The Nashville Predators 2015 NHL Draft is done and dusted with their seventh round draft selection of goaltender Evan Smith.

What was I just saying about height and goaltenders in the Predators system? Tall? Oh, good. Because Smith is 6’6″ at the age of 18-years old. Last season he split between the Victoria Royals (WHL) and Austin Bruins (NAHL). The majority of his 2014-15 season was played in the NAHL as a member of the Bruins where he played 15 games in net while posting a 1.73 goals against average and 0.923 save percentage. He also contributed for the Bruins in the playoffs where he recorded a 2.10 GAA and 0.914SV% in 6 games.

The Predators 2015 NHL Draft Class: Iakov Trenin, Thomas Novak, Anthony Richard, Alexandre Carrier, Karel Vejmelka, Tyler Moy, and Evan Smith. (4 forwards, 2 goalies, 1 defenseman)

Thoughts on the Nashville Predators 2015 NHL Draft? How would you rate the prospects they just added to the pipeline and which are you most excited to potentially see play in Milwaukee?
