2015 Mock Draft: V3


thejazz97

1. Edmonton Oilers - Connor McDavid, C McDavid is the obvious choice here, as he has absolutely destroyed the OHL and has garnered more hype than any other prospect over the last 10 years. Really not too much to say here. HM: Jack Eichel

2. Buffalo Sabres - Jack Eichel, C Again, Eichel is another obvious choice. Almost the McDavid of the NCAA, the BU centerman has a passionate fanbase and even a college linemate waiting for him in upstate New York. HM: Dylan Strome

3. Arizona Coyotes - Mitch Marner, C While Dylan Strome may have size, Marner has had the fortune to play with two other Coyotes prospects: Max Domi and Christian Dvorak. Marner has had fantastic success with the latter this past season, and if and when Arizona does indeed pick him, that success should continue on to the NHL. HM: Mikko Rantanen

4. Toronto Maple Leafs - Dylan Strome, C Not only is Strome a big centerman (something the leafs seem to be lacking), he's offensively skilled. Not to mention that the Otters center is from Mississauga, just south of the Maple Leafs' home. While Kadri and Bozak may have shown flashes of being a 1C, neither have truly acted the part, and Strome can fill that position in a year or two. HM: Noah Hanifin

5. Carolina Hurricanes - Mikko Rantanen, RW Rantanen is a big, skilled winger who fits nicely into the 'Canes' very weak RW prospect pool. Not only will he provide size, but he's an extremely skilled playmaker who is always a threat on the ice. A very covetable prospect indeed. HM: Noah Hanifin

6. New Jersey Devils - Pavel Zacha, C Zacha is big and skilled and a centerman - the exact type of player that the Devils need. However, he's had some troubles adapting to the North American game, and that could be something to watch out for. HM: Matthew Barzal

7. Philadelphia Flyers - Lawson Crouse, LW Crouse has huge upside and huge size, two things that the Flyers will be salivating over if he drops to their position. He was Kingston's top scorer and has a game that should translate well to the NHL. HM: Timo Meier

8. Columbus Blue Jackets - Noah Hanifin, D With top defensive prospect Mike Reilly leaving the organization, the Jackets will have a pretty gaping whole to fill. Who do they pick? The best defenseman in the draft, BC's Noah Hanifin. Hanifin shapes his game after Drew Doughty. HM: Ivan Provorov

9. San Jose Sharks - Timo Meier, LW Once again, this is a pick filling a positional need. San Jose has good prospect depth in all non-goalie positions, except for the left wing. Meier is a big forward who can score, something that will be relied on heavily in Pacific Division matchups. HM: Ivan Provorov

10. Colorado Avalanche - Zach Werenski, D Werenski is a big, solid defender who is able to play with men, as he's done very well playing in the NCAA with Michigan this year. The d-man will help out on the back end in future seasons. HM: Ivan Provorov

11. Florida Panthers - Ivan Provorov, D The Panthers gain an excellent puck-moving defenseman who can put up lots of points.

12. Dallas Stars - Kyle Connor, LW Dallas needs wingers, and Connor is decently sized and can score.

13. Los Angeles Kings - Jakub Zboril, D After the whole Slava Voynov incident, it might be time to pick a player who can replace him.

14. Boston Bruins - Evgeny Svechnikov, LW Svechnikov is a winger with great size and scoring ability.

15. Calgary Flames - Jake DeBrusk, LW Not physical and needs to bulk up but can definitely pot some goals for the youth movement in Cowtown.

16. Edmonton Oilers - Thomas Chabot, D After getting yet another forward with yet another 1st overall pick, Edmonton would be wise to choose the top defender.

17. Winnipeg Jets - Jansen Harkins, C The kid has heart, a lot in fact. He'll fit in perfectly with the raucous crowds at the MTS Centre.

18. Ottawa Senators - Nick Merkley, RW Merkley fills a lacking Ottawa RW prospect pool.

19. Detroit Red Wings - Denis Guryanov, W Guryanov is fast and big and has a knack for the net.

20. Minnesota Wild - Matthew Barzal, C The Wild snag a major dropper that was a point-per-game in the WHL.

21. Buffalo Sabres - Jeremy Roy, D Roy is a two-way defenseman that will add skill to the Buffalo system.

22. Washington Capitals - Travis Konecny, C Can play anywhere on the ice and can be a game breaker for whoever gets him.

23. Vancouver Canucks - Brock Boeser, RW Shoring up their RW prospect depth, Boeser is a goal-scorer by nature and is a great pick for a team that could use a few more goals.

24. Toronto Maple Leafs - Oliver Kylington, D Taking a chance on a player whose stock has dropped tremendously this season, Kylington could turn out to be the steal of the draft.

25. Winnipeg Jets - Daniel Sprong, RW This forward showed off his offensive skill in the Q, and has some defensive skill, too.

26. Montreal Canadiens - Alexander Dergachev, C Montreal adds another big center to their system.

27. Anaheim Ducks - Filip Chlapik, C Not the flashiest prospect, but should fit in well in Anaheim.

28. Tampa Bay Lightning - Noah Juulsen, D Tampa drafts a player who has quietly worked his way up the list.

29. Arizona Coyotes* - Vince Dunn, D Dunn is an offensive defenseman who works hard along the boards. Should work well with the Coyotes' system.

30. Philadelphia Flyers* - Joel Eriksson Ek, C A bigger player that has a good shot could add a useful tool to the Flyers' belt of centermen.

There is exactly a 0% chance Barzal drops to 20th.

I wouldn't be surprised.

Thanks. It's hard, because I went with positional needs for a few. The d-men just got pushed to the back burner in the top 10.

Would love to snag Broeser, natural goal scorer that would increase our forward depth. Really hope we can get 2 early second round picks and grab 2 of Dunn/Chabot/Juulsen/Meloche

I've been hearing that Edmonton is considering to use their 16th pick to grab Ilya Samsonov, they need a goalie of the future more than anything and there is a lot of upside from what I have read about him, plus Edmonton has Nurse to look forward to on defence (and possibly Dougie Hamilton?). By the way, if Florida's top 2 dmen down the road will be Ekblad and Provorov..dammnn.

Truth be told, I'd be a bit choked it we took a forward with Kylington and Dunn still on the table.

Thankfully I was proven wrong.

 

Still maintain that Kylington is gonna be legit, tho.
