The guy running the podium at the Draft called him "Eugene Grachef" - come on now. thats disrespectful, at least try to pronounce the kids name right.

Kinda of shocked. Thought we would get a lot more for a kid who was an OHL rookie of the year.

Sounded to me like Gorton thought Grachev was ready to give it a really good go in camp this year.

Well, thats their job, to evaluate these players. Another high school kid comes back, they are really going after these U.S. kids hard. Stepan, McDonagh, Jt Miller, Kreider, Hagelin, etc. Now this kid from MN.

Hope hes a Stepan 2.0
