It was a big day for Glenn Gawdin on Saturday when one of the top organizations in the NHL called his name at the league’s annual draft. St. Louis picked Gawdin in the 4th round of the draft and you can scroll down for his timeline with the organization.
I had a chance to chat with him on Monday after he had a couple of days take in the excitement of living a dream.
Gawdin really compares well to guys like Cody Eakin and Adam Lowry who were drafted in a similar spot and went on to already become NHL regulars. This is the start of the NHL journey not the end. Now he can head to St. Louis’ development camp and prepare for a season in which a lot of responsibility will be placed on him Swift Current. I bet he’ll be up to it.
