DPR – Episode 22: Central European Draft Prospects with Dennis Schellenberg

Paul Zwambag


Special Episode:

In this bonus episode we head to Switzerland to get some first hand scouting reports and accounts from McKeens Central European Scout, Dennis Schellenberg.

Dennis gives us his opinion on top Czech Republic, Slovakian and Swiss NHL Draft prospects such as Martin Necas, Filip Chytil, Ostap Safin, Radim Salda, Jakub Galvas, Patrik Hrehorcak and Tobias Geisser. He talks about how close they are to the NHL and what kind of impact they may have in the NHL and on your fantasy roster.

We also ask him how Switzerland is reacting to Swiss born, Nico Hischier, climbing the draft ranks and being first or second in everyone's draft rankings.


Dennis is a Swiss Scout for the Future Considerations and also provides content for McKeen's Hockey Draft Guide, you can follow Dennis on Twitter: @ScoutingFactory
