With the NHL draft coming up this weekend, there are two Halifax Mooseheads players who hope that they will hear their name called in Buffalo, NY so I thought I would ask you will they get drafted. Forwards Maxime Fortier and Otto Somppi probably won’t be heading south since they both are anticipated to be drafted in the later rounds of the entry draft if at all. 18 year old Fortier was eligible to be picked last year but he was skipped over, his play this past year should have helped his stock. 17 year old Somppi was in the top 10 of rookie scorers for the 2015-16 season which led to an invite to the draft combine a few weeks ago. Below you will find each player’s rankings from various hockey related personnel.
