Cameron Morrison is easily the best player available in the USHL this year from a statistical standpoint (USNTDP players aside). He's being billed as a power forward and rightfully so - he's got the size, shot, and aggressive playing style of a power winger.
In his first season in the USHL, the Ontario native blew away his competition, leading in all relevant statistical categories, all while being one of the youngest members of his draft class.
Cameron Morrison projects to go in the mid second round, but you shouldn't be surprised if his name comes up just a little earlier than that.

The answer is 6.06, and he won't turn 20 until March of 2018—lord knows how tall he will be by then. Logan Brown has been an interesting player all year long, but a late spike—trumpeted by Craig Button on an appearance with Guy Flaming on the Pipeline Show and then a monster leap in his mock draft—has many of us scrambling to find out more about him. Want to know more about Logan Brown? Look up. WAY up.

Edmonton Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli has made it clear that he’s willing to discuss trades involving his team’s No. 4 overall pick at this summer’s NHL Draft. For the most part, he has suggested trading down, rather than trading out entirely, and if that’s the plan it’s helpful to look back at what Garth Snow and the New York Islanders did in 2008.

Coming in at 43rd in our consensus rankings is Sault St Marie winger Boris Katchouk, who is a player that won't wow you on the ice but will do the little things to generate offence.
He may not be a flashy player but for a second round pick, he is someone that teams will be attracted to.

Back in March, the Edmonton Oilers signed winger Jere Sallinen. Although he is a Finn, Sallinen was playing in the KHL—part of Finland's entry in that league, Jokerit. He went 50gp, 8-11-19 in the KHL and will push for NHL employment this fall. Although there is a real chance he starts in Bakersfield, Finnish Oilers often make if to the NHL, if only for a time. Since the March signing, Peter Chiarelli turned his attention to NCAA players and shored up the pro ranks over a few weeks. There are still some interesting Euro free agents, some of them on display at the Worlds right now. Will the Oilers go shopping again?
