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.
This week Craig and I focused on the upcoming World Junior Championship. From what 2021 draft prospects to watch for to the Oilers, Flames and Canucks prospects in the tournament as we wrapped up our Canadian NHL team focus. We also discussed how trades happen and one hilarious story about a trade request to Craig when he was the GM of the Flames. We wrapped things up by chatting about some key players for a few countries who are and are not in this tournament. Craig and his TSN colleagues will have a tournament preview show on Christmas Eve.
