Leon Draisaitl is another great center in this year's stacked draft class. With great playmaking ability, Draisaitl is a player who would be an asset to any NHL team.

At 6'1'' and 209 pounds, Draisaitl has good size for a center and uses it to his advantage to protect the puck.

The German-born pivot played last season for Prince Albert in the Western Hockey League, posting 38 goals and 67 assists for 105 total points.

Draisaitl is one of the smartest players on the ice in this year's draft, and although he's not very physical, he uses his quick hands, smooth motions and exceptional size to dominate on the ice.

See who The Hockey News' Ryan Kennedy believes Draisaitl compares to and when he'll see time on NHL ice.
