June 2015 - The Nashville Predators selected skilled forward Thomas Novak with the 85th pick of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross

 

May 2015 – Former 3rd overall pick of the USHL Draft, Thomas Novak is a skilled playmaking pivot with high hockey sense. He was a point-per-game forward in his first year in the USHL scoring 14 goals while piling up 34 assists for the Waterloo Black Hawks. Novak’s intelligence allows him to anticipate plays and read the ice which are vital advantages for a high-end set-up man like himself. Committed to the University of Minnesota, Novak is a potential first round selection for the 2015 NHL Draft and many believe this highly skilled centerman will explode as a late bloomer. Brendan Ross

 

Fantasy Outlook: B-

Playmaking skilled centerman with top-six upside.
