  1. Defenceman | 6'3" | 198 lbs Shoots | Left Born | 1998-05-05 Draft | 2016 Round 1 #5 Overall by Vancouver Canucks Olli Juolevi Scouting Report:
  2. RW | 6'1" | 185 lbs Shoots | Right Born | 1998-10-16 Birthplace | Shaunavon, SK, CAN Draft | 2017 Round 2 #33 Overall by Vancouver Canucks
  3. C | 5'11" | 181 lbs Shoots | Right Born | 2001-07-07 Draft | 2019 Round 7 #215 Overall by Vancouver Canucks An under-the-radar prospect, Arvid Costmar is a skilled forward whose best attribute is his vision in the offensive zone. He has a knack for finding open areas, opening up the ice for himself and his teammates. -- Canucks Army Center Arvid Costmar led Sweden in scoring and had the best performance in the tournament (u-18 5 Nations) among the Swedish forwards. He was the driving force behind Sweden’s offense all tournament. He played the game at a solid pace and has a knack for getting himself open is prime scoring spots. When he gets passes in a scoring position he wastes no time. When he shoots he gets really low and hammers a low one-time snap shot. He posted seven points including four goals. -- Draft Prospects Hockey
  4. D | 6'4" | 190 lbs Shoots | Left Born | 2002-04-19 Draft | 2020 Round 3 #82 Overall by Vancouver Canucks The Draft Analyst: A no-nonsense puck mover who apparently has played more error-free games than any draft-eligible defenseman I’ve watched this season, Jurmo has to be considered one of Europe’s top two-way rearguards. He plays for a superpower in Jokerit, which relies on him to eat big minutes, play on special teams, and match up against opposing top lines. Jurmo has everything you would want in a potential top-pairing defenseman. He is an effortless skater with a long, clean stride , and he doesn’t buckle under the first sign of pressure. When it comes to the breakout, Jurmo utilizes quick thinking and a series of deceptive moves to either peel away from a forechecker or trap him with a bank pass. At 6-foot-3, 190 pounds, Jurmo can be an intimidating presence as he powers through the zone at top speed. His decision making with the puck is more clean than it is creative, but he has excellent vision and will delay in the offensive zone to open up a line for either a hard shot or an on-the-tape seam pass. And good luck trying to dance around him in a one-on-one scenario — Jurmo closes on rushing forwards in a hurry and will neutralize an entry attempt with either a strong body check or well-timed stick-on-puck. “Jurmo loves to take the puck from his own end and carry it all the way to the other end. And because of his puck-handling skills and skating ability, he can often be successful at that. But sometimes, he loves carrying the puck way too much and doesn’t even consider other options. He tries to force himself through traffic and if that fails, that usually means a breakaway or an odd-man rush against. He is capable of making good breakout passes, so it’s just a matter of making better decisions with the puck.” – Jokke Nevalainen, Dobber Prospects “Jurmo is now my top European defenceman and the more I watch him, the more I’m convinced he is a first-round talent. I believe he has top-pairing potential based on his skating ability and his offensive instincts. There is refining and developing to be done, but the raw upside warrants this ranking. Jurmo reminds me a lot of fellow Finn Rasmus Ristolainen, who went eighth overall in 2013, but Jurmo hasn’t gotten as much exposure to date. He is still very underrated and could be labelled a sleeper based on other rankings and mock drafts. Jurmo is often labelled a project — thus the conservative rankings — but I’m ready to call him the real deal.” – Larry Fisher, The Hockey Writers Last Word On Sports: Jurmo combines his skating with effective puck-handling skills. He can avoid forecheckers when retrieving loose pucks and make a quick move to get past them and start the transition game. From there, Jurmo can either rush the puck up the ice or make a smart pass to a forward to lead the rush. His stickhandling and skating allow him to avoid