Cole Ully is one of those players you notice when he plays. Always seems to be ranked close to Greg Chase in Calgary, but I like Ully a lot more.

Wouldn't want him until the 4th though.

Wish we had 10+ picks this year.
No footage, i did try to find some. Most of the info i can get are from those Ontario scouts like LaFortune & co. But I too am very intrigued. I think I mentioned this before, but his season this year is better than Devin Shore's who went at the end of the 2nd round and Shore has had an excellent year as a rookie in the NCAA. Although not guaranteed to follow to same development path, I still think Buckles would have good value in the 3rd and would be very happy to get him with our 3rd. Buckles plays a pro style game, is a natural goal scorer (4th in the OJHL this season), and has a winning attitude.

Ully sounds like a good gamble in those later rounds.
