April Draft Rankings

from Sam Cosentino of Sportsnet,

1. Owen Power, D, U of Michigan (NCAA): An abrupt end to an otherwise brilliant freshman season where ice-time and special teams play was earned and deserved.

2. Matthew Beniers, C, U of Michigan (NCAA): Work ethic, smarts and a Mercedes Benz engine all but guarantee he will play. It’s simply a matter of how high in the lineup can he go?

3. Luke Hughes, D, USNTDP: Similar path taken to the top five by Jake Sanderson last year. Size, skating and smarts were complemented by a season full of production, that saw nearly point per game numbers.

4. Dylan Guenther, RW, Edmonton Oil Kings (WHL): Came out of the gates hot and has not cooled. Likely to challenge the goal a game mark, but has impressed more this season with his playmaking.

5. Kent Johnson, C, U of Michigan (NCAA): Highlight reel waiting to happen. Dynamic offensive player whose confidence allows him to maximize his creativity.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
