Greg Chase doesn’t care who calls his name.

He doesn’t even care when they get around to doing it.

The Calgary Hitmen winger just wants to hear his name called by an NHL team at some point during Sunday’s draft.

“Honestly, I’ve heard many different things,” Chase said when asked what he expects this weekend.

“But I guess you never really know until it actually happens. Hopefully, somebody says my name and I end up with a good organization.

“I’m sure anywhere would be a great place for me.”

Whether he’s selected by a bottom-feeder that might require his services earlier than usual or a contender, which could delay his big-league arrival, Chase said he’d be happy either way.

“I’d like to be in any situation. Anywhere in the NHL would be ideal for me.

“Not many people get drafted into the NHL. That’s something I want to achieve, and I guess it could happen this year.”
