Duncan Siemens. A little bit of a reach, being taken 11th overall at the 2011 draft, he is currently more of a mystery than anything else. Was he worth the pick? Probably not, but he can still turn into a very valuable player for the Avalanche.

He has been working hard, especially after struggling with injuries in both seasons with the Lake Erie Monsters, and finally earned himself a first call-up for the last regular season game of 2014-15 against the Blackhawks. While he was not outstanding by any means, he did show that he has the potential to play in the NHL one day. When that day will come, though, is still a mystery.

NHL-ready: 2016-17
