I thought it might be Borowiecki but I have no idea how hes performing so wasnt too sure if pro hockey was in his future.

With that said if he does sign 4 of our 6 picks we'll be under contract from that draft and possibly 5 if petersson can figure out his injury. Not a bad thing considering it was only 3 years ago
He's been great and was named captain this year for the Clarkson Golden Knights. He isn't a big offensive guy on the backend but he's very sound defensively.. and was named the CJHL Best defensemen before going to the NCAA. He's very good friends with a lot of my buddies and I see him a few times in the year.. I personally don't know if he'll want to leave school early as he was just named captain this year.. but I guess we shall see what goes down if the rumours are true.

It actually makes sense for him to come out. Teams would rather they turn pro then remain in college, as it allows the Sens to monitor his day to day growth. Teams are always encouraging players to leave after they are 20.

Really interested to see Grant develop in the system. One the guys i have been most interested in following. Same with Greening and Condra when they were at university.
I hope he does well so people will at least agree that picks below the 3rd round are not completely useless.

Yeah I guess you don't want to waste any years towards UFA when you could have him under your control.
