He also was an assistant captain on the recent gold medal U20 USA hockey team in the world junior championships

In laymens terms he is almost like a magic johnson hockey wise. Hes tall but still can move the puck. I saw him in that tournament and i think homes gunna be a problem in the NHL.

The way the NHL draft works is you get drafted around 18 years old. You then have a few choices you can either.

-Play directly in NHL/minor league farm system
-Play college hockey for 1-4 years
-Play junior hockey in Canada/another country for a year or 2


If you don't go to the NHL the team that drafted you tracks your progress and decides how long they want you where you are. After you finish your college/or junior hockey year they decide if they wanna keep you developing for a few more years or want to sign you to a minor league or NHL contract.

    that depends on where he gets drafted. if hes drafted to a canadian team or middle or nowhere team he wont. If he gets drafted into a big city like dallas/chicago/new york/ etc. they might try to do that for ticket sales etc.

    Props to him... for coming out looking more like his mom than his dad.. Though his pop's level of ugly could've helped on defense.

    I watched the US/Canada Junior game. It was good seeing Seth Jones on the US side to even things out cause I was starting to feel bad for Canada's black goalie Subban.
