UPSIDE: 2nd Line Playmaking Center or Bust

Thomas Novak is a very good skater and an even better playmaker. I think he tops out as a 2nd line center and that’s if he makes it. I don’t see him as a depth player so it’s either he makes it in that role or he doesn’t. A lot of things will need to go right for him to develop into that, first and foremost he needs to get bigger and stronger. I won’t be surprised if someone takes him in late in the first round. Decent risk to take at this point in the draft.
