John Tavares, Aaron Ekblad, Connor McDavid, Sean Day, Joe Veleno, Shane Wright & Connor Bedard all have one thing in common, they were granted exceptional Status.


Jaraj Slafkovsky, who helped Slovakia win the Men's Hockey Bronze medal at the 2022 Beijing Olympics was the talk around town last year in Bratislava, this year it's Nela Lopusanova.
The fourteen-year-old who is competing at the under-18 women's world hockey championship and just pulled off one of the better «Michigan» goals you'll ever see plays at home in the U16 men's league.
Lopusanova who stands 5'7 & 145lbs has 15 goals and 31 points in ten games played. When compared to Slafkovsky's numbers in the same league, Lopusanova holds an edge of 3.10 points per game to Slafkovsky's 2.34.
We could be legitimately seeing the first woman drafted into the NHL, but we'd have to wait as her draft year isn't until 2026.
