Isles Talk 2015 Draft Preview: Jeremy Bracco

When it comes to the NHL draft, you think of Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel. The trick is to find that one player, that one diamond in the rough because after those two aforementioned players because it’s very unpredictable. If the Islanders somehow acquire a low first round or a high second round pick in this years draft, the Islanders may have scored a huge hit if they draft Bracco. He’s got a little bit of an attitude that has hindered his rankings with some of the media (Think Josh Ho-Sang) but, hopefully with time he will mature and he’s already committed to Boston College, so there will no rushing on the Islanders part to bring him up. Bracco reminds me of a Kirill Kabanov, Kirill Petrov, and Josh Ho-Sang: a huge risk/big reward type of pick, but if your looking for the next Tyler Johnson, with maturity and patience, Bracco may be the closest thing to him in this years draft.

Position: RW

Height/Weight: 5’10” 173lbs

Draft Rankings: Again to reiterate, I’m ranking these players based off of their availability in the draft, not so much on their talent level. Otherwise, Bracco would be a top 3 for now. If the Isles move up in the draft, my rankings will change.
