Draft Preview 2015

It's THN's highly anticipated, XL-sized Draft Preview 2015 edition, featuring our top 100 prospects with scouting reports on each, plus bigger features on generational talents Connor McDavid (and his impact in Edmonton) and Jack Eichel (and why Buffalo is about to fall in love) and much more. Rounding out the issue: - Good, but is it great?: Why this year’s draft is deep, but it’s no 2003 - The History of The NTDP: An inside look at the progress and inner-workings of USA Hockey’s prospect hothouse, the National Team Development Program - The draft’s family ties: Familiar names dot the landscape of this year’s selection board - NHL Team Reports: The game plan for all 30 franchises entering the draft, including their short- and long-term needs, their cap situation for next season and which prospects already in the system are ready to step up - THN’s Homegrown Draft Teams: We built each NHL team a roster comprised of its drafted players who remain active and played one NHL game this season. Some are going strong with their original clubs. Others have flourished elsewhere - To go or not to go to the draft?: Reid Gardiner can tell you the sinking, gutting feeling of hearing 210 prospect names called and not one of them being yours - Trail blazer: Viktor Khatulev never played an NHL game, but his significance as the first Soviet drafted into the NHL can’t be understated - A home away from home: Behind the scenes of junior hockey are billet families that are feeding, supporting and cheering on the NHL’s next in line - On the horizon: Meet the NTDP product who could end up being even better than Jack Eichel
