Awesome THN article about the guy we drafted in the first round last year.
We all went, "Who the hell is Joey Hishon?" after his name was called including me, but after seeing this kids drive and attitude, he's going to be an Avalanche player sooner or later. He needs to add a few pounds and work on his two-way game a bit more but this kid is already good friends with some of the guys on the team and is absolutely lighting it up in the OHL.
Avs scouts get a high-five!
"Hishon admits to feeling slightly overwhelmed when he heard his name called at the 2010 draft. So much so that his parents had to tell him to stand up and take the walk down to put on his new sweater. But he now has a clear and confident view as to what it will take to accomplish his ultimate goal."
