The Chicago Blackhawks
 
Kyle Beach
Meet Kyle Beach, the Blackhawks' 2008 first-round pick. Ranked 13th heading into the draft by ISS, Beach is a scorer with a nose for the net. ISS notes that while there are concerns over Beach's lack of discipline on and off the ice, he has tremendous offensive skill and knows how to use his size to get to the scoring areas. As be grows, he'll need to improve his skating and work on his defensive responsibilities.
