David Farrance, D, 2017 3rd-round draft pick

And here’s another prospect with high potential that has benefited from a quality collegiate career. David Farrance played for the highly-respected Boston University as a standout player, and is now expected to make his AHL debut with the Milwaukee Admirals this coming season.

If you ask me, Farrance’s time with the Adimrals might be short lived. I won’t be shocked in the slightest if he gets the call-up to the Predators after the first month or so of the regular season. Especially if the Predators are struggling in the standings and need a shake-up.

In the meantime, Farrance will get his feet wet in the AHL and should be one of Milwaukee’s top players. He looked good at the development camp with his puck handling and skating.

Farrance also already has made his NHL debut as he got into two games last season, and really didn’t look uncomfortable or out of place at all. Now with more playing time in the AHL, he’ll be ready sooner rather than later to be a regular NHL starter.

Expect Farrance to stand out in rookie camp and against the other teams’ prospects this weekend. He seems the most ready out of all of the prospect pool for the Predators to be an NHL starter right now. Well, him and one other highly-touted prospect, that is.
