In Top Shelf Talent on Tracking the Draft, former GM and current Director of Scouting for TSN, Craig Button and I discuss players who are projected to go in the first round, choosing from the Top 40 on Craig's List.

Show Notes

With the 'Lafreniere Lottery' now over and Alexis Lafreniere's destination known (unless a trade happens) it was time to feature the Top Dog on Top Shelf Talent.  The left winger who is the two time reigning CHL Player of the Year is ranked #1 on Craig's List and we discussed how he matches up with recent first overall picks and the specifics of his game, plus how he fits in on Broadway.
