So I could have had the 1st overall pick. Damn Predators for actually being in the race near the deadline.

2014 Mock Draft (#1-14)

1. New York Rangers – D Aaron Ekblad

With the first two picks of the draft in hand, the order in which the Rangers select their prospects doesn’t really matter, but it would not be a surprise to hear the name ‘Aaron Ekblad’ called out as the #1 overall selection. While teams are always looking for that elusive #1 centre in every draft, the value of a franchise defenceman can not be underestimated and Ekblad will surely find his way to that status in the near future. Compared very favorably to another fantastic young defenceman Alex Pietrangelo, this ‘exceptional’ 6’5, 209 lb-defenceman is solid at both ends of the rink, mobile, and moves the puck extremely well.

2. New York Rangers (via Islanders) – C/RW Sam Reinhart

A no-brainer choice for the Rags on the 2nd overall selection. Sam Reinhart is a fantastic natural goal-scorer who can pull fans, coaches, and teammates off their seats with highlight reel moves. Reinhart’s stickhandling and puck control is among the tops in this year’s draft and the fact that he always keeps his feet moving makes him an remarkably dangerous player in he offensive zone.

3. Dallas Stars – D Aaron Irving

The Stars are loaded with talent up front with players like Baertschi, Kuznetsov, M. Reinhart, Ferraro, and Niedderreiter, so it would probably be in their best interest to take a defenceman to boost their blueline depth. Irving put up a PPG+ performance with Regina before being traded to Seattle, where he appeared to have a bit of a problem adjusting. However, his defensive prowess is as strong as ever and is a fantastic open-ice hitter. Irving typically makes a good first pass and has a booming shot, but scouts are still wary about his offensive upside in the NHL.

4. Vancouver Canucks – RW/C Reid Gardiner

The incredibly stacked Canucks team imploded this year despite possessing some of the best players in the world: Evgeni Malkin, Sedin twins, Erik Staal, and Bobby Ryan. Their prospect pool is one of the most shallow in the league, but adding one of the purest goal-scorers in the draft in Reid Gardiner would go a long way to revitalizing the franchise. Gardiner topped the 2014 draft with 73 goals this year and it comes as no surprise that he possesses a laser wrist shot and a cannon of a slapper. He is lethal on the powerplay as a finisher, but don’t be surprised to see him thread passes to his teammates for tap-ins because of his incredible vision.

5. St. Louis Blues – C/LW Galim Efimov

The Blues have filled their prospect cupboard nicely over the past few seasons and as a result aren’t lacking in too many areas. Thus, they may take a chance on the diminuitive Russian Galim Efimov, who can play as both a centre and on the wing. Though small in stature (listed at 5’7, 158 lbs), Efimov has tremendous balance and is near impossible to knock of the puck because of his low centre of gravity. He is a fantastic on the draw and has shown that his size isn’t as much of an issue as most would assume, given his impressive showing in the KHL playing against men.

6. New Jersey DevilsF Jake Virtanen

Devils have a pretty veteran group of wingers with not many prospects coming up through the system to replace them, so selecting Virtanen would almost be out of necessity. As versatile as they come, Virtanen plays all three forward positions proficiently and is comfortable with being either a set-up man or sniper. His skill-level isn’t as high as the previous selections before him, but scouts do see the potential for him as a late-bloomer. 10/15 scouts interviewed have said that with the proper training and adequate time to practice his craft, Virtanen could be a force to be reckoned with in the future.

7. Colorado Avalanche – RW Damar Tomov

The Avs are severely lacking in elite prospect depth on the right wing and Tomov fits that bill to a T. Tomov has elected to play the tough powerforward role and it is quite an achievement given his size. Though not the shortest player in the draft, Tomov has a stocky build which gives him terrific balance and strength as he cuts into the middle of the ice. Defense is not one of his strengths but he has shown the willingness to back-check unlike many top-tier offensive-minded players.

8. L.A. Kings – C Reid Duke

Have made an incredible drop after winning the Championship only a few years earlier, the Kings would be very happy to take the high-scoring player in the draft in Reid Duke (146 points). Duke plays in the mold of the former L.A. King Jeff Carter and if that holds up then it will make a lot of fans happy. He has endless offensive talent and is a character player that could wear a letter in the NHL some day. Uncanny ability to win draws at opportune times and plays the role of sniper and passer equally well. The selection of Reid also solidifies the centre position for Los Angeles as they lack elite centres outside of Kesler and Kopitar.

9. Carolina Hurricanes – W Alexej Tikhonov

The Canes have made a good start to their rebuild by having Sutter, Rodin, Grigorenko, Scheifele, and Granlund up front, and they could make a complete top-6 line by taking the speedy Alexej Tikhonov out of Russia. Hailing from the famed CSKA Moscow program and already being named as Bure’s successor, Tikhonov is a tremendously fluid skater and among the fastest in this year’s draft class. The young Russian burned the MHL junior league this year with a goal-per-game performance thanks in no small part to his electrifying set of mitts that work at the same warp speed as his skating. His wrist shot is simply phenomenal. Tikhonov still has a pretty lanky frame that must continue to be strengthened, and the Russian factor is very much alive in this potential superstar in the making.

10. Buffalo Sabres (via Wild) – C Dominic Turgeon

The Sabres have a pretty deep prospect pool and might as well select the BPA in Dominic Turgeon. Turgeon has been a force to be reckoned with this year in the WHL playing for Lethbridge and Tri-City, posting PPG+ numbers in the regular season as well as the playoffs. The centre is a good face-off man, has a solid pro shot, and perfectly willing to score goals in the dirty areas of the ice.

11. Nashville Predators – D Robert Gudas

The Preds have a good balance of prospects in all positions including Leddy, Nyquist, Shaw, Barkov, and Etem. However, the loss of Weber and Suter leaves a gaping hole in their defence and the Predators standing this year reflect that disadvantage. For that reason, the team may opt to go a little off the board to select Czech defenceman Robert Gudas (ranked #22), a tremendously gifted offensive defenceman from Red Deer. Gudas has an enviable combination of speed, strength, vision, and a great shot that has helped him terrorize the WHL. In fact, this defenceman lit up the post-season with the Rebels going 2.0 PPG. Coaches and scouts have also praised the Czech defenceman for his superb leadership and many think he has the qualities to become an NHL captain in the future.

12. Anaheim Ducks – W Johnny Tapani

Tapani has one of the fastest acceleration of all skaters in this year’s draft and his fluid skating helps him get around the ice with ease. He loves to lay the body, and combined with his size makes the winger a terrific forechecker. Tapani is a also natural goal-scorer and fairly proficient in his own zone, making him an indispensable player for any team.

13. Buffalo Sabres – D Eric Carlsson

Having selected a forward a couple picks earlier, the Sabres may add to their blue line depth a young Swedish defenceman in Eric Carlsson. Despite the impressive numbers he put up in the J20 leagues with Djurgarden, Carlsson is a stay-at-home defenceman that thrives on shutting down the opposition. His defensive awareness and skating are top notch, as is his willingness to lay the occasional open-ice hit. With Carlsson’s skillset, he could be a valuable defence partner with Myers or Pysyk in the future.

14. Boston Bruins – C Hakan Nyberg

Put up unreal numbers in the Swedish junior leagues and received a promotion to the men’s team, where he continued his impressive play in a limited role. Has decent NHL size for a centre and the way he skates is just beautiful to watch. Can score or set-up teammates equally well. Needs to continue working on his faceoff ability as he has been quite poor this season…or switch to another position.
