Murphy

The Carolina Hurricanes have a lot of work to do on their prospect pool. That being said, they have strength in two areas, defensemen and size. With players like Ryan Murphy and Haydn Fleury, the Canes have a strong blueline future. Most of their prospects are also 6’1” or taller giving them very good size.

Nedeljovic had a weaker season in 2014-15, but not by as much as it would seem. Though his GAA rose above 3.0, he kept a save percentage of .916 this season. The Whalers as a whole was a weaker team than they once were and that affected Nedeljkovic. Expect a change in pace next season.

McKeown has looked good this season making him one of the pieces that sent Sekera to the LA Kings. McKeown played the last 4 games of the AHL season for the Checkers where he recorded his 1st pro point. That would be his only pt in 4 games.

Andrej Nestrasil was a pleasant surprise for the Canes after they picked him off waivers from the Detroit Red Wings. Nestrasil would continue to play in the NHL for the Canes where he would record 18pts in 41 games for them.

This list contains any skater below 100gp in the regular season and under the age of 26. For goalies it is under 50gp in the regular season and under the age of 26. Ranks 11-20 are on the 2nd page.
