Wherefore art Werek headed?

Kingston Frontenacs brass has bigger fish to fry than promoting its players, so it probably would not hurt to pass along with Ethan Werek-related linkage.
  • One of Coming Down The Pipe!'s mockups of the first round has the Chicago Blackhawks taking Werek in the first round, 28th overall.

  • Werek is No. 41 in TSN's final draft rankings.

  • Ryan Kennedy at The Hockey News sees Werek as a second-round steal:
    "A highly recruited scoring pivot who played Jr. A with 2008 second-rounder Corey Trivino, Werek’s Ontario League career got off to a spotty start, as did the entire Fronts’ organization this season. But once Doug Gilmour came to town as coach, Werek was unleashed and his stock is bouncing back."
Anyway, Fronts management can focus on stifling the local media and planning the going-away party they're holding in Kinger's honour. Let's hope they reconsider their decision to have it the day after he leaves town.
