Two of the top QMJHL defencemen eligible for the 2018 NHL draft are maritime born Jared McIsaac of Truro and Noah Dobson of Summerside. The two were teammates this past summer capturing gold medal at the 2017 Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament and are now back helping their respective QMJHL teams. Both are being watched closely and currently NHL Central ranks McIsaac as a projected 1st round pick and Dobson as a 2nd/3rd round pick. NHL Central Director Dan Marr after a trip to the maritimes says Dobson is trending up.  Keep a close tabs on the two 17 year olds this season with the Acadie-Bathurst Titan and Halifax Mooseheads.  John Moore spoke with both players prior to a recent Mooseheads home game at Scotiabank Centre and asked both who they thought would be taken first in the draft.  You might be surprised by their responses.
