GM Anholt Ready For WHL Bantam Draft

The Western Hockey League holds its 2015 Bantam Draft on Thursday, May 7 in Calgary.

The Lethbridge Hurricanes have the second-overall selection for a second straight year. The top prospects this year are a pair of defencemen. I took some time to speak on the phone with Hurricanes GM Peter Anholt while he was at the Alberta Cup in Camrose.

One thing he was adamant about, is the Canes will not be trading this second round pick.

The entire interview is below.

  1. Certainly sounds like Peter has a firm grip on what he wants to do at the draft. (top three rated draft picks are d-men).As he stated, "take the best player available in the first round and then add more depth in the later rounds". Interesting that he mentioned Jody Bellerive again making it sound like that door might be still open. One thing is puzzling though, there has been no announcement by the Hurricane BOD of Anholt coming to terms as their GM.
