Prospects Analysis: Metropolitan Division

This article is part of our Prospects Analysis series.

This is the second of a four-part series that will cover our the top-10 prospects of each individual team by division leading into the 2015-16 season. Now, onto the rankings…

(Notes: Overall ranking in parenthesis. Only players with less than 25 games played are included.)

Carolina Hurricanes

1. Noah Hanifin - D (11)
2. Haydn Fleury - D (61)
3. Sergey Tolchinsky - F
4. Brett Pesce - D
5. Roland McKeown - D
6. Alex Nedeljkovic - G
7. Sebastian Aho - F
8. Warren Foegele - F
9. Jaccob Slavin - D
10. Phil Di Giuseppe - F

Tolchinsky has 186 points the last two years for Sault Ste. Marie (OHL). He was signed as an undrafted free agent. He will spend his first year in the AHL this fall. Pesce spent three years as a regular for the University of New Hampshire and then signed with Carolina this spring. He plays a very safe, efficient game and will head to the AHL for this coming year. McKeown was Carolina's big return for sending Andrej Sekera to the Kings. As long as he isn't trying to do too much, he has the skills to play an effective two-way game. He needs one final season in the OHL. Nedeljkovic had a lousy year playing for a bad team in Plymouth (OHL). He isn't very big and relies on his positioning to be successful. Aho spent this past year playing against men in Finland and was the 35th overall pick
