2015 NHL Draft Guide: Top 5 Stickhandlers

Best stickhandler

No one in junior hockey came close to matching McDavid's catalogue of sensational dekes this season. "He can do so much with the puck at top speed, his hands are incredible," noted one scout. "He is going to bring Edmonton fans out of their seats frequently with his dazzling moves and quickness."

   Marner has such deft hands and patience with the puck, it makes it difficult to read what he is going to do. Barzal's speed, vision and coordination enable him to beat many opponents one-on-one, while Konecny wows the crowds, with quick feet, hands and mind. Eichel belies his size with fast feet and hands to go along with his great puck protection skills.
