafted in the first two rounds. However his draft year is 2014 so it is really hard to tell at this point. And the last couple of stand out prospects from Germany (Rieder and Kühnhackl) were taken in the 4th round, so I would not be surprised to see Draisaitl go a lot later than players with similar talent from other countries.
