His draft stock really has fallen off a cliff but perhaps the Devils would have interest in him in the later rounds. As you said he is a local kid, plus he is a right handed shooting defenseman, and is 6'1 185 lbs turning 18 next month.
With Nick Ebert taking a huge fall since last season, projected anywhere in between 3rd and 5th rounds, do we take a chance at him late? He is a Jersey kid and was highly touted last season. I think it would be a boom/bust pick like Merrill and Gelinas just slightly later and if he does pan out, we could have a studded blue line for years to come.
Wedgewood seems to embrace the pressure, whether its OHL play or international play. He's by far my favorite out of the Devils goaltending prospects. The series he is in now is going to be a helluva goaltending duel too, another solid test for him.
Man, Wedgewood really cranks it up once playoffs hit, eh?
