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 and discussed, here.
It was all about NHL bloodlines on this episode as we focused on three players whose fathers suited up in the NHL and had successful careers. Josh Doan is currently playing for the Chicago Steel and soon will be playing for his home state school at Arizona State University. Chase Stillman will be a member of Canada's upcoming Under 18 team and spent some time playing in Denmark while the OHL has been shut down. He's certainly not afraid to challenged defensemen one on one. Red Savage is part of the U.S. National program and will play at Miami University next season and projects to be a really smart, two way forward.