defenders and make successful zone entries. He can quarterback the play from the point, finding passing lanes and exploiting them to set up teammates. His movement in the offensive zone creates opportunities and he can feather passes through tight areas. He also has excellent vision and almost always makes the smart pass. Jurmo's projectable 6-foot-4 frame and smooth-skating lend itself to covering large swaths of ice and carrying the puck from one zone to the next sometimes effortlessly. His speed makes him one of the best puck-rushers in the Finnish U20 league. He accelerates well when he's already in motion and is a deceptive skater in the neutral zone with crossovers and changes of pace. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide
  5. RW | 6'1" | 196 lbs Shoots | Left Born | 2001-06-24 Draft | 2019 Round 1 #10 Overall by Vancouver Canucks
  6. LW | 6'2" | 201 lbs Shoots | Left Born | 1998-10-12 Birthplace | Whitby, ON, CAN Draft | 2017 Round 2 #55 Overall by Vancouver Canucks Strengths Excellent size and strength. Drives the net. Good shot. Reads plays well. Under Construction (Improvements to Make) Skating Consistency NHL Potential Gadjovich has the upside of a top-six power forward. He already has the frame and can only get stronger. I believe he is a little dependent on his linemates. He enjoyed a great deal of success playing on one of the OHL’s best lines with Nick Suzuki and Kevin Hancock. The situation Gadjovich lands in is worth watching. His floor is a bit lower as well given his hot and cold streaks. He has boom or bust potential. Risk-Reward Analysis Risk – 5/5, Reward – 4.5/5 Fantasy Hockey Potential Offence – 8/10, Defense – 7/10 Awards/Achievements Jonah Gadjovich won an OHL Gold Cup Championship in 2013-14. He also won an OMHA Gold Medal in the same season. He was originally drafted 39th overall in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection.
  7. F | 6'3" | 210 lbs Shoots | Left Born | 2002-08-13 Draft | 2020 Round 4 #113 Overall by Vancouver Canucks Elite Prospects: His hand-eye is excellent, and his balance in front of the net is so strong. Kunz really shows an understanding of his game and where he needs to go to be successful. His passing ability is evident. Kunz's willingness to get to high danger areas makes him so dangerous. His shot is heavy, and he possesses a quick release.
  8. D | 6'2" | 192 lbs Shoots | Right Born | 2001-11-07 Draft | 2020 Round 7 #191 Overall by Vancouver Canucks Ranked #95 by ELITEPROSPECTS.COM Ranked #231 by FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS Ranked #42 by TSN/CRAIG BUTTON Ranked #44 by NHL CENTRAL SCOUTING (EU Skaters) There is so much more to Persson's game offensively than his point totals would indicate. A big part of his success comes from his abilities as a distributor. He makes good calls on when to join the rush or play with a more passive posture. Persson maintains a high work rate, with active feet and smart skating patterns, ensuring he's always open to receive a pass. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide From Blazers' GM: “We are excited to be able to add a player like Viktor to our organization,” said General Manager Matt Bardsley. “He is a mobile defenseman who is willing to lead or join the rush and brings the qualities we look for in a Kamloops Blazers defenseman.” “He has good offensive upside while providing a steady presence in his own end,” Bardsley continued. “We feel with his age and experience that he will be able to contribute right away.” From the CHL Import Draft: “I talked to the coaches and it sounds really good, just how they see the game,” said Persson, who admires the skills of Swedish defenceman John Klingberg, who plays for the Dallas Stars. “They seem to have really good development and focus on the players. Development is No. 1 and I’ve also heard great things about the organization.” “I’m a big guy, I like to play physical, pretty fast, I would say, and I like to join the offensive rush,” Persson said. “I’m excited to come over and show what I’ve got.”
