Sam Bennett of the Kingston Frontenacs topped NHL Central Scouting’s midterm rankings and ended up No. 1 in its final rankings of the top North American and European skaters and goalies.
He joined Brian Duff and Andrew Peters for a segment Wednesday morning on Sabres Hockey Hotline and feels like he could help an NHL team right away in the fall.
“I do feel like I’m ready, but I’m just going to work my hardest this summer and when it comes to camp, I’m going to give it everything I’ve got,” the 17-year-old center said. “Whether the team is ready to take me next year or not, I’m still going to just keep trying to get better, keep trying to get stronger and do everything I can to make that team.”
