Beau Akey had a great start to his season with the Barrie Colts, but a quiet second half. Could he be a buy-low candidate in the second round for the San Jose Sharks? Brock Otten of McKeen’s Hockey joins to profile the right-handed defender. We chat about what makes him such an intriguing blueliner and how the return of LA Kings’ prospect, Brandt Clarke, to the Colts impacted the Akey’s season. Next, we analyze how he needs to continue to get more reps and build confidence in his game going forward and what his best NHL comparison is (11:00). Finally, Brock weighs in on the Will Smith, Matvei Michkov, and Leo Carlsson debate for the San Jose Sharks and why he would choose Smith (20:00).
