2010 Draft Prospect Cam Fowler

While much of the focus of the 2010 draft has been spent on Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin, whichever team draws the 3rd spot is going to get a terrific defenceman. That player joined Guy and myself Tuesday night.

We started our conversation with Cam Fowler asking him if he had done any gloating in the Windsor dressing room after winning gold at the World Junior Championship with Team USA. Wisely he hadn't as 4 of his Spitfire teammates were on the losing squad in the gold medal game and as smooth as Fowler is on the ice, I don't think he could escape all 4 of them.

Fowler told us who stepped up in the dressing room after Canada had tied things up and forced overtime, carrying the momentum into overtime.
"Some of the more vocal guys were some of the guys who played in the tournament last year. Guys like Danny Kristo and Jordan Schroeder and also the one who ended up getting the game winner for us John Carlson was a huge leader for us."
Fowler described the type of defenceman he is, why he ended up in Windsor instead of going to Notre Dame of the NCAA or Kitchener when the Rangers drafted him in 2007, and how he'd love to be an Oiler if they drafted him.

We also asked him to describe the difference between Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin seeing as how he's played against both of them.
