Check out our expanded … A slick and cerebral forward with excellent hands, Jarvis has all the tools required to be a dominant player in major junior. He also owns an excellent shot; one that can force goalies into making tough saves.

Lukas Cormier, LHD, Charlottetown (QMJHL). Brisson will need a few years of development, but he looks like middle-six forward at the NHL level. He backstopped Russia to major upset wins over last year’s historic U.S. NTDP at the world championship over Canada for Ivan Hlinka gold a few months later.

Check out our 7 Round 2021 NHL Mock Draft He plays with intensity in all three zones and will never turn down the chances to drive all his weight into opponents of all sizes. His offensive numbers also increased as the season progressed. D Joni Jurmo 6’3 190 FIN JR. 43-5-28-33. Mysak has a knack for getting open and using his top-end speed to outpace pressure. He also loves to position his feet in such a way to fool defenders in one-on-one situations. He boasts excellent vision and can play in all zones. Sanderson does everything well, but it’s his upside that has him approaching the second half of the first round for me. W Kasper Simontaival 5’8 170 FIN 10-1-3-4-6, 51.W Daniel Gushchin 5’8 165 USHL 42-22-25-47-42, 52. The son of well-known agent Pat Brisson, Brendan had an excellent first full season in the USHL. However, at least two nations — Canada and Russia — tend to be stingy with WJC roster spots when it comes to 17 or 18-year-olds. I do still think he will be an excellent NHL player, however. As the NHL continues to emphasize speed, smarts and creativity, expect the first two rounds of this draft to be loaded with prospects who can meet the requirements of today’s fast-paced game.

And while there is a case to be made his production isn’t terrible, considering he was one of the youngest players in the NCAA, I still have a few concerns regarding his upside. He’s a center that is coveted and has decent size and strength. He may only have six goals on 90 shots through Dec. 1 but he owns a very good shot and can release it with authority — even if the puck is in his skates or he’s overextended. Drysdale is one of the best skaters in the draft, regardless of position. As a 17-year-old, Askarov has torn up various leagues in Russia, including getting a start in the KHL.

C Hendrix Lapierre 6’0″ 181 QMJHL 19-2-15-17-10, 22. Some scouts are concerned with his skating, but I believe it is good enough and his tool kit (especially hockey sense) makes up for his foot speed. Way too good for juniors but still somewhat green for the adult-age SHL, Raymond oozes star potential; his 200-foot play at the last under-20 Four Nations tournament helped his reputation as one of the most complete forwards in his draft class. Poirier is a poised “offenseman” with escapability, who like Drysdale, is dedicated to pushing the pace to his level and creating chances off the rush. C Mavrik Bourque 5’10” 165 QMJHL 49-29-42-71-30, 16. Height/Weight: 6’1”, 192 pounds. Andrae has been compared by some to Erik Bannstrom of Ottawa. Greig possesses excellent offensive instincts and patience. There’s a lot more to Lundell’s game than just intangibles, as he boasts a clean, powerful stride and fires off an absolute laser with accuracy to boot.
