Watch more NHL Draft on CHL TV

Dylan Cozens scored 34 goals and 84 points in his second full season with the WHL’s Lethbridge Hurricanes. The native of Whitehorse, Y.T., won the gold medal with Team Canada at the 2018 Hlinka Gretzky Cup, finishing with five points in five games. That performance followed up his impressive freshman campaign with the Hurricanes when he recorded 53 points in 57 games and was awarded with the Jim Piggott Trophy as the WHL’s Rookie of the Year. Cozens is the fifth-ranked North American skater in NHL Central Scouting’s Final Draft Rankings.

Cozens describes himself as a two-way centre with lots of speed who gets up and down the ice quickly. He models his game after fellow centre and Seattle Thunderbirds grad Mathew Barzal, a player he enjoys watching because of his skating and puck skills. Cozens’ offseason goal is to become stronger while also improving his quickness and acceleration.

“Elite skating ability with size, while playing a premium position as a right shot, Cozens checks a lot of boxes,” writes Sportsnet’s Sam Cosentino. “The question is if he’s a true centre or better suited to play the wing.”
