A trio of Saskatoon Blades found out on Monday’s bus ride to Red Deer what N-H-L Central Scouting thinks of them.
Centre Kirby Dach, defenceman Emil Malysjev and goaltender Nolan Maier each received a different letter grade from C-S-B in their initial “Players to Watch” rankings in advance of the 2019 N-H-L Draft. Dach is an “A” player…likely to be selected in the first round next June…Malysjev is a “B” player…expected to be taken in the second or third round…while Maier is a “C” player…probably picked in the fourth through seventh rounds. The 3-1-0 Bridge City Bunch meets the 3-2-0 Rebels to start four games in five nights in the Central Division Tuesday night. The broadcast on 98-COOL starts at 6 p.m. with the Sardinia Restaurant pre-game show and the play-by-play at 7.
