Jack Williams said being on National Hockey League Central Scouting’s preliminary players to watch list for the 2020 NHL Draft was “crazy and surreal.”
The 17-year-old forward didn’t stop there.
“It’s a dream of mine to play in the NHL, and seeing my name on an NHL list is ridiculous to me,” added Williams, who earned a C rating on the aforementioned list, indicating that he’s a candidate to be selected in the fourth, fifth or sixth round. “I’m just a kid playing hockey.”
While that’s true, the Biddeford, Maine, native isn’t an ordinary hockey player.
