I hope Zlobin makes it on the team and plays with Grigorenko for the years worth of additional hand-wringing it will bring to the Pouliot pick.

Also, 3 more points for Zlobin today, 2 goals and an assist.
I was at the game today, Zlobin was pretty good. Clearly Val d'Or's best player, but was overshadowed a bit by Jonathan Drouin for Halifax (who is deservedly seeing his draft stock skyrocket). Tough for him to shine overall though as Halifax was clearly the better team. First goal was a breakaway, deked around a pokecheck and slid it 5-hole on his back hand, second goal was a one timer from the faceoff circle on the PP and the assist was a pass from the corner cross crease for a one timer.
