He has been consistently solid in the AHL - 27 points in 30 games this season and 42 points in 56 games last year, among others.

Kirkland, 26, is also a third-round pick. He has played seven games this season for the Anaheim Ducks and has 13 points in 19 AHL games.

Tierney, 28, is probably the most "well-known" name on this list. He is a second round pick and already has 229 points (75 goals) in his NHL career.

He has played 13 games with the Florida Panthers this season and has 16 points in 20 AHL games.

Tierney has 48 points in 2019 with the Ottawa Senators, after being involved in the monster trade that sent Erik Karlsson to the San Jose Sharks.
