Prospects known for their intangibles

Who are some prospects that i may not have heard of because they dont put up huge points but are heart and soul players for their teams and may develope into players like Ryan Calahan, Mike Richards and Milan Lucic?

Prospects that come to mind are Tyler Biggs, Scott Laughton, Phillip Danault

I'm praying Girgensons develops into a Backes type guy.

Danault is that guy for us. Nothing about his game really sticks out, but he seems to do well wherever he goes.

I remember Anton Lander being hyped as a leader.

I always hear about Hampus Lindholm being a calm leader on the ice, but I wouldn't say he's "known" for that.

Columbus has Boone Jenner and Ryan Murray coming up. Lukas Sedlak was the captain for the Czech WJC team.

Max Reinhart for Calgary.

Good hockey sense and work ethic. Looks to develop into a shut-down 3rd line C.

This thread was made for Austin Watson

Bo Horvat from this draft too can play a complete game.

Apparently Anton Lander has gotten a letter at every level of play except the NHL so far. Lets see if he can change that in a few years.

A lot of these prospects being mentioned may have these intangibles, but I don't think they're actually known for them.

Someone like Sean Monahan comes to mind for OP's criteria though.

I never really think top 10 draft pick when this comes to mind. Those guys Monahan included might have some of these traits but they generally have enough talent people are listing other things first. Elias Lindholm, MacKinnon and Monahan do a lot of these things but are thought of as can't miss prospects already.

Hartman is a guy in this upcoming draft and people saw a little bit of that at the WJC. Kerby Rychel is another one that might fit this bill depending on where he goes. I would have said Erne but his stock is growing a lot.

Xavier Ouellet as mentioned before is probably Detroit's best prospect in this regard, although Backman is also soon to be talked about a lot for this as people get more hear about him more, he should be on Sweden's World Championship roster this season, don't know about the leadership part that is usually lumped in with this yet. Ferraro is kind of developing an it factor this year in Grand Rapids. Great on the PK, speed to burn and relentless on the forecheck, scores timely big goals, leaves everything on the ice and will even stick up for teammates as a smaller guy. I don't think he makes the total grade we are going for though, but he does have a lot of intangibles.

Scott Harrington is a big one out there right now in terms of already drafted prospects. Austin Watson as mentioned before fits this category as well and I get to see a lot of him in Milwaukee. So do the two Buffalo guys mentioned, I have thought since I started watching McCabe last year at Wisconsin that there is something really special about him, he showed that off at the WJC this year, but it has been there since day 1 in Madison.

Jason Zucker is pretty well known for this I think. Huge goals and leadership positions throughout his young career. Depending on his continued development, he could potentially play a big role for U.S. hockey in the future.

He's having a great season in the AHL as well and should likely get some call up time at some point with the Wild.
