We all agree that Daniel Bukuc is a wait and see for IceDogs fans!

However, in fairness to him being released by Brandon – as an import - Bukac (NHL 7th Rd) was swapped out for elite NHL prospect D - Erik Brannstrom (NHL 1st Rd and 15th overall).

Brandon Wheat Kings drafted him 44th overall in the Import draft – and this was clearly a situation of a pre-arranged deal between Brannstrom agent, Vegas and the Wheat Kings.

FYI. The Brandon Wheat Kings are owned by Golden Knights assistant general manager Kelly McCrimmon. Obviously, the Wheat Kings took Brannstrom for a reason and odds are a conversation with McCrimmon occurred before the selection.

Also, scouting reports on Bukac – highlight several strengths and weakness in his game, but more importantly he continues to improve – so hopefully playing top pairing minutes this year will result in a breakthrough year.


Based on the two available scouting reports, they seem to agree on the following:

Strengths: Size (6'5 / 200lbs), excellent skater – length, smooth transition footwork and edgework, puck-handling above average, plays more confidently when playing top 4 minutes, benefits from his long reach and active stick, significant upside with his size and physical tools, capable of laying some good quality breakout passes.

Weakness: Decision making inconsistent from game to game, not very creative handling the puck, some indecisiveness without the puck - when to be aggressive and pinch offensively, some mental blunders in his own end, tighten up his defensive positioning, becomes his own worst enemy by trying to over handle himself out of traffic.

Differing opinion on his physical play – we’ll soon see which scouting report was accurate. One writes, “plays physically” and the other wrote, “not the best at utilizing his size as he lacks strength and the demeanour to use grit.”

Don’t worry FF

I always assume the worst when it comes to icedogs import selections ... That way if they actually look like they can at least play at a Jr A level I can be pleasantly surprised lmfao

I’m still haunted by the Kopta and Sysla selections ... I doubt they could have played Jr B ... or that goalie Petteri Simila lol. What were the Habs thinking with THAT pick lol

Verbally Committed. But those are his intentions at this time but things can change.

I think at worst he is "good enough" to play at the OHL level. If things don't work out, he can be part of a trade package to a team that does not have 2 imports. There always seems to be a market for NHL picks. But at this point I think the plan is to keep him and hope his development continues.
