NHL Top 5 2013 NHL Picks.
Nathan MacKinnon put up 31 goals and 47 assists with the Halifax Mooseheads and led the team to being two games away from the QMJHL Finals. I do not believe he will put up Crosby-like numbers, but could put up 80 points someday in the National Hockey League. He will improve this upcoming season, expect him to be the #1 Draft Pick for the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Seth Jones will be a top 3 pick in this upcoming draft. He is a slick-skater, he posses a heavy shot and has an outstanding offensive upside. He has a large frame and can still skate so fluidly. He can create space, and win battles for the puck. He is strong, athletic, and has great poise. Jones is great defensively and can play in all situations. He could challenge MacKinnon for the number one spot.
3. Aleksander Barkov
4. Hunter Shinkaruk
Monahan has good size and uses his skills with determination. Out of all of the prospects in this draft, Monahan would have to be the most clutch. Not only is he a great playmaker who has incredible hockey sense, he has a lethal snapshot and puts the puck in the net. He is a player teammates want. His way to find holes in the defense and create a play is uncanny. Monahan put up great numbers last season, expect him to put up large numbers this upcoming season.
