With last month's draft in the books, the National Hockey League released its list of players to watch for 2015 and there are already a couple of well-known names in the mix.

To no surprise, Erie Otters centre Connor McDavid and United States National Development Team centre Jack Eichel are on the list of North American players. Both have long been touted as the leaders in what could be the deepest draft class in over a decade.

Two summers ago, McDavid was granted exceptional player status and was made eligible for the Ontario Hockey League draft at the age of 15.

Last season, he scored 28 goals and 99 points in in 56 regular season games and already has 53 goals and 165 points in 119 games.

McDavid is also a lock to return with Canada's National Junior Team this December after playing in last year's tournament as a 16-year-old.

Eichel, who signed a letter of intent in April to play this season with Boston University, led the USNTDP Under-18 team with 32 goals and 71 points in 43 games.

Other players of note include defenceman Noah Hanifin of the U.S. Under-17 team, blueliner Oliver Kylington of Farjestad and Liberec centre Pavel Zacha from the Czech Republic.
