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.
There are plenty of concerns with Covid19 right now and the World Junior Tournament scheduled to start in Edmonton on Christmas Day, is no exception. Craig and I discussed the concerns as well as what Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senator fans have to look forward to when the teams hit the ice.
From there we featured three mini profiles with Matthew Knies of Tri Cities in the USHL, Dovar Tinling of Vermont in the NCAA and Fyodor Svechkov of Lada Togliatti in the VHL/MHL.
