2022 NHL Draft Podcasts

As the 2022 NHL Draft approaches, we’ll be releasing some free podcasts talking about some of the players that will be drafted on July 7th and 8th in Montreal. Today’s audio will help you understand the ratings we will include in the upcoming audio. We’ll include our grades for Hockey Sense, Compete, Skill, Skating and a Miscellaneous category as we make our way through each player in the podcast.

We’ll call the podcasts 5 in 5. We’ll talk about 5 prospects and try to keep the length to somewhere around 5 minutes per podcast. Don’t be shocked if we go long on a few.
