NHL Central Scouting ???

In a bit of a surprise, Central Scouting’s 59th ranked player, forward, Ty Lewis from Brandon was not drafted.  

Overage forward, Colt Conrad from St. Alphonse was not drafted although he was ranked 194th by Central Scouting.  He had a pretty decent season with Western Michigan University.  

All in all a pretty decent day for Manitoba this past weekend in Chicago.
