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.
