Here’s a quick snippet from the WHL draft preview:

“forward Connor McClennon is coming off a dominant year with the Pursuit of Excellence Bantam Prep where he notched 99 points (45G-54A) in 30 games. The product of Wainwright, Alta., owns one of the best one-timers in the 2017 draft class while using speed and size to create space for himself and teammates.”

We also had a chance to sit down with Connor for a quick Q&A:

How exciting are you about the WHL draft Thursday May?

I have been looking forward to the WHL draft for a long time, so I am excited to see how it unfolds.

How long have you been training with PEP?

I have been training with PEP for the last 4 years.

How is it different from other trainings you have used over the years?

I like that it helps with my speed and agility on my edges. All the drills are constantly modified so that I am still allowed to be creative while working on all aspects of my game.

How has the PEP training helped you in Game Application?

The moves worked on in PEP can be transferred to a game and it allows you to anticipate and execute in different situations.
