Mock drafts & more

According to three mock drafts released this week, BU just may have two first-round NHL draft choices for the first time. Red Line Report editor Kyle Woodlief’s mock draft for USA Today projects Colin Wilson going 9th overall all to Nashville and Corey Trivino 25th to Montreal. ESPN’s mock draft has the same destinations for the two centers, while The Hockey News has Wilson picked 8th by Phoenix and Trivino 30th by Stanley Cup Champion Detroit.

In the aftermath of his showing at the combine, Wilson continues to be a hot commodity among scouts and in the media, with articles appearing in The New England Hockey Journal, The Boston Herald and Hockeysfuture.com. Colin authored his third predraft blog entry for NHL.com, and in TSN’s top 60 draft prospects, Wilson was ranked 8th and Trivino 36th.

USA Hockey has announced the 53-man roster for U.S. Junior National Team camp set for Lake Placid in August. Wilson, Kevin Shattenkirk, Colby Cohen and incoming freshmen David Warsofsky and Vinny Saponari received invites. Wilson led the 2008 U.S. Jr. National Team in goals scored with six.
