My first entry into the top 10 of the B2B NHL Entry Draft Preview is University of North Dakota recruit Tyson Jost. The 5’11”, 190lb center / left winger from St. Albert, Alberta, Canada has been playing for the Penticton Vees in the BCHL amassing a career stat line of 65-84-149 in 152 games. Let’s let Curtis Joe of Elite Prospects tell you more:
Tyson Jost is a crafty goal-scorer that carries out plays as quickly as he envisions them. As someone who thinks and plays at a fast tempo, it comes as no surprise that he creates a lot of energy as an offensive catalyst. He sees the ice very well and has the willingness and determination to win battles in the tough areas. All-in-all, a dynamic offensive forward with top-6 potential at the next level.
Just missing the top 10 on our list is one of the “big three defenders”, Olli Juolevi. The 18-year-old Finland native just completed his first year in the OHL, playing for the London Knights posting a stat line of 9-33-42 in 57 games played.
