Grads Stevens, Sarthou tabbed by NHL Central Scouting


Two former Los Angeles Jr. Kings - forward Nolan Stevens and goaltender Evan Sarthou - were recognized by NHL Central Scouting on its final rankings of 2016 draft-eligibles, which were released today.

Stevens, who just wrapped up his sophomore season at Northeastern University (Hockey East), which qualified for this year’s NCAA Division I National Tournament, is listed No. 209 among North American skaters.

In 41 games this year, Stevens struck for 42 points on 20 goals.

Sarthou, who recently completed his third season with the Western Hockey League’s Tri-City (Wash.) Americans, is tabbed No. 12 among North American goaltenders.

In 60 appearances on the year, Sarthou fashioned a 26-28-2 record to compliment a 3.46 goals-against average and a .888 save percentage.

The 2016 NHL Entry Draft will be conducted on June 24-25 in Buffalo.
