Read on and flame away!
|1 F Sean Couturier L 07-Dec-92 6'3 193 Drummondville QMJHL CAN |
2 D Adam Larsson R 12-Nov-92 6'3 220 Skellefteå Elitserien SWE
3 F Ryan Nugent-Hopkins L 12-Apr-93 6'0 166 Red Deer WHL CAN
4 D David Musil L 09-Apr-93 6'3 191 Vancouver WHL CZE
5 F Matt Puempel L 24-Jan-93 6'0 205 Peterborough OHL CAN
