The intrigue of the 2013 NHL draft need not end for any interested observers once Seth Jones, Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin learn where they are going. There is a decent chance that one of MacKinnon and Drouin’s fellow key cogs on the Memorial Cup champion Halifax Mooseheads can join them as a first-round pick.
If Zach Fucale goes that early as the first goaltender selected, or even if he does not but still blossoms into a top-notch performer, he will embolden the 2012-13 Mooseheads legacy. He may also retroactively stress his importance to an offensively spoiled team for those who overlooked him at the time.
Beyond that, there is ample opportunity for virtually any other prospect to defy his picking position en route to a steady NHL career, as many have done in this particular position.
