2013 Sleepers

This is the place to rave about a sleeper prospect for the upcoming draft. Try and stick to guys who haven't really been mentioned in the top 60.

I'll start with a homer pick ( this thread will likely be full of them):

Bulls G Charlie Graham, who is Malcolm Subban's backup, has been very solid over the past couple weeks while Subban was with Team Canada. Graham has decent size and has a solid blend of athleticism and technique. He should be Belleville's starter next year but there are rumours that other teams are asking about him. I think he'd be a good pick in the late 3rd to early 5th round for a team looking to add to it's goaltending depth.

Is Cassels in the top 60? i think he might be.

Very good skater, has become accustomed to his role (3rd line winger and PK specialist), will get significant playing time if Jenner makes the jump.

If on the board in the third round, i wouldn't hesitate in taking him. He has NHL potential written all over him.

My two sleepers:

Nick Moutrey - RW - Saginaw Spirit

Love Moutrey's game. Big power forward who's upside is through the roof. Great skater for his size, heavy wrist shot, good hands, and pretty creative too. He always is hanging around the net and scores most of his goals in tight. He has worked his way up the pecking order in Saginaw and now is playing on the second PK unit and second PP unit. He pays attention to both sides of the ice. He hits really hard, but he doesn't do that with a whole lot of consistency. He's a fantastic agitator too, he's always in someone's face. I don't usually see him ranked in the top 60 anywhere to be honest, but he's a second round in my eyes.

Matt Needham - C - Kamloops Blazers

Undersized, but very feisty and loves to drive the net. He's pretty skilled too, accurate shot, great puck protection skills, and also a good passer. He has been seemingly gaining confidence every game, so hopefully he'll start to produce more. He's a good agitator too and finishes his checks. Love the energy that he plays with.

Agreed. I've seen a few Generals games this year and I've liked what I've seen from him.

I'd like it if the Habs took him in the 3rd round or later.

I'm just youre average armchair GM, but I've got myself a list of guys I think are undervalued or under appreciated. Some of them are Top 60 depending on who you ask. Others probably have never even been mentioned by scouts lol

Nicholas Baptiste - RW Sudbury OHL
Tyler Bertuzzi - LW Guelph OHL
Matt Buckles - C St. Michael's OJHL
Troy Crema - RW Hamilton OJHL
Leon Draisaitl - F Prince Albert WHL
Kurt Etchegary - C Quebec QMJHL
Luca Fazzini - F Lugano NLA
Michael Giugovaz - G Peterborough OHL
Stephen Harper - LW Erie OHL
Jackson Houck - F Vancouver WHL
Dominik Kahun - F Sudbury OHL
Austin Lotz - G Everett WHL
Bo Pellah - D Alberni Valley BCHL
Connor Rankin - F Tri-City WHL
Eric Roy - D Brandon WHL
Juuse Saros - G HPK SM-liiga
Markus Soberg - RW Froluna J20SuperElit
David Soltes - RW Kosice U20SlovakExtraliga
Nick Sorensen - RW Quebec QMJHL
Jordan Subban - D Belleville OHL
Adam Tambellini - C Vernon BCHL
Sergei Tolchinsky - RW Sault Ste. Marie OHL
Tim Wieser - LW Kloten EliteJrA

Within Top 20, which is obviously Top 60, I think Jason Dickinson will be really good and is overlooked.

I know for sure that Draisaitl is not in the 2013 draft, and I don't think Subban is either. Plus, at this point Draisaitl is a top 10 pick in the 2014 draft, which IMO does not qualify him as a sleeper. I like the inclusion of Tambellini there though. He has big league size and loads of offensive potential.

For me, the biggest sleeper is Nicolas Petan from the Portland Winterhawks. Second in WHL scoring and plays a 200 foot game all in his second year in the Dub. Only knock is that he's something like 5'9", but he is my bet to be an NHL impact player out of those most commonly ranked out of the first round by prominent lists at the moment.

Jordan Subban is 2013 eligible. Maybe you're thinking of Marsellis Subban is 2014 draft eligible. Not sure if any relation or just same last name.

Marselis is the other Subbans' cousin. Much less talented than any of them.

My sleeper pick is Remi Elie. Great motor, sort of like a less-talented Boone Jenner

Some players from the dub.

Gregory Chase [Calgary]
Colby Williams [Regina]
Roberts Lipsbergs [Seattle]
Mason Geertsen [Vancouver]
Matt Needham [Kamloops]

Don't know if he's a sleeper at this point, but Heatherington as well.

Gotta say Dillon Heatherington.

Ranked as a 2nd - 3rd rounder, but whoever takes this kid is going to be very happy.

Eligible in 2014. And he's widely considered to be a potential lottery selection.

Assuming your talking about Martin Reway for the Slovaks. He is eligible for this draft. Currently a ppg with Gatineau of the QMJHL, 2nd on his team in ppg. He is a solid player, good offensive skills, good skater, should be picked in the draft with a mid to late round pick.

It'll be a better draft for the Slovaks with Marko Dano finally starting to get some notice after a great WJC. Playing very solidly for Slovan in the KHL at just 18 years old (late 94 birthday). He is better than Reway for sure, he'll be a 3-6 round pick, maybe a late second.
