We are thrilled to be joined for the first time (of hopefully many) by Detroit Red Wings legend and Director of Amateur Scouting, Kris Draper!
Tune in as Kris talks to us about the ins and outs of scouting for the NHL Draft, his thoughts on Marco Kasper, Amadeus Lombardi, & more Red Wings prospects, what it was like to scout & draft Moritz Seider & Lucas Raymond, and more! He also discusses his thoughts on the Detroit Red Wings rebuilding, working with Steve Yzerman, Copp, Chiarot, & the free agent class, & expectations for the team next season. Of course, we also discuss his legendary time with the Red Wings (starting with a $1 purchase), playing with Yzerman, Lidstrom, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, & others, his feud with Claude Lemieux & the Colorado Avalanche, & so much more. You're going to love this interview. (1:33)
We also take some time to discuss Detroit's recent depth signing of Robert Hagg (and Mark Pysyk's injury), & lots more! (57:00)
