Captained Sweden to a silver medal at the U-18 championships, and appeared in 23 games for Farjestad in the SEL at 17 years of age. His stock rose as the season went on, culminating with his strong play at the U-18's.

Good size and strength, reads the play well and will jump into the rush, good vision and passing skills, good compete level, likes to play physically. Weaknesses - Has a clumsy skating style, needs to work on quickness and lower body strength. NHL Upside - May develop into a top three NHL defenceman who takes care of his own end and sees some time on the second powerplay unit.

2010-11 Team: Saginaw Spirit League: OHL
Position: Left Wing Height: 6-1
2010-11 Stats: 59 GP, 27 G, 55 PTS Weight: 208 lbs.
Scouting Ranking
NHL Central Scouting: 19 NAS, International Scouting Services: No. 24, The Hockey News: No. 14
TSN Scout Grant McCagg:
After tearing up the USHL last year on the US national development team, found the going a little tougher in his inaugural OHL campaign, leading to a drop from the top ten draft status he enjoyed last autumn. Strengths - possesses all the tools. with size, strength, shot, skating and hands all above average. Capable of driving to the net and working effectively along the wall. Weaknesses - Doesn't show up to compete every night,lacks passion at times. Left scouts wanting more effort and production. NHL Upside - Has the physical tools to be an imposing top-six forward, but will need to improve his work ethic.

23. ROCCO GRIMALDI

2011 NHL Draft
Profile
2010-11 Team: USA U-18 League: USHL
Position: Centre Height: 5-6
2010-11 Stats: 58 GP, 39 G, 73 PTS Weight: 163 lbs.
Scouting Ranking
NHL Central Scouting: 32 NAS, International Scouting Services: No. 15, The Hockey News: No. 32
TSN Scout Grant McCagg:
Diminutive University of North Dakota recruit led the US development team in scoring. Tore up the 2010 U-17 tournament with 14 points in 6 games, then impressed again with a 13-point effort in the recent U-18's. Strengths - A feisty little warrior. when he's going his feet never stop, fearless on the puck, character guy, plays hard, strong core and lower body, likes to score goals, skilled puck carrier and sniper. Weaknesses - He's only 5-6. Can try to do too much by himself and overhandle the puck. NHL Upside - Has drawn comparison to Theo Fleury and Marty St. Louis. His lack of height shouldn't hinder him from becoming a top-six forward at the NHL level.

24. NICKLAS JENSEN

2011 NHL Draft
Profile
2010-11 Team: Oshawa Generals League: OHL
Position: Left / Right Wing Height: 6-2

Scouting Ranking
NHL Central Scouting: 21 NAS, International Scouting Services: No. 22, The Hockey News: No. 19
TSN Scout Grant McCagg:
Danish winger made his OHL debut this season and needed little time to adjust, notching 29 goals and 58 points in 61 games before adding seven goals in ten playoff games. Strengths - Moves well for a big man, has a pro release and shot, strong on the cycle, protects the puck well, soft hands, will drive to the net and battle for rebounds, likes scoring goals. Weaknesses - Doesn't bring it every night, needs to keep moving his feet, scouts would like to see a more consistent effort, not overly physical. NHL Upside - Scouts love his size/skill combo, has the physical attributes to be a top-line power winger.

2011 NHL Draft
Profile
2010-11 Team: Portland Winterhawks League: WHL
Position: Right Wing Height: 5-11
2010-11 Stats: 67 GP, 28 G, 79 PTS Weight: 170 lbs.
Scouting Ranking
NHL Central Scouting: 17 NAS, International Scouting Services: No. 28, The Hockey News: No. 33
TSN Scout Grant McCagg:
Produced 101 points in 87 regular season and playoff games, leaving little doubt about his offensive talent. Played ten games for Portland in 2008-09, will be entering his fourth WHL season. Strengths - Skilled winger who sees the ice well, gifted around the net, swift skater and top-end puck skills. Weaknesses - more of a projection than Rattie, has to build his strength and continue working on his all-around game. NHL Upside - draws some comparisons to Jordan Eberle. May be a top-six forward with time if he's willing to compete hard enough, but he's raw, will need to add strength.

26. BOONE JENNER

2011 NHL Draft
Profile
2010-11 Team: Oshawa Generals League: OHL
Position: Centre Height: 6-1
2010-11 Stats: 63 GP, 25 G, 66 PTS Weight: 194 lbs.
Scouting Ranking

TSN Scout Grant McCagg:
The fourth overall selection from the 2009 OHL Priority Draft averaged more than a point per game in regular season and playoff action, including seven goals in ten playoff games. Strengths - Exemplary work ethic and leadership qualities, fights through everything. Strong desire to succeed, has a physical edge to his game. Keen hockey sense, above average vision, anticipation and playmaking abilities, plays in all situations. Weaknesses - Skating is not great, short stride and a wide track, can't stop and start very well. NHL Upside - Will be a favourite of his coaches wherever he plays. Has the desire to succeed that leads most to believe he will overcome skating deficiencies. Will likely wear a letter for an NHL team some day.

