Zach Fucale and Drafting A Goaltender in the First Round

Zach Fucale isn’t the Halifax Mooseheads’ star player.

But really, no one else is, either. It’s not because Fucale isn’t good enough to be the star; it’s more about Fucale being one of three elite players on Halifax’s roster. And one who’ll probably be gone by the time the first round of the NHL draft concludes.

London Knights’ Nikita Zadorov Defies European Stereotype

Nikita Zadorov isn’t who London Knights fans imagined when hearing their team had drafted a Russian defenseman in the first round of the 2012 CHL Import Draft.

A silky-smooth, offensive-minded, 5-foot-10 blueliner was pictured by many. Instead, Knights supporters found themselves looking at a 6-foot-5, 230-pound mammoth.
