More about Nathan MacKinnon

Not since Sidney Crosby has there been as much buzz surrounding a prospect. Following a nearly identical path to Crosby through the youth ranks, MacKinnon was on the radar of NHL scouts years before becoming draft eligible. The native of Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia tore it up at the junior level while playing for the Halifax Mooseheads, scoring 153 points in just 102 games during his tenure with the QMJHL club. Not only did he star for his junior team, but he was an impact player for Team Canada at the World Junior Championships as well. Just 17 years of age at the time, and playing in a tourney pre-dominantly made up of 19 year-olds, MacKinnon was exceptional in limited minutes with the team.

Though MacKinnon started the year as NHL Central Scouting’s consensus number one draft pick he saw his ranking slip with the emergence of Portland Winterhawks’ star blueliner Seth Jones, a hulking, mobile d-man that was a standout for the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL as well as a key contributor to Team USA’s gold-medal run at the World Juniors. Not only did Jones surpass him, but some scouts even penciled in MacKinnon’s super-skilled teammate and linemate, Jonathan Drouin, ahead of him in the draft rankings.

The tight battle between the three continued to rage, but it was MacKinnon’s incredible performance at the Memorial Cup that really elevated him back to the number one spot in the eyes of the scouts. MacKinnon notched 13 points in just 4 games, including a hat trick in the finals to give his Mooseheads the victory. That performance showcased not only his incredible skill but also highlighted his ability to find a new level at clutch moments.

The Colorado Avalanche made no secret that they would select MacKinnon if they still held the number one pick when draft day came. Other teams tried to acquire the pick, but the Avs held firm and it was no surprise when MacKinnon was called to the stage with the first overall pick that day.

Whether MacKinnon can flourish in the NHL the way Sidney Crosby has remains to be seen. He has all the tools to be a dynamic NHL star for many years to come. While he might not reach the stratospheric heights that Crosby has, there is a very good chance he will carve his own niche in the game, and you can bet you’ll see plenty of Avs fans sporting a Nathan MacKinnon jersey in the 2013-14 season.
