Time is ticking closer and closer to the 2021 NHL Entry Draft, and it seems to be a matter of ‘when’ Colton Dach will be chosen rather than ‘if’.
The former 1st rounder of the Saskatoon Blades is slotted at 19th among North American skaters on NHL Central Scouting’s final rankings, making it a likely guarantee he’ll be selected at some stage.
Mitch and Les give the Fort Saskatchewan, AB product a call to hear how his preparation for the draft is going, and to get a sense of the attention he’s receiving from teams leading up to the big day.
The three also discuss the competitive sibling rivalry with older brother Kirby, and how life, in general, has been since leaving the Hub Centre in Regina at the end of April.
In what was a busy week full of headlines, the guys also dive into two recent prospect signings by the Saskatoon Blades, along with the division honours received by goaltender Nolan Maier and leading scorer Kyle Crnkovic.
After their chat with Colton, Mitch and Les share their opinions on the second-round playoff matchup between the Winnipeg Jets and Montreal Canadiens.
