are there any players with game breaking skill that could be available in the late first?

Klim Kostin could be a game breaking player, from what I know from him.
6'3, 185, C/RW. Lots of talent.
But there's some red flags...

He had a shoulder surgery this winter. and :

Peter Harling Dobber Prospects - Mar. 19th: "Kostin is a big strong powerful offensive winger with a high skill set and excellent skating ability. The Russian factor should play heavily in his draft status as the CHL first overall pick in 2016 refused to report to the Kootenay Ice which should raise some red flags. Kostin has also been plagued by inconsistency, at times showing flashes of dominant upside drawing comparisons to the likes of Evgeni Malkin, and also going through uninspiring stretches where he is difficult to find in the game and has little to no impact."

Future Considerations: "A big-bodied power winger with strong work ethic…he can dominate for stretches with his cycle game and puck-protection skills…can carry defenders around the ice with his power and balance, or stickhandle around them with a deke or two as he goes to the net…high-energy guy, always keeps his feet moving…possesses a very quick release and has great shot selection…heads-up player who has a great work ethic and leads by example"

From Grant McCagg : «ballbreaker....you are taking a big risk picking him in the first. Character, compete and sense are major issues....he has the rest. One of those guys who my play a year in North America and split...or could figure it our and become an inconsistent 2ns-line winger. I don't think he has the smarts/will to ever be used on the first line by an NHL coach.»

There's barely any gamebreakers in the top half of the draft. Just hope you can get a solid player in the 20s.

It all depends if they're already taken...Kostin might be a game breaker if he gets it all together.....Chytil, Dolan-Anderson, Frost, Robertson, Brannstrom..all have lots of offensive potential.

Who are the best playmaking forwards in this draft that could still be on the board in the late first? I don't care about position.

Heponiemi. I'm starting to agree with the other guys that it's perhaps a bit of a stretch to take him with our first, but I really hope he makes it to one of our second round picks.

Anderson-Dolan named captain of Canada's U-18 team. His stock will surely rise.

He's a great '' leading by example'' choice for the C. His work ethic and motor are absolutely irreproachable.

His stock will surely rise among NHL scouting staffs because he was named captain?

I would think NHL teams have already done their homework and are well aware of his work ethic and character...as for rising..how do you know he's not already highly rated? I had him 30-35 going in..I wouldn't think he'll "rise" much higher than that.

No it'll rise because he'll be relied upon by the team and I think he'll answer the bell. It's over in Slovakia so I think JAD will take advantage with his elite speed.

It will rise above top 35? We'll see...pretty deep group now in the top 35...better depth than last year as it turns out.

Here's a look at why I thought Max Comtois was the best CDN fwd vs. Belarus #U18 https://recrutes.ca/maxime-comtois-1...s-apr-13-2017/

Within the top 35 you mean?

I think we may even be witness to a Senyshyn-like surprise with JAD. His age, speed and premium position will entice teams. Just a gut feeling.

Chytil a lot more likely to "rise" from the 35 range IMO...better size/skill package.

Don't care what the live ticker says, Chytil got an assist on the 4-1 goal against Belarus. Good defensive play to gain possession too. He's done the same play a couple times this game.

If he keeps playing like he did today this is looking like a good prediction. Chytil was all over Belarus today. Drawing penalties, winning battles/faceoffs, making them look silly with high skill plays and came away with 1+2. The entire shift before his goal was beast mode.

They miss a lot of assists....Chytil was dominant today..we'll see how he looks next game against a strong defence
