I don't think there's much of a chance we take Mayfield. If he wasn't interviewed until the very end, or not at all, I don't think he's a player we are targeting at #27.

I could see us taking Connor Murphy or Ryan Sproul if we take a defenseman. Murphy has an amazing work ethic, and after picking Connolly last year at 6, I don't think they will be scared away from past injuries. Sproul is a little off the board, but I've seen him go around the end of the 1st in a couple mocks. If our scouts have been watching Beukeboom play for the greyhounds, they should know a little more about this kid. Last year they showed they didn't have a problem picking what could of been a one-year-wonder dman who came out of nowhere with Geoffrey Schemitsch who also played in a lower level canadian league before joining the OHL.

I have a hunch though they really hope they can snatch up Rocco Grimaldi.
