Junior player gets destroyed on Cale Makar’s highlight pack, becomes star of NHL Draft’s first round
Friday night during the NHL Draft, the player who arguably got the most attention online wasn’t one of the players drafted in the first round. It was for what one of the players drafted in the first round did to him.
With the fourth overall pick, the Colorado Avalanche selected Brooks Bandits’ defenseman Cale Makar out of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, arguably the best player in the draft.
As NBCSN aired a highlight package focusing on the defender’s slick puck control, Makar doled out counter hit and crushed a fellow AJHL player behind the net.
We learned that fellow player was actually Jack Thomas and he has feelings too.
