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.
In The Next Wave on Tracking the Draft, former NHL GM and current Director of Scouting for TSN, Craig Button and Dean Millard discuss players ranked outside of the top 40 on Craig's List, who are projected to go after the first round, where great players, superstars and Hall of Fame players have been taken. Dmitri Zlodeyev is a really solid all around player that Craig thinks every coach and linemate will love. He knows his limitations and plays to his strengths. Tyler Tullio is a buzz saw kind of player with a non stop motor and the ability to play with high end players and contribute, meaning he could find a fit on a top line.
