I’m excited to share this one because he’s expected to be a top-5 pick in this year’s NHL Draft, Dylan Guenther @_dylanguenther -
1. Dylan is a smooth skating, offensively gifted Canadian right winger of Indian descent from Edmonton. His game is often compared to that of @tseguin92.
2. He was a superstar for the @northern_alberta_xtreme hockey club, where he won two championships, dominating his U-15 season with 103 points in 30 games in 2017-2018, followed by another impressive season with the U-18 squad notching 58 points in 28 games.
3. Dylan’s skating ability and scoring prowess led to his being drafted 1st overall by the @edmoilkings in the 2018 @westernhockeyleague Draft.
4. Dylan made an immediate impact with the Oil Kings as he scored 59 points in 58 games to capture the WHL Rookie of the Year in the 2019-2020 season.
5. Dylan was an assistant captain this past season for the Oil Kings and scored 24 points in 12 games during the shortened season. He also put on an astounding display at the @iihfhockey World Junior Championships, winning a Gold medal with 7 points in 7 games. Dylan is an exciting player to watch and has been a consistent scorer through all levels of hockey. While I don’t think he will be around when my @lakings make their selection, he will be a fun player to follow as his size and talent will inevitably translate to stardom in the @nhl.
