Kyle Pereira - Sep 17, 2016

Swedish hockey is taking a massive step forward this year. It has always been a powerhouse hockey country, but this season, it is on another level. In my rankings, there are seven Swedes projected to go in the first round. Of those seven, one forward by the name of Simon Robertsson sticks out. He has […]

2021 NHL Draft
Kyle Pereira - Sep 17, 2016

The 2021 NHL Draft does not pose the same excitement as the 2020 NHL Draft did. However, there are still plenty of players that teams can build around for the future. There’s another future star goaltender in this class, falling in line with goalies like Spencer Knight and Yaroslav Askarov before him. There are several […]

Carson Lambos
Gabriel Foley - Sep 17, 2016

Carson Lambos is one of many players in the 2021 NHL Draft class who could go first overall. But he’s far from earned the consensus.
