Czech defenseman Dominik Masin (pronounced mah-SHEEN) excelled at the U-18 World Championships, helping his country to a silver medal, the Czechs' first medal in that tournament since winning bronze in 2006. On the club side, Masin led defensemen in scoring on the U-20 Slavia Praha squad with 21 points (2G, 19 A) in 39 games.

Masin is a very versatile player. He's steady, smooth and efficient, but not a flashy guy by any means. Skates well, reads the play well and makes good decisions with the puck. He likely will not score a lot, but will give any team some quality minutes of reliable play.

Russian winger Nikolay Goldobin arrived in North America two seasons ago and has posted two solid OHL campaigns with the Sarnia Sting. This past season, the Moscow native led Sarnia with 94 points (38G, 56A) in 67 games. The previous year, Goldobin finished first amongst all OHL rookies with 30 goals and 68 points.

Goldobin loves to play the game east and west and would fit in really well with a team that plays a puck-possession game. Thinks the game well and is better skating alongside teammates that can play the game without the puck. Playmaker by nature, but don’t discount his scoring ability.
Brett Pollock’s hockey sense propelled him to a 55-point (25G, 30A) sophomore campaign after posting just four points in his WHL rookie season. During Edmonton’s run to the WHL Title, Pollock’s PPG improved as he tallied 19 points (11G, 8A) in 20 games to finish fourth in playoff scoring on the Oil Kings. A teammate of Isles’ prospect Griffin Reinhart, Pollock took home Canadian Junior Hockey’s top prize, the Memorial Cup, in May.

Pollock has really come along way this year. He's a power forward with skill and pretty good speed. A big, strong kid that’s not afraid to go to the front of the net.  Really good release and above-average shot.
