Who are the brightest young stars in the NHL? Here are our picks for the ones to keep your eyes on this season.
The 2018-19 NHL season is in full swing, and this year there is a talented crop of youngsters all hoping to become the next Wayne Gretzky. With several months still left until the players take their summer break, there is still plenty of time to make it even more interesting and place some bets on these youthful players. Check out your favourite online gambling guide for tips on how to get the most out of the rest of the season., Here we present three of the best and brightest NHL players under the age of twenty three, who we expect to see setting the ice on fire and making headlines this season. They have all managed to achieve glory already in their short NHL careers, and any one of them is worth a bet.,

1.      Connor McDavid

, This centre is a native Torontonian, and he’s making every Canadian hockey fan proud. Named captain of the Edmonton Oilers at the age of just nineteen, he became the youngest NHL player to hold the title. McDavid is no newcomer, despite his tender years. He was permitted into the Ontario Hockey League at the age of fifteen, a year younger than the official eligibility. He’s already had an unsettled career, missing three months and thirty seven games in his debut 2015-16 season, due to a broken clavicle., Nevertheless, McDavid didn’t slow down, and the following season he won both the Oilers captaincy and the Art Ross Trophy as the leading NHL scorer. The great Gretzky was younger when he won his first of many Art Ross Trophies, but if anyone can steal his crown it’s McDavid. Still only twenty two years old, he’s already been dubbed ‘the most highly evolved hockey player of all-time’ in the sports media, and his star continues to rise. If you’re looking for a sure thing in online gambling Canadathis season at top sites such as, nobody else comes close.,

2.      Patrik Laine

, Next up is a Finnish giant, in more ways than one. The right wing is now in his third NHL season, playing for the Winnipeg Jets. If you’re interested in online gambling for real money, having a punt on Laine might be worth your while. On the other hand, betting against him could possibly be more lucrative. Laine’s season got off to a slow start, and although he has come back with a vengeance, there’s a chance that he could have another lull before June., If you consult any online gambling guide about Laine’s chances, you’re likely to find short odds on outcomes such as being the top scorer in any given game. The Finn’s latest accomplishments place him firmly in the running as a contender for best NHL player of all time. On November 24 of the current season, he became the first player since Gretzky in 1984 to score five goals on five shots – the only chances he had for the whole match.,

3.      Brock Boeser

, Boeser could be the poster boy for the all-American hockey player, with his wholesome good looks and endearingly humble charm. Boeser made his mark as a young player to watch when he scored in his debut NHL match for the Vancouver Canucks, on the day that he was drafted in the middle of the 2016-17 season. Hockey enthusiasts who are also interested in Canada online gambling could do worse than to keep their eyes on Brock. He’s suffered several injuries that add a degree of uncertainty to his outcomes, including a back injury that ended his last season prematurely, and another to his groin that marred the start of the current season.,


, The current season has seen the debut of some exciting young players, most notably Elias Pettersson, Andrei Svechnikov and Rasmus Dahlin. A home-grown Canadian player to keep an eye on is Robert Thomas, a native of Ontario who joined the St. Louis Blues and made his NHL debut in October 2018. You’re sure to find these names in any good online gambling guide, and plenty of the online gambling sites Canada has will offer odds on various outcomes and players. Offshore sportsbooks can have better selections of different types of bet – just make sure to sign up with a well-accredited site, and your bets will be safe.
