Another vote for Perfetti via Pronman’s latest mock draft

The Athletic’s Corey Pronman posted his latest mock draft this morning, and he’s named a familiar name as the Wings’ most likely pick at 4th overall:

4. Detroit Red Wings: Cole Perfetti, C, Saginaw-OHL

The draft starts to get interesting and more wide-open starting with Detroit’s pick. I’ve heard Lucas Raymond mentioned with the Red Wings, but a fair amount of sources seem to think the team likes Cole Perfetti a lot. His elite skill and hockey IQ with average feet and size has a lot of resemblance to Brayden Point, who Detroit GM Steve Yzerman picked during his tenure in Tampa Bay.

Continued (paywall); the more and more mock drafts I read, the more and more likely it appears that the Wings are going to bring Perfetti into the fold.
