Liam Greentree, RW/Windsor Spitfires

Another player with a big frame is Liam Greentree, who stands at 6'2" and weighs 198 lbs. With that size comes more opportunities to use his skill sets, whether it's deterring defenders with his body or boosting his shot. It's made him a potent offensive prospect, boosting his NHL Draft profile in the process.

But his size isn't his main calling card. He's an intelligent player who scans the ice for the next play. Whether it's give-and-goes or delaying, he can make defenders look silly by changing up the pace. That comes with seeing everything unfold and looking at his obstacles, where he strategizes about his next move.

Bruce Cassidy and the Vegas Golden Knights pride themselves on looking at the next step. On the offensive rush, finding the open spot and capitalizing has been good with Vegas. With Liam Greentree, he'd be a great NHL Draft prospect to do the job. Imagine him setting up a pass to Jack Eichel for a goal on the rush. That would be excellent for the Golden Knights.
