Hockey Bloodlines in the Draft

From Larry Wigge at NHL.com,

Hockey bloodlines, you see, are notoriously accurate in predicting which players you might take a harder look at in the annual draft. This year is no different. For instance:

* Alex Pietrangelo will be the first player picked in this draft who has ties to the game. His dad’s second cousin is Frank Pietrangelo, who was a goaltender in the NHL for many years with Pittsburgh and Hartford.

* Colin Wilson is the son of former NHL center Carey Wilson.

* Philip McRae is the son of former NHL winger Basil McRae.

and the list goes on…
