After taking a defenseman and a goalie in the first two rounda, the Carolina Hurricanes nabbed their first forward of the 2014 NHL Draft, selecting Warren Foegele, a 6-1 left wing who is committed to the University of New Hampshire.

Foegele was a relative unknown heading into last season, but he flew up draft boards with a dynamic campaign that saw him score 58 goals and 107 points in 52 games with his high school, St. Andrew’s, in Aurora, Ontario. Part of that was Foegele’s growth spurt: according to McKeen’s Hockey Draft Guide, Foegele grew six inches and gained 30 pounds last offseason, going from an undersized winger to one with ideal size on the wing.

The knock on Foegele is he was dominant against lesser competition — he was twice passed over in the OHL Draft — but since he just turned 18 he will have plenty of time to develop.
