A first round draft pick of the Moose Jaw Warriors in the WHL's 2007 Bantam Draft, Quinton Howden started slow, but quickly picked up the pace in the 2009-2010 season, more than doubling his point production from the 30 points he had in his rookie season and boosting his +/- from an abysmal -37 to a respectable +14 this year. Playing for both the WHL's Team West and Team Canada's U-18 squad, Howden shows a great deal of potential if he can continue to grow into his body and improve his play away from the puck.
Next up, the Buffalo Sabres.
