The Matt Gilroy sweeps can’t officially begin until the probable Hobey Baker winner plays out his final four next weekend, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of rumours surrounding the puck moving D-man. This kid was a recent guest on the Hockeybuzzcast Podcast and is such a great kid, who has worked his way to this great position he finds himself in.
Note: Although Eklund did get this one right (after naming 7 teams total), he went on to predict that he would sign on April 12th in his April 11th blog, but Gilroy instead signed on April 17th:
He plays his final game in college tonight. Matt Gilroy, Hobey Baker Winner and solid puck moving D-man is likely going to be signed tomorrow by either the Philadelphia Flyers or the Chicago Blackhawks. I was told this past week that the Flyers may be Gilroy’s first choice.
There are five teams involved as of now according to my sources: Toronto (e4), Vancouver (e3), NJ (e3), Nashville (e4), NY Rangers (e3) [link]
