Habs brass at Hounds game

March 30, 2016

A trio of Soo Greyhounds wingers rated for selection at the 2016 National Hockey League draft did not put their best feet forward in front of a gathering of scouts on Wednesday.

Montreal Canadiens senior vice president of hockey operations Rick Dudley was one of a row full of talent judges who took in the Greyhounds listless 5-2 loss to the Sarnia Sting in Game 3 of their Ontario Hockey League playoff series at the Essar Centre.

Among the players that Dudley et al were believed to be evaluating were three 1998 birth-year Greyhound forwards — Boris Katchouk, Jack Kopacka and Tim Gettinger.

None of the three stood out, though it might be fair to say that no Greyhound player had a particularly good outing in the 5-2 defeat.

The Hounds still lead the best-of-seven, Western Conference playoff series, albeit now by a 2-1 margin. Game 4 is set for Thursday at 7:07 p.m. at the Essar Centre.

What you think about “Habs brass at Hounds game”

  1. I thought that Frankie Pucci was the Hounds best Forward & he only got 5 – 6 shifts and he scored a Goal to boot. Play him more!!!????

  2. The habs are scouting Jakob Chychrun, that is who they are scouting, their priority is to focus on him as they will have a top 10 selection this year and Chychrun is ranked fairly high this year
