Walcott’s road to the NHL Draft was an interesting one. Playing in high school, and passed over in QMJHL drafts, the defender found himself playing for Lindenwood University. Unfortunately, the level of competition of ACHA hockey (below NCAA) was not appealing to Walcott. Fortunately, he was invited to Blainsville-Boisbriand’s training camp, where he made the team as a 19 year old.
Making the team out of camp, Walcott has displayed great skating ability as well as good poise. Overall, he has been very effective, both offensively and defensively.
