Probably goes in the 3rd or 4th round, but will be well worth it.

Justin Bailey and Shea Theodore are two guys I think could jump up into the 1st.

Agree with both of these. Lodge is a lanky dude that tore up the OHL the last few months of the season and really looks like he could break out big next year.

Really like Heatherington as well - big, tough kid who can skate and always has an active stick in his own end. Really liked what I saw from him today at the U18's.

Both of these guys would be surefire 1st rounders most years, crazy how deep this year's draft is.

Can't wait to snag him in the top 15 of my keeper league draft. Maybe even 10th overall.

Agree with Ganly and Baptitse. Expected a little more from Baptiste, but they're both good prospects. Considering is Ganly's rookie season too it's impressive.

Cammarata and Hartman. Doubt he'll be a dark horse, but Nick Baptiste

Ill echoe Jimmy Lodge. If he adds more weight he could be a phenomenal player. Valentin Zykov I think will be drafted way later than he should be as well

Justin Bailey: Dealt with an injury, which really interrupted his development this season. Still showed flashes of becoming a real handful as a power forward.

Jimmy Lodge: Tore it up in the second half of the season. One of the skinniest kids in the draft, look out if he bulks up and starts to win more puck battles.

Justin Bailey.

Got to watch him all season in Kitchener, so may be a little biased, but the kid has some phenomenal hands in tight, huge body, drives hard to the net, showed flashes of pure brilliance.

Considered very raw in his current stage of development.

This is a guy that that may get picked late 1st-end of 2nd. No matter who takes him, I see him being an NHL power forward in the not too distant future.

I don't even know if Yan-Pavel Laplante is overrated, underrated or what. I just feel like from a couple WU-18 games, acknowledging that is a small sample, I kinda like him and wonder if he fits the darkhorse criteria?

Charlie Graham. Backup to Malcolm Subban but has been impressive when called upon. Could easily not be selected till the last few rounds.

Seconded

I'm big on Charlie Graham. Hard to believe Belleville will lose Subban next season and still have one of the better starting goalies in the league for 2 more years.

Besse for me, I think the college aspect scares some organizations off but their is some huge payoff potential in a player with his skillset IMO.

I'll say Pavel Buchnevich. I see a future #1C. Also agree with Dillon Heatherington. I generally dislike drafting defensive defensemen in the first round, but I really like what I see from Heatherington.

I hope someone takes him realizing how talented he is.

If he was the starter he easily goes top four rounds in my opinion.

There's a ton of untapped potentional because of who he is playing behind in London. Elie has been good enough in the playoffs to force himself into top 6 minutes at important times in games.
Agree with Elie, he's impressed me.

Don't even think they'll be drafted, but I'd throw a late at Mattias Nörstebö and Fredrik Eriksson.

Of the more likely to be drafted I'd say Gustav Possler could provide more bang for the pick than most Swedes.
