My Draft Sleeper Pick

Posted 2:27 PM ET | Comments 1
Height: 5'11

Weight: 176 lbs.

ISS Ranking: 29

Name: Cody Eakin

Eakin currently plays for the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL and picked up 24 goals and 24 assists for 48 points in 54 games last season. He also racked up 42 penalty minutes during that span.

Eakin brings alot of grit and speed for a player of his size. Not afraid to go into the corners or drive to the net, he's a solid character player who is willing to do whatever it takes to help his team win.

While he is a natural center, he can also play wing as he did with the Canada Under-18 team this year. He also played on the top line and found great chemistry with John Tavares during the Top Prospects game.

A good two-way player, he brings solid offense and the ability to effectively kill penalties or spend time on the PP. What he lacks in size he makes up for in determination.

Comparable Players: Sami Kapanen, Tyler Kennedy, Oscar Moller

Possible Suiters: Carolina Hurricanes, Detroit Red Wings, New York Islanders
