The Hurricanes closed out the draft by selecting big forward Max Zimmer at number 104, goalie, Jeremy Helvig at 134, and defenseman Noah Carroll at 164.

Zimmer is a product of the USHL.  Steve Kournianos lists him as an explosive scorer with an extra gear that can inside-out an opponent at the blink of an eye.  He is committed to Wisconsin but could stay another season with the Chicago Steel.  He scored 16 goals and had 21 assists in 55 games last year in Chicago.  He is listed at 6'0 and 185.

Helvig posted a record of 19-3-2 with a .929 save percentage and a GAA of 2.13 for the Kingston Frontenacs in 27 games played last season.  Standing at 6'2, he takes a lot of room in the net.

Noah Carroll is a defenseman for the Guelph Storm.  The 6'1, 178 pound skater had three goals and 11 assists last season. Carroll considers himself "the fun guy in the room" according to this article posted by the Storm.

We will have more thoughts about the draft later.
