There's a whole lot to like about Matthew Tkachuk, son of former NHLer Keith Tkachuk. He's big, he's tough, he's got a great shot and impressive vision and playmaking ability. As the fifth ranked prospect on our list, he falls right into the wheelhouse of some Canadian teams, making the locals pay even closer attention.
But Tkachuk hasn't been without his detractors, and while you certainly can't claim that he isn't incredibly talented, there is a case to be made that his numbers have been inflated a bit because of who he spent the 2015-16 season playing with. Read on to find out more.
