The next is another of my favorite players I had hoped the @lakings would draft. I still remember some of the 2017 draft forecasts pegged Nick Suzuki as going 11th to the Kings, but he ended up going two spots later to the Vegas Knights. @nsuzuki_37 -
1. Nick is a Japanese Canadian from London, Ontario.
2. His younger brother, Ryan (@ryansuzuki6), is a @canes prospect, and they are distant relatives of the famed environmentalist, David Suzuki.
3. In their first junior game facing each other, they had a lot of family in attendance, and Nick playfully slashed Ryan on the shin as they skated to the bench; Nick was called for slashing on the play.
4. Praised for his hockey IQ and often compared to Patrick Kane, Nick had an exceptional @ohlofficial career capturing 14 awards and winning OHL MVP honors in leading his team, the @guelph_storm_ohl, to the 2019 Memorial Cup Finals.
5. After being traded from the @vegasgoldenknights to the @canadiensmtl, Nick has been a fixture in the Habs’ lineup and quickly becoming the star he was projected as being. Let’s hope he continues his trajectory to superstardom!
