This week Craig and I discussed the importance of the recent Under 18 World Championship during a season with so few viewings. However basing so much on one viewing can be dangerous. Zachary Bolduc of Rimouski has always been a goal scorer, but this year developed his game even more. Isak Rosen has an NHL calibre release and Benjamin Gaudreau was a bright star on a struggling Sarnia team last year and led Canada to gold at the U18s.
What is #TrackingTheDraft with @CraigJButton?

A short Prospect News segment and a trivia contest will wrap around the draft discussion between Craig and Dean.