27. MATTHEW PUEMPEL

2011 NHL Draft
Profile
2010-11 Team: Peterborough Petes League: OHL
Position: Left Wing Height: 6-0
2010-11 Stats: 55 GP, 34 G, 69 PTS Weight: 198 lbs.
Scouting Ranking
NHL Central Scouting: 28 NAS, International Scouting Services: No. 29, The Hockey News: No. 21
TSN Scout Grant McCagg:
A 33-goal season in 2009-10 netted him OHL Rookie of the Year honours, and high hopes from the scouts. On his way to 40+ goals when a hip injury sidelined him in late February. Strengths - Elusive skater with quick moves and gifted hands. Has a goal scorer's mentality and release, always dangerous in the offensive zone, adept at intercepting passes. Weaknesses - needs work on his defensive game, both effort-wise and positionally. Has to learn to work harder on a nightly basis, can't just get by on talent alone. Short stride, must work on top-end speed. NHL Upside - Things won't come so easily at the next level - has the offensive skill to play a top-six role but will have to earn it.

28. ZACK PHILLIPS

2011 NHL Draft
Profile
2010-11 Team: Saint John Sea Dogs League: QMJHL
Position: Centre Height: 6-1
2010-11 Stats: 67 GP, 38 G, 95 PTS Weight: 181 lbs.
Scouting Ranking
NHL Central Scouting: 15 NAS, International Scouting Services: No. 34, The Hockey News: No. 9
TSN Scout Grant McCagg:
Showed his character by playing in the Memorial Cup with shoulder injury, and providing some key offensive moments. Finished top ten in QMJHL scoring in both the regular season and playoffs. Strengths - Elite hands and playmaking abilities,really sees the ice well. Difficult to stop on power play when he has room, a consistent point producer, drives hard to the net and has a goal scorer's touch. Not overly gritty but likes to have the puck, can saucer a pass with ease. Weaknesses - skating is the issue, a one-speed guy, needs to work get stronger, and work on his first step. Could use his size in physical battles more often. NHL Upside - his vision, hands and lack of foot speed have drawn comparisons to Adam Oates. Has top six forward potential, but skating may hold him back.

29. TOMAS JURCO

2011 NHL Draft
Profile
2010-11 Team: Saint John Sea Dogs League: QMJHL
Position: Right Wing Height: 6-2
2010-11 Stats: 60 GP, 31 G, 56 PTS Weight: 193 lbs.
Scouting Ranking
NHL Central Scouting: 20 NAS, International Scouting Services: No. 25, The Hockey News: No. 28
TSN Scout Grant McCagg:
Followed up an impressive 51-point rookie QMJHL season with a underwhelming 56-point season on one of the most most talented QMJHL teams in memory. More was expected from the 6-2 Slovakian winger, who saw his ranking slip considerably before his redemptory Memorial Cup performance. Strengths - Has top ten skills with elite puckhandling abilities and excellent skating agility, has all the physical attributes to be a star. Weaknesses - very inconsistent, is a star one night and accomplishes little the next. Not overly gritty, tends to stay to the outside of the play. NHL Upside - Risky pick in the first round who may be a top-two winger (think a more skilled Michael Frolik), or could struggle for ice time due to inconsistencies.

30. CONNOR MURPHY

2011 NHL Draft
Profile
2010-11 Team: USA U-18 League: USHL
Position: Defence Height: 6-3
2010-11 Stats: 22 GP, 6 G, 10 PTS Weight: 185 lbs.
Scouting Ranking
NHL Central Scouting: 25 NAS, International Scouting Services: No. 19, The Hockey News: No. 55
TSN Scout Grant McCagg:
Missed the majority of the past two seasons with a stress fracture of a lower vertebrae, but impressed scouts upon his return in February. Scored the gold-medal winning overtime goal for the US at the U-18 championships. Strengths - Big, mobile defenceman with a hard, accurate snapshot and slapshot. Smart puck mover, especially on the powerplay. Decent gap control, competitive, works hard off the ice, skilled puckhandler with soft hands. Weaknesses - suffered serious injuries the past three seasons, hindering his development and raising concerns about being injury prone. Foot speed and quickness must improve. NHL Upside - Top three defenceman with above-average offensive skills.
