The Hockey News - Fantasy Pool Guide - - Prospects To Plan For -

Luke Kir­wan,

LW, 19

A Team USA prod­uct head­ing to OHL Wind­sor, Kir­wan is a gifted power for­ward with a late birth­day who will go straight from the draft af­ter two sea­sons with the Spit­fires.

Noah Han­i­fin,

D, 19

The third mem­ber of the in­sane tri­umvi­rate at the top of the 2015 draft, Han­i­fin is a fran­chise D-man who will likely play two years at Bos­ton Col­lege be­fore jump­ing to the NHL.

Jakub Vrana,

LW, 20

The Czech star will be see­ing more time with the pros in the Swedish League, so why not let him de­velop there? Once he’s ready, Vrana brings a wicked shot and great speed.

Matt Barzal,

C, 19

A No. 1 pick in the WHL ban­tam draft, Barzal is a play­maker who will rack up points in Seat­tle as he pre­pares his 5-foot-11 frame for the pro ranks.

Ryan MacIn­nis,

C, 20

Scouts love this 2014 pick’s re­spon­si­ble na­ture and talent, but the son of Al MacIn­nis needs to get stronger. The good news is that once he does, he’ll have a 6-foot-4 man’s body.
