Draft Profile: Jesperi Kotkaniemi & Evan Bouchard

The Finnish center is rocketing up draft boards and may go in the top five, and the Canadian defenseman won’t be far behind.

Draft Profile: Quinn Hughes

The 2018 draft is heavy on defense even once you get past Rasmus Dahlin, and the undersized Hughes might be the next blueliner off the board.

Draft Profile: Brady Tkachuk

Whichever team selects the younger Tkachuk son will have few questions about what he brings to the table.

Draft Profile: Filip Zadina

Likely a higher pick than his linemate and countryman, whoever selects Zadina will be drafting a whole lot of goals.

Draft Profile: Andrei Svechnikov

Gifted the second pick in the draft thanks to the first lottery win in team history, the Hurricanes don’t need to overthink things and should select the top forward available.

The Finnish USHL product is a Corsi-for machine, but needs to round out his game before moving up into the professional ranks.

2017 Draft Profile: Suzuki and the Canes could be a great match

The Owen Sound playmaker thrives in puck possession, and that will grab the Canes’ attention.
