Rakell was to the point when speaking about his attraction to the Canadian Hockey League.
“I think it’s the best junior league in the world,” he said. “And my goal is to reach the National Hockey League.”
Trutmann expressed the same sentiments about the Canadian Hockey League.
“It’s the best junior league in the world,” Trutmann said in a phone interview. “It’s a dream come true to play in it. I pattern myself after Mark Streit, a Swiss who plays for the New York Islanders.”
