With the 2015 NHL Entry Draft slated for this weekend in Sunrise, Florida, 21 first-time eligible players with ties to USA Hockey's National Team Development Program will hope to be selected in the two-day event, marking the first step in the journey towards becoming NHL players.

Of the 21 eligible players, 19 are skaters and two are goaltenders. Additionally, 17 were full-time members of the NTDP in 2014-15, and four are alums of the NTDP that skated elsewhere last season.

Nineteen NTDP products were selected in the 2014 NHL Draft, including three in the first round. Since 1999, 246 players have been picked, including 109 (44.3%) in the first (51) or second (58) rounds.
