He is valued as a third round selection, but it is not ridiculous to take him in the second.

7/9/2013 8:24:00 PM
Description: The Avalanche have signed 2013 No. 1 overall pick Nathan MacKinnon to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Insight: MacKinnon, who is still just 17 years old, produced 75 points in 44 games this past season for the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Colorado already has talented young forwards Ryan O'Reilly (22 years old), Paul Stastny (27), Gabriel Landeskog (20) and Matt Duchene (22) and veteran P.A. Parenteau on the top lines, so MacKinnon isn't guaranteed a spot that is conducive to fantasy success right away.
 
6/30/2013 8:20:00 PM
Description: The Avalanche selected center Nathan MacKinnon with the first pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.
Insight: The 17-year-old from Canada produced 75 points in 44 games this past season for the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. We won't know quite what to expect from MacKinnon until we see him in uniform but he's already being compared to fellow Nova Scotian Sidney Crosby.
