With the Season 60 VHL draft coming up in just a few days Yukon Rush phenom defenseman Billy Pilgrim is hard at work. Billy has had a stellar season and is projected near the top of the pack but there is still work to be done.
”I’ve had teams contact me for interviews. I did not expect that. I am not the smartest guy ever and I sometimes have trouble coming up with words.” Pilgrim says. What Pilgrim lacks in mental capacity he makes up for with his hockey instincts and size. He looms over opponents and is a physical presence who seems to always be in the right spot at the right time. Billy has been training with Rob Blake and Chris Pronger working on his defensive skills and feels he has made great strides. “Rob and Chris are 2 of the best ever, they have made me much much better.”
Regardless of what happens at the draft Pilgrim is ready for whatever comes next. “I don’t care too much where I play.” he says. “As long as I’m playing hockey I’m happy.” Nothing is guaranteed but I would bet that Billy is going to be happy for a long, long time.
