BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — As we countdown to the NHL Draft on June 23rd in Chicago, our first News 4 Premier Prospect is center Nolan Patrick, the projected first overall pick to New Jersey, who will decide between Patrick and Nico Hischier.
Here’s the lowdown on Patrick:
6’3, 200 lbs
Brandon Wheat Kings
2015-16: 102 points in 72 games (Brandon).
2016-17: 46 points in 33 games (Brandon).
In One Sentence:
The son of former Buffalo Sabre Steve Patrick and nephew of former Sabres player and coach James Patrick, Nolan is a big scoring threat with keen vision on the ice who may garner questions over recent sports hernia injuries… but is no doubt the most NHL-ready prospect in this class.
