This year’s crop of draft-eligible players for the NHL Draft isn’t as strong as in recent drafts. Nevertheless, the NCAA does have some players who could hear their names called when the draft gets underway on June 30th in New Jersey.
Hockey’s Future takes a closer look at five such players (listed in alphabetical order by last name) and what makes them potential selections at this year’s draft. The list is comprised of three forwards and two defensemen. Unless otherwise noted, all stats are current as of Feb. 7th.

Interesting to see Shore on the list (I expected him to be).
He was one of those guys many people were surprised about when he didn't get drafted last year (especially considering the bloodlines). He seems to be playing exceptionally well in his freshman season. Seems like it'll be even more surprising if he goes undrafted yet again.
I wonder how high he could possibly go? He seems to be outproducing a large amount of higher NHL draft picks from last year's draft (in their freshman years).
