Landon Ferraro was a goal scoring machine for the Red Deer Rebels during the 2008-09 season which prompted the Detroit Red Wings to take him with their first choice in the 2009 NHL Draft. Since then, he has struggled.
from Ray Ferraro at TSN,
We met in the morning to walk over to the arena, Landon wearing a different suit and hoping for a quick selection.
Sometimes you look back at an event and realize its significance only in retrospect. With the 29th pick Friday night, Detroit traded down three spots to No. 32. They acquired a 3rd round pick to move down, and 10 minutes after getting into the arena Saturday morning, we heard words I had dreamt about many times watching my son chase his dream.
Ken Holland was at the microphone and said “with the 32nd pick, the Detroit Red Wings select, from the Western Hockey League’s Red Deer Rebels - Landon Ferraro.”
When I write those words, I still have tears in my eyes.
The son of Ray.
