On the eve of the 2019-20 NCAA hockey season, NHL.com introduced a new feature as “On Campus” spotlights some of the future NHL stars playing at the college level.

Award-winning journalist Mark Divver is writing the feature, which opened with a look at 10 drafted players to watch in college hockey this season.

“The 2019-20 NCAA Division I hockey season starts Saturday,” Divver writes, “and its importance to the NHL has never been more pronounced.”

Each of the 10 players profiled is a sophomore, junior or senior, and only two – Wisconsin’s K’Andre Miller (Minnetonka, Minn./U.S. NTDP/NYR) and North Dakota’s Jacob Bernard-Docker (Canmore, Alta./Okotoks-AJHL/OTT) – were first-round NHL draft picks.

Divver, a longtime journalist with the Providence Journal, also writes for USCHO.com. He was the 2019 recipient of Hockey East’s Joe Concannon Media Award.
