Brule At #2?
Inside information from the Vancouver Giants’ front office say that, after Sidney Crosby is taken in the draft, it might not be any of the next three top players taken at #2. Not Jack Johnson, not Benoit Pouliot, not Bobby Ryan.No, Gilbert Brule may be taken at #2 by the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.
Scott Bonner, the GM of the Giants, has noticed that Brian Burke has been in his building a lot this season, and he has been saying since the lottery that his star might soon be a Duck.
Bonner thinks that Brule will compliment forwards like Joffrey Lupul and Petr Sykora well, if he is taken in the second position.
Brule stole the show at this year’s CHL Top Prospects game, netting a hat trick. He combined 39 goals and 48 assists in 70 games for 87 points for Vancouver. He is a small man at only 5’10 and 175 lbs, but competes like a big man, enjoying to hit as much as to score.
Will this man be chosen 2nd? Or will it be Johnson, Pouliot, Ryan, or someone else? We shall see.
