How could we not mention Jack Eichel on this list right? Poised to challenge the great Connor McDavid for the first overall pick in the 2015 NHL draft all eyes in the NCAA world will be on Eichel and Boston. He had 5 assists in his debut with Boston and will be compared all year long with McDavid.

On top of the high expectations from the hockey world at Boston University, Eichel will also be called upon to lead the charge of Team USA’s U20 team at the upcoming World Junior Championships. You can see the headlines now; Eichel’s team USA defeats McDavid’s Canadians. McDavid gets the upper hand in the World Match between Eichel.
