left wing, Canada
A year ago, Drouin was lingering in midget hockey, unsure if he wasphysically ready to jump to the QMJHL. Today, he is the most dominant offensive force in the CHL, using his Joe Sakic-like vision and soft hands to average two points per game for Halifax. His age -- just 17 -- made him a dark horse coming into camp, but his strong showing earned him a spot on Canada's second line beside Ryan Strome and Brett Ritchie. He could be this year's Jordan Eberle.
