CALGARY -- According to Vancouver Giants forward Tyler Benson, the expectations have always been there.
But Benson, named to NHL Central Scouting's Futures List for North America and Europe in June, welcomes them as the potential first round pick awaits the 2016 NHL Draft next June.
"I don't think it makes it any easier," Benson told NHL.com at Canada's National Men's Summer Under-18 Team selection camp at WinSport's Markin MacPhail Centre at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary. "You have to perform this year. You have to go out there and try to be the best every day. If you're playing to the expectations, you're going to do well."
