The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League was undoubtedly the big winner at the 2013 NHL Draft, when a modern draft-record 31 players from the league were chosen over seven rounds.
It marked the highest total since 2003, when 38 players were selected over nine rounds, including No. 1 pick Marc-Andre Fleury of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The prospect pool for the 2014 draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia might not be as deep as it was nine months ago, when two of the six QMJHL players picked in the first round were among the top three choices -- No. 1 Nathan MacKinnon and No. 3 Jonathan Drouin. Still, there are some game-breakers having very productive seasons.
This week, Prospector Files continues its First Team draft-eligible pick six series at each position from the four major junior hockey leagues and one All European Team. The Ontario Hockey League (www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=707810) was featured last week and the QMJHL gains the spotlight today.
