9. Detroit Red Wings

Kimelman -- Zach Benson, LW, Winnipeg (WHL): Benson was the leading scorer (98 points in 60 games) on the best team in the WHL during the regular season, one that featured two first-round NHL draft picks, Geekie and Matt Savoie (Buffalo Sabres). His work ethic is one of his best assets, and he's fearless when it comes to going to the dirty areas to produce offense, similar to Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher.

Morreale -- Oliver Moore: Moore has elite speed and is a potential top-line NHL player. It's possible he's moved to wing at the next level, but he did have 75 points (31 goals, 44 assists) in 61 games with the NTDP.

17. Detroit Red Wings (from New York Islanders via Vancouver Canucks)

Kimelman -- Colby Barlow, LW, Owen Sound (OHL): Barlow showed a great scoring touch this season, finishing fifth in OHL with 46 goals in 59 games. He has a high-end shot that is reminiscent of Sabres forward Jeff Skinner. Barlow can skate the puck into the offensive zone and is strong enough (6-foot, 190) to win battles along the wall. He also can be used on the penalty kill, and projects to give the Red Wings an all-around forward who can play anywhere on their top two lines.

Morreale -- Dmitri Simashev, D, Yaroslavl Jr. (RUS-JR): The 18-year-old plays a strong physical game and has good size (6-4, 198). He's competitive, alert and active in all three zones.
