The Canucks 4th Round selection sees them heading back to school to select LW Jackson Kunz.

NHL: NHL Draft Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Another work in progress pick for the Canucks with their 2nd selection at this year’s NHL Entry Draft as they choose LW Jackson Kunz. He spent the last two seasons with the famed Shattuck St Marys Prep School program, putting up 62 goals in 78 games including 40-29-69 in 45 nice games last season. He’s going to be with the USHL’s Green Bay Gamblers this season before heading to the University Of North Dakota.

Kunz is one of the youngest players in this year’s draft, so don’t expect to hear much about him for a while as he transitions from junior to the NCAA. NHL Central Scouting had him ranked at #94 among North American skaters, so this could be a pick to keep an eye on down the road when we start evaluating the Canucks scouting department’s post-Judd Brackett era.
