    Day 24 – St. Louis Blues

    In the last few seasons the Blues have developed a lot of high quality talent such as Alex Pietrangelo, David Backes and T.J. Oshie among others. The strength for St. Louis’ prospect system currently is the star forward depth. They have a few decent defensive prospects like Jordan Schmaltz, Jani Hakanpaa and Ian Cole. It should not be an issue with young blueliners, Kevin Shattenkirk and Pietrangelo starting to come into their own last season on a regular basis. The addition of elite forward talent like Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz makes an already deep team even deeper with top scoring line threats. The only problem with all this young talent will be finding the ice time to accommodate them all.
This is one team, which has an abundance of young talent both on their roster and into their system.

    RW - Vladimir Tarasenko (RUS) St. Louis Blues

    6’0’’ 185 lbs, 20 years

    The 2011-12 KHL season was huge for Tarasenko’s career. The 20-year-old Russian forward had about a point per game pace, which is even more impressive given that the KHL is a veteran-heavy league and that Tarasenko was traded during the season from Sibir Novosibirsk to SKA St. Petersburg. Blessed with tremendous offensive vision and with very few weaknesses in his overall game, Tarasenko has all the tools to be an elite player in the NHL. Following a report that he had his eyes set on starting his North American career next season with the Blues, Tarasenko could jump in immediately and pay dividends for St. Louis. He likely may take a season or a few months of playing to adjust. At the latest, in a year or two he will probably be showing signs of his top tier production level.

    Projection: Franchise forward
Potential Upside: 70-100 points (Adam Oates)
    ETA: 2012-13

    D - Jordan Schmaltz (USA) Green Bay Gamblers

    6’2” 195 years, 18 years

    If Schmaltz were to completely fill out his frame, there’s little doubt he could look like a Drew Doughty type player in the NHL. He’s big and a little lanky right now, but he’s skilled and supremely smart out there to always find ways to be a dominant force on the ice no matter the competition. His puck control is top notch and is great with this stick both protecting the puck and defensively. He’s not overly physical, but knows how to make it count when he does throw his body into a hit. He eats up minutes every game and inherited a good athleticism from his family, which includes NCAA hockey and football players. His younger brother Nick Schmaltz is already considered one of the top prospects for the 2014 NHL entry draft.

    Potential: Offensive defenceman

    Projected Upside: 65 points (Drew Doughty)
    ETA: 2015-16
