Potential Minnesota High School 2018 NHL Draft Prospects

Summer is almost over and it is time to start talking hockey again. In my opinion, it never too early to start talking Minnesota High School Hockey. We saw this summer during the 2017 NHL Draft, 17 Minnesotans taken including 9 players that played in the MSHSL their senior year. I have started a list of Minnesota players (players that I believe are staying for upcoming HS season) that I think may have the potential of being drafted in the 2018 NHL Draft. Now this isn’t set and stone and of course there will be changes made to it (Players will be added, players will be removed) but this gives you an idea who just might has a shot at making it to the next level.

For now, I am just going to get you a simple bio on each player. As the season goes along and when I see more of these players, I will go more in-depth on each players’ strengths and weakness.

Hope you enjoy!

EL = Elite League             HS = High School              T1EHL = Tier 1 Elite Hockey League