  9. Linus Karlsson Vancouver Canucks image courtesy of Fantasy Summary Midde-six scoring center Attributes Fantasy Upside 6.5 NHL Certainty 5.0 Country SWE Position C Roster Type System Shoot/Glove Right Date of Birth November 16, 1999 Height 6‘1” Weight 179 lbs Drafted 2018 Round 3; Overall: 87 On Emmanuel Perry’s list of every forward currently under the age of 19 who was technically eligible for the 2018 draft, Linus Karlsson, the Sharks’ third-round pick, ranks tied for 35 in terms of potential upside (WAR/82 in the NHL). That list is 1,752 names long and features names like Andrei Svechnikov, Vitali Kravstov, Filip Zadina, and Martin Kaut at or near the top. Karlsson’s 58 percent chance of making the NHL according to that model places him in even more rarefied air: 14th among that same group of 1,700+ teenage forwards. Age (as of September 9): 18Position: CenterShoots: RightSize: 6’1”, 187 poundsNationality: SWE2017 Ranking: N/AStaff Ranking: 11Acquired: 2018 NHL Entry Draft, Round 3, 87 overall2017-18 Team: Karlskrona J20, SuperElit2018-19 Team: Karlskrona, Allsvenskan Karlsson — a 6-foot-1, 187-pound center from Eksjö, Sweden — scored 56 points in 48 SuperElit games (including playoffs) last season. It’s important to note that those points were not empty calories, though he did acquire a healthy proportion on the power play. Betweenness — a measure of a player’s impact on his team’s scoring network — shows how much a given player relied on his teammates to score primary points. This is a list of the top 25 players in the entire SuperElit league last season, so many of the skaters listed here are a year or so older than Karlsson. In terms of even-strength scoring impact, Karlsson ranked among the top 20 skaters in his entire league. In all situations, thanks to his extra man contributions, Karlsson ranked ninth. This is all to say that his draft year season, which included one assist in 14 SHL games, was quite impressive. Emmanuel Perry’s model, which was referenced above, is not the only method of statistical comparison to look upon Karlsson favorably. The model Jeremy Davis of Canucks Armydeveloped only gave Karlsson a 23 percent chance of making the NHL thanks to this 2017-18 season. But Davis also found that Karlsson was involved in 41 percent of his team’s 5-on-5 goals, the highest such mark of any prospect Davis and Co. evaluated. Karlsson’s most-common teammates except one all produced better results when skating alongside the Sharks prospect. NHL players who have put together similar statistical seasons in the SuperElit league include Jesper Fast, Jakob Silfverberg, Gustav Nyquist, and Carl Hagelin. If Karlsson turns into the next Silfverberg, well, that’s a third-round pick well spent. What we like Per the information on Karlsson’s EliteProspects profile page, Draftin Europe scouts believe his strengths include a “nice shot and combines that with his ability to read developing holes in the offensive zone” and has a “quality game from faceoff dots to end-boards.” Karlsson positively impacts his teammates while consistently adding to his own stat sheet. He impressed many around the Swedish hockey world last season and was at one point rumored to be a trade targetof the SHL’s Rögle and 2017-18 league champion Växjö Lakers teams. For his hard work, Karlsson was named the SuperElit’s best forward. The Sharks picked Karlsson in the pick #40-100 range, which is typically where teams outperform Central Scouting rankings, especially when their picks diverge from the rankings. Karlsson has all the statistical makings of a star who was looked over a few times too many. Areas of Improvement According to The Athletic’s Corey Pronman, Karlsson could stand to work on his skating. At just 178 pounds, Karlsson will also likely need to spend some time lifting heavy weights and eating lots of protein in an attempt to add a little extra muscle to his frame as he heads into his first full professional season. Highlight Here, Karlsson notices his team has collected the puck safely in its own zone, so he heads up ice looking for the stretch pass. The pass connects — and here you can see where concerns about his skating come from — and Karlsson takes off toward the opposing net. He’s calm and steady on his skates during his approach and tosses just the right amount of dangles into the mix before finishing off the play in style. Soft hands. Concentration, not strength. If we have to wave goodby to least we have a younger Swede to take his place...!
  10. The Canucks newest signing from today, an overage defenseman out of Windsor. His offensive numbers aren't dazzling for his age but by all reports he sounds like a mobile player who can move the puck well and you'd have to think there's a lot to his game we don't know about if the Canucks were willing to offer him an ELC. Plus, Windsor hosts the Memorial Cup this season so he'll gain some valuable experience there and we'll all get a chance to see him play which is nice. There should be a lot of competition for spots on defense in Utica next season, as Chatfield will be up against guys like Brisebois, Neill, and Olson who could all potentially turn pro.

