KERFOOT & STRAIGHT LISTED AS DRAFT PROSPECTS
NHL Central Scouting released its list today for players to watch for the upcoming NHL draft in Pittsburgh.
Express rookie forward Alex Kerfoot and alumni Destry Straight were among the 8 BCHL players present and past listed as "B" ranked prospects or possible middle round selections for the draft.
This is the second consecutive year that Destry Straight was listed. Last season he was ranked as a "A" prospect or a high ranking prospect. But when the draft came around he wasn't selected. This season Straight has 1 goal and 1 assist in 17 games in his first season at Boston College.
For Kerfoot, he really made a name for himself with lots of scouts in attendance while at the World Junior A Challenge in Langley. He was named to the tournament all star game with a strong finish while helping Canada West win the gold medal. This season Kerfoot has 7 goals and 27 points in 25 games with the Express.
