I’m happy to be getting this card back from Cole Fonstad who was drafted in the 5th round of the 2018 Entry Draft. While it’s generally accepted that the Montreal Canadiens whiffed on the 3rd selection (selecting Jesperi Kotkaniemi instead of expected Filip Zadina) based on scouting reports, Cole was expected to go anywhere between 45th to 88th overall.
He was finally selected at 128.
For this Prince Albert Raider, he’ll need to add a bit more muscle on to his 5’10 frame. Obviously, as each year passes, he’ll be able to gain weight. He made a huge jump from his rookie season almost doubling his goal total and increasing his production to a point a game player.
Would love to see where he ends up in a couple of years and having this blog as a way to document what we’re thinking at this very moment in time.
