The New Jersey Devils drafted Czech C Pavel Zacha with the No. 6 pick in Friday's NHL Draft.

Zacha, 18, scored 16 goals and 18 assists in 37 games for the Ontario Hockey League's Sarnia.

At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, The Hockey News ranked him the seventh-best prospect in the draft. More from The Hockey News:

Zacha has a combination of size and skill that makes him intriguing. "You look at his numbers and you might say he's underachieved, but there's something about this kid," said a scout. "Looks like a pro. Big power forward with skill. All-around solid player who competes."
