The Carolina Hurricanes chose Ryan Suzuki with the 28th overall pick at the 2019 NHL Draft.

Ryan Suzuki

Position: Forward
Height: 6-feet
Weight: 181 lbs
Age: 18
Club: Barrie Colts (OHL)
Nationality: Canada

Suzuki led the Colts in points this past season, and the London, Ontario-born center's goal production ranked second on the club in 2018-19.

He dropped eight spots between the two editions of the NHL Central Scouting rankings of North American skaters, sliding from 10th at the midterm down to 18th on the final list, perhaps in part because his OHL club struggled this year.
