Hitmen Director of Player Personnel, Nick Perri:
We are thrilled with how our draft played out. It was exciting to be able to draft prospects who we’ve closely watched for the past two or three seasons.
In the days leading up to the draft, we worked around the clock preparing our draft board by connecting with players, families, coaches, and advisors to ensure that we were selecting individuals who wanted to play at a high level of junior hockey and beyond.
We’ve added a good blend of local talent and national talent to improve our prospect pool and better our future and the future of the NCDC. We look forward to seeing our prospects at the main camp in July and molding a relationship for the future.
