    Day 16 – Nashville Predators

    Nashville has good depth in prospects especially on defense. They have a number of recently graduated young players under 25 that have already played more than 25 games for the Predators. Ryan Ellis (21), Craig Smith (22), Jonathan Blum (23), Gabriel Bourque (22), Roman Josi, (22), and Nick Spaling (23) have already played significant games for the Predators. There doesn’t look like any superstar players in their pipeline. But a nice mix of good players, role players and hard-workers should make their future a success. Their niche has been the drafting and development of defencemen and now if they can figure out how to translate that to forwards and goaltenders this team’s future could be bright.

    W - Taylor Beck (CAN) Milwaukee Admirals

    6’2”, 205 lbs, 21 years

    Drafted by Nashville in 2009 (3/70). A power forward that is willing to go to the net. Taylor uses his size effectively and works hard. He knows how to score. His skating could be improved and how much it improves will impact where and if he fits in at the NHL level. In his rookie season in the AHL he had 16 goals and 24 assists in 71 games with a minus 2 and 32 Penalty minutes. Another season or two in the AHL will give Beck the chance to hone his skating and overall skill to make him NHL ready.

    Projection: Top six forward
Potential upside: 30-50 points (Scott Hartnell)
    ETA: 2015-16

    D - Mattias Ekholm (SWE) Brynas IF

    6’4”, 204 lbs, 22 years

    Drafted by Nashville in 2009 (4/102). A solid all round defenseman with good skills. He was the Elitserien “Rookie of the Year” in the 2010-11 season with 10 goals and 23 assists in 55 games. His production fell off in his second year with nine goals and eight assists in an injury shortened 41 game season. He came over to North America and played two games with the Predators at the start of the season, with no points. Barry Trots felt he was not ready yet for the NHL and it was agreed by Nashville that he should go back and continue to play the rest of this season in Sweden. Ekholm has stated that he will be back playing in North America for the coming season. He may get another shot to make the team.

    Projection: Two-way defenseman

    Potential upside: 15-25 points (Cody Franson)
    ETA: 2014-15
