from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
The Wings hold the sixth overall pick in the June 21-22 event in Vancouver, British Columbia. I wrote about the benefit of drafting Cole Caufield at the NHL combine, and in the first mock draft, the Wings selected center Dylan Cozens.
In this edition, I have the Wings selecting center Trevor Zegras, a product of the U.S. National Team Development Program based out of Plymouth. He came in at sixth on the NHL Central Scouting final draft prospect rankings.
Zegras is 6-feet, 173 pounds and shoots left. He posted 26 goals and 61 assists in 60 games with the U18 team last season. Zegras draws comparisons to Chicago’s Patrick Kane, and models his game after Arizona’s Clayton Keller (Zegras has 100 career assists in 116 games split between the U18 and U17 NTDP teams; Keller had 118 in his NTDP career).
