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.
The future of the 2021 NHL draft is up in the air and Craig and I discussed a few different possibilities as well as 3 top notch players for whenever it's held. William Eklund is having a terrific season as an draft aged player in the SHL. Corson Ceulemans reminds Craig of a current Golden Knight, while Carson Lambos took on huge responsibilities on the back in in Winnipeg last year for the WHL's Ice.
I also asked Craig if there is a clear cut #1 for 2021 and we chatted about an expansion team in the Ultimate Fantasy Hockey League selling for $10,000 USD, and of course this isn't your Dad's fantasy league. We are talking NFTs on the Zilliqa Blockchain so these are digital assets, and it's about to blow up!
