Here are seven prospects eligible for the 2019 NHL Draft whose stock rose at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup, the annual under-18 tournament that ended Saturday night with Canada's 6-2 victory against Sweden in the gold medal game (prospects in alphabetical order).
Philip Broberg, D, Sweden
An excellent skater, the defenseman (6-foot-3, 198 pounds) wowed the crowd with his sweeping rushes and his effective breakouts. He scored three goals, including one on the power play, in five games.
"He solidified himself as being one of the top prospects available (in 2019)," said Dan Marr, director of NHL Central Scouting. "He'll definitely be in the conversation as far as the first few picks go."
Maxim Cajkovic, RW, Slovakia
The speedy forward (5-foot-11, 187) showed off some solid puck possession skills. He had two goals and two assists in four games.
"I'm fast, but I need to improve my skating every day," said Cajkovic. "There's a lot of room for me to improve right now. I think I'm getting bigger and better, that's important for me."
Dylan Cozens, C, Canada
A talented playmaker with size (6-foot-3, 181) and speed, Cozens scored two goals and had three assists in five games.
