Early 2010 NHL Draft Watch List

New, comments

NHL.com has really been expanding their draft coverage, and got things started off for 2010 with this list of players to watch. It's a pretty good start to the list, though apparently they didn't get out to see the NTDP U-17 team last year, since a number of those kids should factor into the draft somewhere.

You can compare that list with my initial 2010 draft list. It looks like there were only a couple guys I had rated as As that they didn't One was Jack Campbell. They had former teammate Willie Yanakeff rated over him, which I think most would agree is lunacy. Jon Merrill, Jason Zucker, and Kevin Clare were all part of the aforementioned missing NTDPers. And they didn't list Brendan O'Donnell at all. He's a bit of a wildcard having played Manitoba AAA hockey last year, and it sounds like he'll play in the MJHL next year, but he really stood out to me at the Fargo Force tryout camp.
