The Carolina Hurricanes
 
Zach Boychuk
Meet Zach Boychuk, the Hurricanes' 2008 first-round pick. A highly skilled goal scorer, ISS says Boychuk has all the offensive tools; great touch, very good hockey sense- quick release and soft hands. Boychuk was one of the most dynamic players in the 2008 draft. Ranked No.12 by ISS heading into the draft, Boychuk is known for his great physical fitness. He was named MVP at the top prospects game. ISS notes that he does need to get physically stronger as he is small in size, but he is a very quick player.
