In The Next Wave on Tracking the Draft, former GM and current Director of Scouting for TSN, Craig Button and I discuss players who are projected to go after the first round, where great players, superstars and Hall of Fame players have been taken.

Show Notes

In The Next Wave we feature a defenceman from the USNDT who is off to Michigan and play for the Wolverines. Jacob Truscott uses his wheels to defend and his mobility comes in handy when starting the play out of his own end. He has the potential to make people wonder why he was drafted so low if he ends up in the 2nd round. Jack Finley is a big centreman who plays for the Spokane Chiefs. He is a tough guy to move from in front of the net and Craig says he has 'finishing hands' when in tight. Like most young guys going through a growth spurt things can be awkward, but Finley could be a force when he gets comfortable with his body structure.
