Exactly. They left some kids on the board who might have been "sexier" picks in terms of how often they were discussed, and how many YouTube videos are out there, but these kids we took are all very skilled forwards. It just so happens that they all have the other criteria our scouts are looking for: Work ethic, character, and two-way ability.

Very pleased with how things went.
