Reid Duke has been on the radar all season long, first on the “watch list” and then ranked in the top 100 North American Skaters at the mid-term rankings in January. Duke winds up ranked 137th among North American Skaters heading into the draft. The 18-year old native of Calgary put up solid numbers with 15G, 25A for 40 points in 62 games which was good for 3rd in team scoring.
Hurricanes listed player Chase Phelps is 163rd among North American Skaters. Phelps finished the year with 51 points in 39 games for Shattuck-St. Mary’s. He also played for Team USA at the U-18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament last August where the Americans claimed the Silver medal.
The 2014 NHL Entry Draft will be held June 27-28th at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The complete final rankings list can be found at www.nhl.co.
