BSH 2023 Community Draft Board, No. 5: Will Smith
Will Smith's stock is rising and rising with every passing day.
It is the wild, wild west when it comes to where Will Smith might land in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft.
The top-ranked American skater has seen his stock steadily rise from the early rankings last summer as more and more scouts got to view him leading the U.S. National Team Development Program with his skill, speed, and general offensive abilities. He has simply made people more aware of what he can do on the ice and it has led to him being one of the top prospects available in this increasingly deep draft.
Coming from Lexington, Mass. and playing his junior hockey with the Boston Jr. Eagles until committing to The Program two years ago, Smith is just another product of the northeast state that has found himself in the conversation for one of the top selections, following the likes of Matt Boldy and Matty Beniers.
