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.

Show Notes

In Time Machine on Tracking the Draft, former NHL GM and current Director of Scouting for TSN Craig Button tells a story regarding a past player and the NHL Draft while relating it to a player in this year's draft prospect pool. They could be Top 40 or beyond on the Craig's List. 

We were honoured to have the Head European Scout for Dobber Prospects, Jokke Nevalainen join us this week. Craig went back to 2012 when Esa Lindell was taken by the Dallas Stars and compared him to Joni Jurmo a fellow Finnish defenceman. Jokke and Craig debated the comparison and we went forward in time to look at Aatu Raty, who might end up being the first Finnish player taken first overall!
