2019 EKL Entry Draft (1st Annual)


Recommended Posts

Nashville is proud to select with the 43rd Overall Pick.. Ilya Nikolayev (?) . Nikolayev represented Team Russia at the WJC and Ivan Hlinka Gretzky where he played alongside top 2019 Draft Eligible Russian Forward Vasili Podkolzin. Ilya was dominant back home in Russia during the MHL Playoffs as an 17-year-old scoring 5 goals and 3 assists in 6 games. We have Illya as a first round talent and are ecstatic we were able to make a trade to acquire him from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Beautiful goal by Nikolayev at the 2018 Hlinka Gretzky vs the United States.







We would like to Thank the Tampa Bay Lightning for working with us to facilitate this trade. Please help us in welcoming Ilya Nikolayev to Nashville Predators family folks!
