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, the stars of tomorrow are discovered here.
As we wait for seasons to get going we are doing mini profiles and chatting about the news in hockey. This week, it wasn't good as the world lost Howie Meeker and Jeopardy host Alex Trebek, both had a massive impact on TV and Alex Trebek even did some narration in the 60's of some Stanley Cup matches. Craig presents a tribute to both in Jeopardy style.
We also paid our respects to those who have fought for our freedom on Remembrance Day here in Canada and discussed Russia sending a U20 team and winning the Karjala Cup in Finland.
The 5 players we discussed are:
Brandt Clarke - D
Stanislav Svozil - D
Carson Lambos - D
Chaz Lucius - C
Benjamin Gaudreau - G
