SJHN Daily: NHL Vet Calls Celebrini ‘True Pro’, Who Did Pronman Mock for Sharks at No. 14?



Macklin Celebrini wasn’t at the World Championships for long, but he made a real impression on his Team Canada teammates.

“Away from the rink, he’s a true professional already,” St. Louis Blues defenseman Colton Parayko told Aaron Vickers of “It’s crazy. It’s really cool to see from a guy that was playing in university this year. I can’t say enough good things off the ice. On the ice, he’s obviously a great player. We can all watch how good he is.”

The future San Jose Sharks’ No. 1 pick was with Canada before last week, practicing with the national team in Vienna and Budapest, and getting into one exhibition game. But the 17-year-old was dropped from the squad after they added some veteran stars who had just been eliminated from the NHL playoffs.

Connor Bedard, Owen Power, and Jack McBain also shared their thoughts with Vickers about Celebrini.
