The hockey world awaits the fates of both Tyler Seguin and Taylor Hall. Those awaiting word includes the players themselves.
Seguin, who was named the top prospect by the Canadian Hockey League this weekend, said he's met with both the Edmonton Oilers (who own the No. 1 pick in the upcoming draft) and the Boston Bruins (No. 2). Where Seguin ends up, however, is still a mystery to him.
"I have met with both those teams, the top two," Seguin told NHL.com. "They've not given me any scoop on what they want to do."
The Bruins don't really have a choice in the matter, as the power rests in the hands of the Oilers, who have not tipped their hat in either direction.
While Seguin was being named the top prospect, Hall was busy becoming the first player to be named MVP of the Memorial Cup two years in a row. Obviously, both players will become prizes for their respective teams, but both will want their names to be called first in Los Angeles on June 25.
"It is important to me (to be drafted first overall," Seguin told NHL.com. " I'm a hockey player. I'm a competitive guy. I want to go No. 1."
Unlike many drafts, we all may not find out until the pick is announced.
