Fighting Sioux in THN's Future Watch

The Hockey News' annual prospect review, Future Watch, arrived in the mail yesterday. Here's a rundown of the Sioux presence amongst the NHL's top prospects:

  • Brad Malone, Colorado Avalanche #5 Prospect
  • Rocco Grimaldi, Florida Panthers #7 Prospect
  • Derek Forbort, Los Angeles Kings #2 Prospect (#64 Overall NHL Prospect)
  • Danny Kristo, Montreal Canadiens #9 Prospect
  • Brock Nelson, New York Islanders #3 Prospect (#66 Overall NHL Prospect)
  • Jason Gregoire, Winnipeg Jets #5 Prospect

In THN's Sneak Peek at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, potential defenseman recruit Seth Jones, who took his official visit to UND yesterday, is currently slotted to go #1 overall.

Looking back at the Top 50 Prospects from 2007, three former Sioux were ranked in the top 18:

  • #2 - Jonathan Toews
  • #17 - Drew Stafford
  • #18 - TJ Oshie

Amongst THN's Class of 2007, Drew Stafford has the second most NHL games (366) under his belt, while Jonathan Toews (352) has played in the sixth most.
