Eden Prairie's Snuggerud, Spinner travel same path

Thursday, 06.19.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Their birth certificates and last names obviously say otherwise, but defenseman Luc Snuggerud and right wing Steven Spinner of Eden Prairie (Minn.) High School practically are brothers.

So much so that it wouldn't shock anyone if both were selected by the same team at the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on June 27-28.

Snuggerud and Spinner, who live 10 minutes apart in Eden Prairie, not only attended the same high school and were finalists for the state's prestigious Mr. Hockey Award, but each will attend the University of Nebraska-Omaha in the fall. They were drafted by the Muskegon Lumberjacks of the United States Hockey League in 2012 and their rights were packaged to the Omaha Lancers in a trade Feb. 3.

They were roommates at the 2014 NHL Scouting Combine in Toronto in May, but assured NHL.com they wouldn't be sharing a room when they get to college.

Thursday, 06.19.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The Los Angeles Kings proved again this season that good drafting is the way to success. The core of the Kings' second Stanley Cup-winning team in three seasons -- goaltender Jonathan Quick, defenseman Drew Doughty, No. 1 center Anze Kopitar and captain Dustin Brown -- were drafted and developed by the Kings.

Every team has had its ups and downs since the draft began in 1963. Here's a look at the hits (and some of the misses) for the seven teams in the Pacific Division:

Draft hits and misses: Central Division

Thursday, 06.19.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

John Kreiser - NHL.com Managing Editor

With two Stanley Cup championships in the past five seasons, the Chicago Blackhawks are an excellent illustration of the value of solid drafting. The Blackhawks went from a down-and-out team to an elite franchise in large part because of their success at the draft table.

Every team has had its ups and downs since the NHL Draft began in 1963. Here's a look at the hits (and some of the misses) for the seven teams in the Central Division.

CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS

Best first-round pick: Jonathan Toews (2006) -- There is no area of the game in which Toews does not excel. He was 20 when he was named captain of the Blackhawks; at 26 he has seven 20-goal seasons, 440 points in 484 games, two Stanley Cup rings (and two Olympic gold medals), the Conn Smythe Trophy as MVP of the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2010 and the Selke Trophy as the NHL's top defensive forward last season. He's a terror on faceoffs (57.2 percent this season), among the NHL's best at the shootout (34-for-68 in his career) and is in the mix when discussion turns to the best player in the game today.

U.S. looking for high-compete players for 2015 WJC

Wednesday, 06.18.2014 / 1:03 PM / 2015 World Junior Championship

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Jim Johansson, like the rest of the hockey world, watched the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup Final and saw how the game needs to be played to be successful.

"You saw in the NHL playoffs, whoever came over the boards for the Los Angeles Kings was pretty hard to play against," said Johansson, the assistant executive director of hockey operations for USA Hockey and the general manager of the United States for the 2015 World Junior Championship. "The World Juniors has become that. The skill level is really high across all the countries. It comes down to goaltending and the guys that are really hard to play against as a 23-man team unit and keep coming in waves."

Those skilled, competitive players are what he's looking for to fill the roster for the United States at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship. That starts with USA Hockey's National Junior Evaluation Camp, which will be held Aug. 2-9 at the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, N.Y.

USNTDP center Larkin strives to be complete player

Wednesday, 06.18.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

A projected two-way center with high-end offensive capability, center Dylan Larkin of the United States National Team Development Program Under-18 team is a prime candidate to be an early-round choice in the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, June 27-28.

"He's probably one of the best skaters we've had come through the program in a long time," U-18 coach Danton Cole said. "But he's also diligent; he's interested in his defensive zone. He wants to be a Steve Yzerman-type player."

Larkin, No. 17 on NHL Central Scouting's final list of the top draft-eligible skaters in North America, had 31 goals, six power-play goals and 56 points in 60 games. In 28 games against teams in the United States Hockey League, he had 17 goals and 28 points.
