Hitmen goalie gets wakeup call when Senators draft him

PITTSBURGH – Chris Driedger was sound asleep at home in Winnipeg on Saturday morning when his phone rang. It was a call he didn’t expect so early, if at all.
“My agent called,” he told the Calgary Herald. “And then my phone starting blowing up 30 seconds later.”
The Ottawa Senators had just selected him in the third round (76th overall) to make him the first and only WHL goaltender claimed in 2012
“I wasn’t expecting to go that early on,” he said.
“I was going to get up in about an hour, and I was just going to watch it from there.
“Turned out I should have been watching it earlier.
“You’re never sure.
“I was expecting to maybe be a fifth-, sixth- or even seventh-round pick if I were to go at all.
“Honestly, you just have no idea what the scouts are thinking. Clearly, third I wasn’t expecting that at all.”