RW/LW | 5'7" | 179 lbs Shoots | Left Born | 1998-05-05 Draft | 2017 Round 6 #181 Overall by Vancouver Canucks Canucks 6th round draft pick, and possibly one of the smallest players we've ever drafted. Kid's 5'7", a winger, and weighs in at 179 pounds. A Fin who played in the OHL and put up stellar numbers. As of the 2017-2018 season, Petrus Palmu was chosen as the Liiga rookie of the year! Congrats to Palmers, I've heard he's Utica bound next season but no real source as of yet.

  15. Scouting: Our first D in the draft. The kid comes in at the Pettersen class weight and comes in an inch higher than Subban. I hear the knock on the kid is consistency.
  16. Saskatchewan native and Edmonton Oil Kings captain Ashton Sautner has signed his NHL entry-level contract with the Vancouver Canucks, according to his agent. The Flaxcombe product’s signature was barely dry on the three-year deal when he faxed over the papers to his agent, Jeff Helperl, before heading to his latest WHL game. “It’s so exciting,” Sautner said in a brief phone interview before his Oil Kings took on the Lethbridge Hurricanes on Friday. “I can’t thank my friends and family enough for all of their support over the years.” Sautner is enjoying his best offensive WHL season. The undrafted 20-year-old was 12th in scoring among blue-liners heading into Friday’s action with 48 points.

  18. D | 6'1" | 170 lbs Shoots | Left Born | 2002-04-12 Draft | 2020 Round 5 #144 Overall by Vancouver Canucks Last Word On Hockey: Skating Truscott is a very good skater and he uses this to be effective in both ends of the ice. He has a good first step and strong acceleration in both directions. His top-end speed is also well above average. The strong backwards skating is combined with very good lateral agility and helps Truscott to defend against the rush. He is difficult to beat in one-on-one situations. His edgework and pivots are also very good and allow Truscott to change directions or transition from offence to defence (and vice-versa) with ease. Truscott could stand to get stronger in his lower body. This would improve his balance. It would also make him stronger in battles on the boards and in front of the net. Offensive Game Truscott pairs his skating with good stickhandling ability. He is able to retrieve pucks in his own zone and avoid the forecheck before passing the puck up the ice. He is also able to carry the puck through the neutral zone and create effective zone entries. However, this is something he does not do a lot of, as he prefers not to gamble unless an excellent opportunity presents itself. Truscott is not the most creative player but he makes safe and smart plays to keep the puck moving in the offensive zone. He won’t hold on to the puck for long, preferring to get it to an open teammate. He also does a good job of picking his spots and pinching in to keep the puck in the offensive zone. Truscott also has a decent shot from the point. It is not overpowering, but he does a good job of getting it on the net. Truscott uses his lateral mobility to walk the line and open up shooting lanes. He is effective with his one-timer from the point as well as sneaking down to the circle and taking a wrist shot. As he continues to get stronger, his shot may become even harder and give goalies more issues. Defensive Game Truscott uses his strong skating to defend in his own end of the rink. His backwards and lateral mobility gives him good gap control and he is tough to beat on the rush. He funnels attackers to the outside and away from prime shooting areas. An active stick helps him to stick check opponents and take the puck away. He also has good positioning away from the puck, cutting down passing and shooting lanes. Truscott’s ability to move the puck quickly out of the defensive zone also helps to reduce the other team’s possession and zone time, and this helps his defensive game. He could stand to be stronger and more physical as he will need to improve this area of his game to play at the pro level. EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide Truscott uses great edge work and mobility to find great passing options and exits from his own end of the ice. One can take solace in the fact that Truscott is a technically skilled passer who can thread the needle in all three zones -- even if he doesn't leverage that often enough to be an impact player, proof of concept exists.
