Patrick goes No. 1 in TSN's post-season mock draft

Nolan Patrick is on pace to make history " twice.

TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button projects the Brandon Wheat Kings centre going first overall to the last place Colorado Avalanche " provided it wins the draft lottery scheduled to take place April 29 " in the TSN post-season mock draft.

If Patrick goes No. 1 over rival centre Nico Hischier of the Halifax Mooseheads, he would be the first Manitoban chosen No. 1 and the first major junior player to go first overall despite missing more games (39) than playing (33) in his draft year.

Patrick was sidelined by sports hernia surgery and an upper body injury this season.

But its what Patrick did in the games he played " scoring 20 goals and 46 points " that solidified his position as the No. 1 pick. This on the heels of a phenomenal 102-point season with Brandon in 2015-16 as a 17-year-old.

Performance and pedigree lay to rest any concerns Button has about Patricks ability to stay healthy.
Scouts evaluate a players skill, attributes and potential, Button says. Medical staff will evaluate what injury risk is or isnt on a going forward basis. There is no better player in the draft than Patrick.
The standard for fewest games played by a No. 1 pick from major junior hockey was set by Billings Bighorns defenceman Gord Kluzak, who played just 38 games in 1981-82 before Boston picked him first overall.
