Leafs prospect David Broll knows all about the stresses and joys of the NHL Entry Draft. He was drafted fairly recently - 152nd overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft - and he has already gone from a late round draft pick, to a regular American League player with a few NHL games under his belt.

I spoke to "The Brolldozer" on the eve of this year's edition of the NHL Entry Draft to ask about his experience, what has happened since, and what advice he has for this year's crop.
