Nic Dowd: The Long Shot Who Always Comes Through

Nic Dowd was thinking about quitting hockey eight years ago. How did Lloyd Donnelly help convince him otherwise?

Interesting piece. I recommend it. Beating the odds as a 7th-rounder, getting cut from the USHL...

Awesome article. It's really a testament to how dedicated ALL these kids are (not just Dowd) to chasing their dream.

Correct me if I'm thinking of a different prospect, but wasn't there a time he was considered to go top 3 or something like that?

You're probably thinking of Nick Ebert.

He was top-3 for the Hobey Baker

Crazy to think he was near quitting. Wish I had the kind of ability (not discounting his drive, of course) to come from the verge of "eh, maybe this isn't for me" to third-line center, lol.
