    ďSimilar to former high school teammate Mitchell Mattson, Hain is a good example of why scouts want to push players to play in better leagues. I donít think staying in Grand Rapids would have changed the trajectory of Hainís career in any appreciable way. But if he had stayed and dominated in HS again, odds are he might have been a second or third round pick. Playing with the NTDP this year against much faster competition, Hainís skating ability has kept him from being able to use his terrific shot as much, making him a less effective player, and probably pushing him into the later rounds of the draft. Playing up doesnít necessarily make a player better, but it does make them easier to evaluate.Ē
