NHL's top prospect says he is overcoming 2 hernia injuries

"I've meet some new guys here and it's fun hanging out with a good group of hockey guys so it has been fun", said NHL Prospect Nolan Patrick. "I just tried to focus on my game and this is the first time I've really said anything about it".

"It's been exciting you know I'm not in any rush to get to the draft or anything like that". "I don't think I was the only one in that room [holding a bucket]".

Patrick can look at the bright side because the time he missed didn't alter the NHL Central Scouting Department's final rankings in April.

"It is tough when you're about to do [pull-ups] and see Nico atop the leaderboard", he said. But I'm not competing against him. "I'm just going to be happy". "We're just happy to be ranked where we are and excited to move forward".

This is great news for the Devils, as they hold the No. 1 overall selection in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

Passengers affected by British Airways IT problems eligible for compensation
BA had to cancel a total of eight flights from Dublin to Heathrow between Saturday, Sunday and Monday as a result. Passengers traveling with British Airways faced lengthy delays over the long weekend due to global IT problems.

"I guess that's good for us and not as much pressure, " Patrick said, with a smile. "For now it's waiting and seeing what happens come draft day". I didn't talk about it during the year in the media that I was misdiagnosed. "So if a team likes me and takes me, I'd be honored to go anywhere". The 6-foot-2 Patrick finished with 20 goals and 46 points to up his junior career total to 91 goals and 204 points in 160 games.

Without going into detail, Patrick said he elected to not have a second operation and instead had it heal "in a different way".

"Hischier is definitely worth the price of admission, " Marr said. "It helps to motivate you for sure, though".

Will it matter? Patrick has been cleared for full activity at the Combine this weekend, and here he is this morning on the Wingate bike test. He recovered well enough from the surgery he did have to be in Brandon's lineup for the first five games of the season but didn't play again until January 13. And after a good summer of training I think I'll get there, " Patrick said. He's tested himself at the last two world junior championships, including a four-goal, seven-point showing in five games this year. "It was a long run".

While the NHL's current stars are on display down in Nashville getting ready for game 3 of the Stanley Cup final the future of the league is here in Buffalo.
