McKenzie Ranks Two DU Recruits In Top 50

TSN Analyst Bob McKenzie ranked two incoming DU Freshmen as Top 50 Prospects for the 2010 NHL Draft on Friday. Beau Bennett came in at #18 and Jason Zucker was #44 on McKenzie's list.

McKenzie pointed out, "Some scouts have Bennett ranked as one of their Top 10 players eligible for the Draft."

McKenzie is pretty respected up North with his picks for the Draft. Bennett at #18 means that he might have a shot at being a mid-first round pick.

What can we expect from Bennett? Is he a potential Bozak in the making?

Bennett may be a little more "raw" than Bozak as a Freshman. Bozak was 21 years old, Bennett will be 18.

Bozak was probably better defensively and more of an all round player.

Bennett should be awesome on the power play and has a great shot.

All that being said, Bennett's going to be a first rounder while Bozak was never drafted.
