NHL Draft 2011 Prospects: Tomas Jurco Best Available On Day Two

One day down, one to go at the 2011 NHL Draft in St. Paul, Minnesota. In the draft's first round on Friday night, there was a strong international presence, as only four NCAA hockey players were selected.

Entering day two, which features Rounds 2-7 and begins at noon on NHL Network, there is plenty of talent left in the draft, but who are the best of the best?

Tomas Jurco is listed as the best available prospect according to ESPN's Gare Joyce entering the draft's second day. Jurco, who played with the Saint John Sea Dogs of the QMJHL for the past two seasons, drew high praise from Joyce.

Jurco reminds scouts of Marian Hossa. He is an explosive skater with lots of skill and proved his value when the games mattered the most. Arguably one of the best players in the Memorial Cup field.

Check out Joyce's top ten prospects heading into day two here.
