Crazy he's getting an ELC. Absolutely stunned. He's barely a Top 6 in Owen Sound at 18... Happy for the guy but at the same time, wow.

Don't forget Wayne Simmonds wasn't even rated going into his draft and the Kings took him in the second round. He came out of....you guessed it Owen Sound.

Not to mention the Kings have had fewer draft picks the last few years, and used many of them on OA players (only takes a few years to know if they are gonna make it or not) and college guys...I have a feeling they think they have the space available.
