Welcome back from the long weekend! To help you through the start of another work week, check out Jack Roslovic's highlights from this past season at Miami University.

Roslovic had a successful freshman season, scoring 26 points in 36 games. His point total tied him for the team lead with the Blackhawks' 2013 6th round pick Anthony Louis.

With the draft one month away it's time to start ramping up our focus towards it even more.

Most of the talk so far has been surrounding the real top tier players of the draft like Auston Matthews and Patrik Laine.  But there are six more rounds past the first one, and there are plenty of future NHLers that'll come out of this draft that up until now you've never heard of in your life.

Luckily, we have little tricks to help us try and identify who those players might be.
