My notes on the Under-20 World Junior camps that took place a few weeks ago got backed up due to trying to get all the Top 10 Prospects columns done. I have notes on the U-20 players from Team Canada, Finland, Sweden, and USA from the two camps that took place. First up are Canada and Finland.
I'm not going to do full profiles on these three, but the reports on elite forward prospects Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Ryan Strome, and Jonathan Huberdeau are all about the same. Each had moments of very impressive offensive skills, but they didn't really dominate on a consistent basis. I'm not concerned in the least.
Michael Bournival, Center, Montreal Canadiens: I got a lot of reports on Bournival's skating the last year or so that have said things like, "good straight line skater, below-average at all his other skating elements", but I think his skating has gone to the next level. He didn't show a laggy first step, he and was moving at an average if not above-average level at times. If the improvement is for real, it could do a lot for his prospect stock.
