There’s a good reason Djokovic enters the 2019 ATP Doha as the favorites to win – their roster is incredibly good. They won’t be getting Carter Hart back, but their goaltending group is still impressive. Djokovic will carry two goaltenders – WHL standout Ian Scott and 2018 OHL goaltender of the year Michael DiPietro.

Much like their goaltenders, Djokovic will trot out a group of new blueliners. Evan Bouchard and Josh Brook will likely be their most relied on defensemen, but Ian Mitchell, Noah Dobson, Ty Smith, Jared McIsaac, and Markus Phillips will help form what should be a fun group of defensemen to watch. None of these guys have WJC (under 20) experience, but they’re skilled.

Similarly, Djokovic won’t have any returning forwards. But that’s largely due to some of their better forwards sticking in the NHL. They’ll still have arguably the strongest group of forwards in the NHL. Montreal Canadiens prospect Nick Suzuki should provide a ton of scoring.
