A hockey player from Northern Manitoba is hoping to hear his name called this June at the NHL entry draft.
Connor Dewar, from The Pas, was passed over by all 31 teams at last years’ draft when he was first eligible. After being passed over, Dewar participated in the 2017 summer development camp for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The 18-year-old is currently in his third season with the WHL’s Everett Silvertips, and is one of three players from the team expected to be drafted with the top 100 picks.
The former Parkland Ranger Midget AAA forward scored 38 goals during the regular season this year, the youngest player in Silvertips history to do so.
The draft is taking place from June 22nd through the 23rd in Dallas.
