Kaprizov Headlines 2021 Rookie Draft

In Uncategorized on October 3, 2021 at 5:57 pm

The Adirondack Aces finally found the silver lining to their nightmare season, drafting dynamic winger Kirill Kaprizov with their first overall pick in the 2021 GWMHL Rookie Draft.

Otherwise, it was a relatively quiet day, with no real blockbuster trades, although the Delta Sturgeon flipped its 2022 first rounder for El Dorado’s first this year and grabbed goaltender Jake Oettinger with the pick.

Oettinger was one of four netminders to be picked in the first round, as Ice Harbor took Spencer Knight at 9th, Pittsburgh took Jeremy Swayman at 16th and Boston took Ilya Sorokin at 17th.

After Kaprizov, probably the consensus first overall, the draft saw Alexis Lafreniere go to Farmington at 2nd, Cole Caufield go to Hamilton at 3rd, and Tim Stutzle land in Parry Sound at 4th.
