goalies defy draft logic

(PHOTO BY JON BLACKER)THE ONE THING MORE challenging than picking the Stanley Cup finalists – we’re looking at you, Winnipeg and Tampa Bay – is projecting which draft-eligible goalies are going to turn into stars or even NHL regulars. It’s a risky proposition that has scouts, and by connection Draft Preview through the years, wrong a lot more often than right.Take a look at the goalies who made it through the first round of this year’s very strange NHL playoffs. We see a lot of late-round draft gems, which is a theme in our NHL team stories in Draft Preview (pgs. 54-69). Two-time Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky was a late birthday available in the 2007 draft. He played just eight games that season for Metallurg in Russia, wasn’t on any…

what’s old is new as we become perfect (bound)

(PHOTO BY MICHELLE VALBERG)Dear readers,Draft Preview, one of our signature products, is always a special issue, but this year it carries even more weight than usual. The edition you’re holding marks the launch of a new era as we return to our longtime Transcontinental printer, RBW.Why should you care? Because the reconnection with the Owen Sound, Ont.-based printer allows us to deliver to you perfect-bound editions (the spine is glued, not stapled), with more pages per issue and a thicker cover. At a time when most of the publishing world is shrinking, we’re growing, reaching new plateaus in terms of quality and quantity. The Hockey News has never been better.For those of you not familiar, we were part of the Transcontinental family for decades. We were the first English-language title…

son of a gun, all grown up

ONE LOOK AT THE roster for USA Hockey’s under-17 development team for the 2019-20 season tells a pretty interesting story. First, it’s really, really good. At forward, you have Tyler Boucher, Redmond Savage, Ryan St-Louis, Caden Brown and Colby Saganiuk. See where we’re going here? What’s compelling is not that four of those five players descend from Canadian bloodlines, but that all five of them have a father or grandfather who played in the NHL.Which means the stands for their games will not only be chock full of NHL scouts scouring for 2021 draft talent, they’ll also be occupied by a group of former NHL players who combined for 3,142 games, scored 794 goals and 2,102 points, won a Stanley Cup and an Olympic gold medal and once had a…
