NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor Adam Kimelman:
Alexander Nylander, LW, Mississauga (OHL)
The Devils averaged a League-low 2.22 goals per game this season so an offensive upgrade is needed. Nylander, a 6-foot, 180-pound forward, is a dynamic skater and offensive talent that excelled for Sweden at the World Juniors, and led all OHL rookies in points.
NHL.com Staff Writer Mike G. Morreale:
Clayton Keller, C, USA U-18 (USHL)
A skilled left-shot forward, Keller (5-9, 168) possesses the smarts, speed and competitiveness to succeed at the next level. He led USA Hockey's National Team Development Program Under-18 team with 107 points in 62 games. He had four goals and 10 points in seven games to help the U.S. win bronze at the 2016 IIHF World U-18 Championship. Keller is committed to Boston University in 2016-17, but also was selected in the second round (No. 40) of the 2014 OHL Draft by Windsor.
