25. Brayden Point

Draft Year: 2014

Position: Forward

Just like Erne was passed over during the 2013 National Hockey League Entry Draft, the same thing happened to highly skilled forward Brayden Point, who continues to dominate Canadian Junior hockey and show teams what they could have had if they selected him earlier in the draft.

When we watched Brayden Point play for the first time I just could not keep my eyes off of him. He just kept jumping out and making play after the play that makes you wonder who that kid is. It was then that we started taking notes. Here is what we came up with.

"“Brayden Point is a fantastic hockey player. He is a dynamic puck carrier with the ability to dish out the puck to linemates and create scoring opportunities. Incredible playmaker. Above average wrist shot, vision. Hockey IQ off the charts. Incredible quickness and soft hands around the net. Tiny, but a future scoring star in the pros if he can add strength and can stay away from hard hits at pro level”"

Brayden Point will join the Syracuse Crunch next season and join an already skilled team looking to develop the organization’s pool of talented prospects. Just like top prospects before him, Point will jump into the Syracuse lineup and make an impact right away. Just like he does in Canadian Junior, Point will provide lightning quick speed and playmaking ability that will one day help him make it to the National Hockey League.
