This would be a nice pick for the Dogs IMO.

#2. Jean-Luc Foudy - F (Toronto Titans)
Argubly the best skating in this draft class, Jean-Luc Foudy looks certain to follow his brother Liam's footsteps as a first round draft pick. In terms of an individual player being essential to a teams success, nobody was more important this season in the GTHL than Foudy was to the the Toronto Titans. Playing on a team was limited forward talent, he single handedly carried the offensive charge on a number of occasions, where he willed his team to wins. With the speed and puck skills that Foudy has, we are talking about someone who would have been a top scorer in the league, if he had a little bit more polish finishing scoring chances and if he had more talented forwards to work with. Despite teams being overly physical and had defensive structures in place to defend Foudy on the rush, his skating ability was simply too good at times where he became undefendable and he was still one of the best players in terms of scoring chances created in the GTHL. Foudy will likely find himself just outside the top 10, but make no mistake this is a top 10 talent.

Sounds like he could be available at 12. If he wants to follow his brothers path and go to London. Make them pay, take the comp pick as well and the pieces for the next rebuild will be in place after next years run. If he does report.... the more speed the better.

Lol, “make them pay” how did that work last time for the ID’s fishfan51? You are kinda slipping in my mind fishfan51 as being the knowledgeable one on this site. I am all too familiar regarding that families “finishing polish” lol. You may have to find other ways of making the mighty LK pay as they will no doubt be looking for a scoring defencemen to groom to play in the NHL as a 19 year old.

1) I don't remember the Dogs drafting anyone London wanted other than a certain Swedish import. And with the OHL trading rules, London was never going to get him no matter the price. So care to elaborate on the "last time"?

2) I have no idea, a) if Foudy will be available b) if London wants him c) if he will or won't report. Just a plan that takes care of all angles if they can get him.

3) I won't lose any sleep over your opinion on my knowledge.

ff51, I like that pick (JL Foudy) for all the same reasons (including the London angle).

He is a tremendous skater – fast, handles the puck well and has Tomasino type vision. His areas of deficiency are all coachable and part of his developmental curve. Foudy’s positional play is weak both on defense and offense. He does not look to pick up his man but rather skates to where ever the puck is – and is extremely week in the face-off circle.

The 2 players who I think would be a perfect fit for the Ice Dogs are Will Cuylle (who won’t available) and Dylan Robinson (who might have been available at 12, but a strong OHL Cup tournament probably rules that out now).

If it is not Robinson, Cameron Peters (6’1”, 180 lbs) would be a nice safe pick – or swing for Antonio Stranges!

IceDogs primed for OHL draft
By Bill Potrecz - April 2, 2018

http://www.bpsportsniagara.ca/icedog...for-ohl-draft/

Burke feels the organization is more than ready for the draft which sees Niagara select 12th in the first round.

Burke added. “We have our main plans, our back up plans, our lists. We’re going to be meeting all week on it. “I’m ready. I wish the draft was tomorrow because we’re ready to go.”

Burke says the IceDogs have several plans in place for the first round. “We have all agreed on what our main plan is. We’ve got a list of five to 10 guys we are extremely comfortable with. We have them ranked and we know who is going to be there for us.”

We have now created a program where anyone will come,” he said. “It’s 99.9 per cent we’re taking a guy who wants to be here and will report and be here in September.”

Dreaming of the draft
By Bill Potrecz - April 3, 2018

http://www.bpsportsniagara.ca/dreaming-of-the-draft/

Spencer Smith is a few days away from realizing a dream that has been years in the making. He is the top ranked local player for the Ontario Hockey League draft Saturday, with some predicting he could be selected as high as the second round.
