And Alexis Lafreniere goes to the New York Rangers

The NHL Draft Lottery, phase two lived up to the excitement. As the balls went into the machine and came up…

New York Rangers

Alexis Lafreniere will be a Star

Alexis Lafreniere was born on October 11, 2001 in the town of Saint-Eustache, Canada. At an early age, he seemed to excel and looked destined to be a top draft pick in the NHL. The kid has all the makings to be an elite player in the league and has been under the microscope for years.

The term “generational talent” is sometimes overused when talking about potential first round picks but Lafreniere has a chance to be exactly that. Is he the next Sidney Crosby or Connor McDavid, who knows. 

It also isn’t fair, but so far his skill sets, hockey IQ and vision make it him better than everyone else in this upcoming draft. One thing is for sure, he is NHL ready, and should be playing him immediately.
