Congrats to both Nolan Dejong and Dante Hahn for being two of the six BCHL player prospects to be selected in the NHL's Central Scouting preliminary futures list for the 2013 draft.
This is a great achievement for both players as they look to build on their early success in their hockey careers.
Nolan Dejong, had a tremendous rookie year last season, playing like seasoned BCHL vet rather than a 16 year old rookie. Dejong, is a defender who doesn't make a lot of mistakes, has great hockey sense and creates opportunities for the team whenever he's part of the attack. A solid two way player. With a scholarship to Cornell already tied up, at 17 the skies the limit for Nolan.
Dante Hahn, has been a nice addition to the team this season and looks he could put up some promising numbers this year. Dante, combines his size, skill and skating and looks like a well rounded Junior player at this stage. Hahn, in his BCHL rookie year, has formed a solid second line with Hartskamp and Skrbich.
At 17, I'm sure numerous NHL and NCAA organisations are keeping an eye on Dante at this point.
