The Stars of tomorrow are discovered here, Every Wednesday former NHL GM, Stanley Cup Champion and Director of Scouting with TSN, Craig Button and I explore prospects for the NHL Draft. From Top Shelf Talent to The Next Wave to Time Machine and more.
This week we discussed the future of the 2021 NHL draft. Will it happen this year or be pushed back to next year, and what kind of format would that look like? To me the NHL has an opportunity to do the right thing by the prospects, scouts and teams by pushing it back a year and then making it a back to back weekend summer event. As for the players in 2021 we chatted about there was a common theme between Luke Hughes, Matthew Beniers and Mackie Samoskevich. We also weighed in on some of the moves Duckman's Domination made in the UFHL this week that involved adding picks and prospects that Craig recommended.
