10. Julius Honka, Dallas Stars
It is absolutely true that Julius needs additional seasoning in AHL. He is expected to be providing the Dallas Stars one of the right hand shooters. I must say Julius Honka needs much more training before he, next time, enters the game. Unfortunately he is lacking the defensive powers.
9. Derrick Pouliot, Pittsburgh Penguins

Last season, Derrick made 17 goals and 70 points. He is called to be one of the rookies of NHL. He strongly needs to covet for his offensive instinct.
8. Darnell Nurse, Edmonton Oilers
Darnell Nurse is one more name in our list. He made a surprising entry in NHL 2013. Nowadays, Darnell has been busy in the production at a point-per-game clip for the Sault Ste. He needs to transform his skills and capabilities in a better way.
7. Sam Bennett, Calgary Flames
Sam Bennett has suffered from several injuries. He had gotten a serious shoulder injury last year in October. But this seems to have not impacted his gaming skills, because, according to a news, we’ll be able to see Sam in the next season. He has so far made around 32 goals and 92 points in over fifty games of Kingston Frontenacs during a season.
6. William Nylander, Toronto Maple Leafs

5. Teuvo Teravainen, Chicago Blackhawks
Teuvo Teravainen is yet another explosive NHL prospect of the era. He has found his own way towards success. The Blackhawks has utilized puck-possession system that can reduce the hits and block the shots. Teuvo is likely to score better in the upcoming season of NHL. Let us see!

3. Anthony Mantha, Detroit Red Wings
Anthony Mantha had shown great performances in 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He was raised from fifty one to one hundred and twenty points in a couple of seasons in QMJHL with the Val d’Or Foreurs. This is a 6 foot high player who gives heavy shots.
2. Darnell Nurse, Edmonton Oilers
Darnell Nurse from the Edmonton Oilers has extreme level of potential. Presently, he has been producing at a point-per-game clip for the Sault Ste. It is hoped that this NHL prospect will improve his overall performance in the upcoming years.
