Coming in as our 17th ranked prospect, is Penticton Vees defenceman Dante Fabbro.
The smooth skating defenceman was a force for what many expected to be the eventual BCHL champions. but their season was cut short after a 2nd round loss to West Kelowna. For Fabbro personally, the loss may have been a blessing in disguise as he was able to suit up for Canada at the U18 World Junior Championships.
This allowed him to play against the top players from all over the world with hopes of mitigating the questions of whether his success at the junior A level in Penticton would translate. We think it did, thus he falls just outside of the top 15 for the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Coming in at 18 on the Nation Network's prospect ranking is NCAA defenseman Charlie McAvoy. McAvoy combines strong skating, high hockey IQ, and superb vision to create a tantalizing package for a draft eligible defenseman.
After the jump we'll take a look at McAvoy as a player with some risk, but also a great amount of upside.

The NHL dropped a massive bomb on the hockey world this morning by announcing that Las Vegas is the confirmed destination for the next expansion team. It's safe to say that nobody saw this coming, and we are still trying to wrap our heads around it.

Introducing TOP TEN TUESDAY!
Now that the 2015/16 NHL season has officially wrapped up (with Jultz hoisting the Holy Grail high above his head), it seems like a swell time to discuss the highlights from the 2015/16 Oilers season. Today, we start a new tradition with the first ever Top 10 Tuesday! This week's countdown is dedicated to the best moments from the past season, which is a nice change from the memories that would cause most of us to jab a fork into our eye than look back on (keep those forks handy because I’ll be reminding you of those memories in next week’s edition of Top 10 Tuesday).

For any sports fans, certain events are strong enough as they happen to have the sustain of a lifetime. I love the 2006 team, their memory is burned into my brain. I will remember the giant Pisani in overtime as long as I live, and work every day to forget Game 7. There is pain, real pain, and there is this.
