Brad Morrison could be the first real sleeper in the 2015 NHL Draft, as he is expected to go off the board in the fourth or fifth round. Again, Future Considerations are doing a good job in ranking him 94th, while NHL CSS have him ranked 124th (NA skaters).

Morrison is a speedy and very skilled forward that spent the 2014-15 season playing behind Prince George Cougars top-prospect Jansen Harkins. In the 2014-15 season, Morrison only recorded 49 points in 67 WHL games, though 23 of them were goals. That shows why he is ranked fairly low — if at all — by most scouting services. He will need more time to develop in junior hockey but could develop into a great sniping center.

What stands out about Morrison, as stated above, are his speed and individual skill. He works hard, but is too selfish at times. If he starts to help out his teammates more by passing them the puck instead of relying entirely on his own skill, he could really make it in the NHL.
