Brahaney hoping to hear his name called on NHL draft day

It will be a different setting and the odds are that the business surrounding the National Hockey League Entry Draft will be much different, too, for Kingston Frontenacs general manager Darren Keily after he lands in Dallas on Thursday.

A year ago at the draft in Buffalo, the Frontenacs were left without a head coach when Paul McFarland signed on as an assistant coach with the Florida Panthers.

Keily and Doug Gilmour, Frontenacs president of hockey operations, were collecting resumes by the final day of the draft. Eventually, Jay Varady was hired as the new coach.

This time around, with the draft being held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas this Friday and Saturday, Keily is expecting more normality, to a point.

“Anything can happen around the draft,” Keily said.

As far as players being drafted, Keily said the Frontenacs “don’t have a whole lot.”

Defenceman Jakob Brahaney, who had a stellar second season with five goals, 30 points and a team-leading +25 in the plus/minus department, is considered to have the best shot at having his name called in what will be his second go-through in the draft.
