Avec la dernière publication du Top 50 hockey future, la direction du CH est vraiment fier d'y retrouvé ses trois premiers choix du dernier repêchage !!
#15 Anthony Mantha
Mantha is a pure sniper with the natural instincts to find the soft spots around the net and quickly bury his opportunities. He is an excellent skater who uses his size and reach to protect the puck from defenders. The big forward is not the most physical player along the boards, but he is very difficult to handle when driving the net. His two-way game is improving enough to allow him to play on both his team's penalty killing and power play units. But it is Mantha's offensive skills and scoring goals with his hard quick release that will get him to the NHL level. The knocks against Mantha at the 2013 NHL Draft were his lack of consistency and level of competitiveness, but he has erased that notion in the QMJHL this season by scoring 57 goals in 57 games and posting 120 points. The big winger is likely going to be a top-line player for Red Wings.
#30 Curtis Lazar
Lazar is a solid, all-round player and a capable goal scorer with an NHL-caliber release on his shot. He can also play the shutdown role against the opposition's best forwards and is very reliable without the puck. The two-way center possesses excellent hockey sense and plays on both specialty team units. He is a heart-and-soul kind of player with excellent leadership skills and a solid work ethic. The 19-year-old is versatile enough to play any of the forward positions and in all key situations. His potential is that of a top-six forward, but he is so coachable that Lazar can be inserted anywhere throughout the team's lineup. It is simply a matter of more development and time before the center is in an Ottawa Senators uniform, most likely in the very near future
#38 Samuel Morin
Morin has size, physicality, and plays with a nasty streak. The 6'6" blueliner lays big hits, battles well in front of the net and along the boards in the defensive zone, and will drop the gloves to stand up for his teammates. He is a good skater for his size, a shutdown defender with strong positioning that uses his long reach to cut down the passing and shooting lanes. Though he does not project as a big offensive force from the blue line, Morin has improved his outlet passes and his shot from the point. As a big lanky kid, he needs to gain more muscle mass and there are some normal skating issues with his reverse pivots, edgework, and footwork agility. Morin has top-four potential and should be a good defensive defenseman that is going to make life difficult in the Flyers end of the rink.
