The NHL entry draft took place in LA tonight, and our 3 OHL teams were well represented in the first round.
Burmistrov (Barrie) going at #8 to Atlanta.
Hishon (Owen Sound) going at #17 to Colorado
Watson (Ptbo) going at #18 to Nashville
My attention was on the #11 pick, belonging to the Dallas Stars. Who would they draft? They need some help on defense. They are also losing Marty Turco, their #1 goaltender, this off season, so maybe a goalie would be a wise choice?
They elected to go with the guy who helped the U.S. beat Canada at the World Juniors this past year, Windsor Spitfire: Jack Campbell.
5 years and Crystal will be taking me to Hawaii after Campbell leads Dallas to the cup!
