Every Thursday 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, the stars of tomorrow are discovered here.
Brandon Wheat King forward Ridly Greig isn't always the biggest dog in the fight, but he never backs down from one. Craig says while he has plenty of smarts and will, don't underestimate his skill level and we discussed a few other former Brandon Wheat Kings Ridly compares too. We jumped ahead to 2021 where Craig told a terrific story about how Zachary Bolduc ended up in Rimouski, it's really cool. Will there be a drop off next year when Alexis Lafreniere is a New York Ranger?
