Every Thursday former NHL GM, Stanley Cup Champion and Director of Scouting with TSN, Craig Button and Dean Millard explore prospects for the NHL Draft. From Top Shelf Talent to The Next Wave to Time Machine and more, the stars of tomorrow are discovered here.
Drew Commesso had elite numbers in net for the USNDT against teams in the USHL and from the start of the season until things were shut down he continued to improve, not just his numbers but his fundamentals in the crease. He also has some options for his future as he's slated to attend Boston University where he will be afforded the time he needs to develop, and if he changes his mind the Quebec Remparts hold his QMJHL rights and can boast one of the greatest goalies of all time as their Head Coach and GM.
Alexander Pashin is a small speedy skilled forward who could go on to great things, if he makes better decisions. If the happens he could be a home run as he plays on the edge and his edge work and hands are dynamic.
