Round 7, Pick 187: Kienan Draper, Forward, Chilliwack Chiefs (BCHL)/ Miami Ohio University (NCAA)

In what was originally the last pick of the draft, the Red Wings front office came together to select Kienan Draper, son of Kris Draper, who is a part of this front office. Draper is an eighteen-year-old, 6-foot-1, 181-pound right-winger. He has been playing for St. Andrews College of the CAHS league.

With St. Andrews, Draper played in 56 games, tallying 26 goals and 25 assists for 51 total points in 2019-20. However, in 2020-21, he is slated to play for the Chilliwack Chiefs of the BCHL, also being committed to the Miami University RedHawks for the 2021-22 season.

It is early to start speculations on Draper, but having time to develop, Draper could be someone who gets revisited in a few seasons as an incredible late-round snatch. At the very least, he will be (presumably) given a chance to try and make it with the club his dad works in the front office for and was a former player for.

Round 7, Pick 203 (Acquired from Blues): Chase Bradley, F, Omaha Lancers USHL, Northeastern University (NCAA)

To close out one heck of a day, the Red Wings selected centerman Chase Bradley of the Omaha Lancers in the USHL.

Bradley is playing for the Sioux City Musketeers this upcoming season while also being committed to playing his college hockey at Northeastern.

In 2019-20, Bradley played in 34 games with the Lancers, where he scored seven goals and added 12 assists for 19 total points. He will spend one last year in the USHL with the Sioux City Musketeers before heading to Northeastern.

Like Draper and Aucoin, he will have time to develop, and once he gets to the NCAA level, he will be able to develop and flourish even more. The high-potential of Bradley fits the build of this 2020 NHL draft class.
