Three Blades Ranked For Upcoming NHL Draft

Brandon Lisowsky, Egor Sidorov, and Charlie Wright have been listed on the NHL Central Scouting final season rankings for the upcoming 2022 NHL Entry Draft.

Sophomore winger Brandon Lisowsky leads the way coming in at 74th overall amongst North American skaters thanks to his impressive 33-goal and 58-point campaign this season. The recently turned 18-year-old also shared the team lead in post-season points with five in as many games, and was one of two Blades players this season to appear in all 68 regular season contests.

Fellow winger Egor Sidorov is close behind coming in at 95th on the North American skaters list. The Belarusian import enjoyed his first season in the Western Hockey League, tallying 23 goals and 35 points in 58 outings. Sidorov added a goal and two helpers in five playoff games and represented his home country of Belarus back in December at the IIHF World Junior D1A tournament with three points in five bouts.

Charlie Wright rounds out the trio of Blades on the final rankings list coming in at 142nd. It’s rare for a three-year veteran of the WHL to be entering their first year of draft eligibility, but Wright is the rare exception due to his late birthday and his strong play that earned him a full-time spot on the roster back in 2019-20 as a 16-year-old. Wright set a career high in points this season with 19 from the backend, and was leaned upon heavily down the stretch of the season and into the playoffs due to the injuries of Aidan De La Gorgendiere and Rhett Rhinehart.

The 2022 NHL Draft is scheduled for Thursday, July 7 and Friday, July 8 in Montreal, Que.
