While there is currently very little action in the National Hockey League, it's the perfect time to watch and re-watch the entertaining content shared by the league.
Notably, one of the summer's featured videos is this one:
A short documentary called Welcome to the NHL | NHL Draft 2022
and we highly recommend it.
It really takes us behind the scenes of the 2022 NHL Draft, which was held in Montreal, and it's really interesting. We get to know the players better (like Juraj Slafkovsky
) and see new reactions, live.
As part of this episode, there's this segment that was just isolated and is currently making the rounds on the web:
Here we see that young Shane Wright
really went through several emotions, as he was ignored by the first three teams to advance to the podium. (when he was the favorite to be drafted first)
In this clip (between the second and third picks overall), we see a Shane Wright
completely convinced that he would be drafted by the Arizona Coyotes at third, after having been ignored by the CH and the Devils.
Finally, he hears the Coyotes GM call out Logan Cooley
's name, and his reaction says it all:
A tough night for the kid, and you can very clearly see his disappointment in the above clip, but then it all gives way to the joy of finally being selected (4th) by the Seattle Kraken.
As he often says in the documentary, Shane Wright
has an extra motivation and he is satisfied because in the end it's not "when" but "where".
It will be interesting to watch him evolve.See Wright's video HERE
