Brett Connolly is a top prospect for the upcoming draft and someone TPS has been excited about even before he joined us in studio last year during the WHL awards/draft week. The Prince George Cougar forward also does some guest blogging for us, and you know we'll be checking in with him before the draft once again.
I had one scout tell me this year that if Connolly was healthy, he might have been able to sneak into the Hall/Seguin discussion and make a case for being a top 3 pick. It's my belief if he slips out of the top 5, whichever team snags him is getting a steal of a draft pick...if he stays healthy. Connolly had major hip problems this year, but in a conversation with Chris Botta recently proclaims his hip problems to be in the past. It's a good read, and definitely worth your time.
