FC releases preliminary list for 2011 NHL Entry Draft

Dan Stewart2013 Draft Center2 Comments

With the QMJHL season already underway and the rest of the hockey world ready to follow suit, the Taylor vs. Tyler debate of yesteryear has been put on the back burner as their careers continue to play out.

Hall and Seguin can now give way this year’s three-way dance involving Dummondville’s Sean Couturier, Swede Adam Larsson and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins of the Red Deer Rebels.

Which will be called to the stage first on draft day? Can someone outside of the ‘big three’ make noise at the top of the list?

Ladies and gentlemen, let the games begin!
