BCHLers on big-league radar

Eight BCHL skaters are on the National Hockey League's 2012 entry draft watch list.

The 2012 National Hockey League Draft Watch List released last week includes eight current BCHLers and one league alumnus skating in the NCAA ranks.

Twenty-three junior A players were listed, though none of the players earned the A-type prospect status that indicates the potential to be a high-round draft pick.

B-type players are viewed as potential mid-round selections.

That list includes Coquitlam Express forward Alex Kerfoot, Prince George Spruce Kings forward Jujhar Khaira, Surrey Eagles forwards Sean McGovern and Brandon Morley, Eagles defenceman Devon Toews, Merritt Centennials defenceman Reece Willcox and Salmon Arm SilverBacks forward Morgan Zulinick.

Powell River Kings forward Evan Richardson was listed as a C-type skater, indicative of a potential late-round pick.

Former Coquitlam Express standout Destry Straight, now playing for the Boston College Eagles, was also listed as a B-type skater.

The 2012 NHL Entry Draft will be held June 22-23 at the Consol Energy Centre in Pittsburgh.
