Five players to watch

December 26, 2008

1. Cody Hodgson, Canada

The buzz is around John Tavares, but the Canucks' first-rounder is a leader and Canada's best centre.

2. Colin Wilson, USA

The son of former NHLer Carey Wilson is tearing up the college ranks with Boston University.

3. Mitch Wahl, USA

The kid from California won a Memorial Cup with Spokane last spring and the Americans will need secondary scoring behind Wilson's line.

4. Oscar Moller, Sweden

Moller has 30 NHL games with Los Angeles under his belt this season and will be counted on to provide leadership on a young and talented Swedish team.

5. Nikita Filatov, Russia

With the tragic passing of Alexei Cherepanov, Filatov, the Columbus first-rounder, becomes the focal point of a Russian team which could surprise.
