    Jake Virtanen
    Ben Thomas
    Travis Sanheim

    Both Virtanen & Thomas are in the Top Prospects game and will be drafted this year. Sanheim is not far behind Thomas in terms of play so I think he might get some late feelers in the 2014 NHL Draft.

    Those 3 are kind of interesting because both Thomas and Sanheim have really leap-frogged Josh Thrower, who was heads-and-tails above both of them last year in training camp. I guess it's better to get a full year of midget or junior A hockey rather than be a 7th defenceman at 16 and not get in many games? That being said, I think that Thrower is getting better with more playing time and with his fists of stone might get some noise in the draft.

    Other than that...maybe Radal Fazleev could also get some looks if he's able to start putting up some more points? The kid has a shot and is starting to understand the North American game now.
