Craig Button is the Director of Scouting for TSN and joins Dean Millard each week for Tracking the Draft.
In Time Machine Craig tells a story regarding a past player and the NHL Draft while relating it to a player in this year's draft prospect pool. Jere Lehtinen won 3 Selke Awards and was the key cog on the great Stars teams of the 90's. So much so that Mike Modano would be upset if he was taken off his line at times. Luke Evangelista of the London Knights has similar characteristics according to Craig. He can play anywhere in the line up and with anyone.
