1. Tampa Bay- Steven Stamkos C
2. Los Angeles- Zach Bogosian, D
3. Atlanta- Drew Doughty, D
4. St. Louis- Nikita Filatov, LW
5. NY Islanders- Luke Schenn, D

7. Toronto- Tyler Myers, D
8. Phoenix- Kirill Petrov, RW
9. Nashville (from FLA)- Kyle Beach, C
10. Vancouver- Zach Boychuk, C,
11. Chicago- Cody Hodgson, C,
12. Anaheim (from EDM)- Erik Karlsson, D,
13. Buffalo- Luca Sbisa, D
14. Carolina- Mikkel Boedker, LW
15. Nashville- Chet Pickard, G
16. Boston- Colin Wilson, C
17. Calgary- Anton Gustafsson, C
18. Ottawa- Colby Robak, D
19. Columbus (from COL)- Joshua Bailey, C
20. NY Rangers- Zac Dalpe, C/RW
21. New Jersey- Michael Del Zotto, D
22. Edmonton (from ANA)- Mattias Tedenby, LW
23. Washington- Viktor Tikhonov, LW/RW
24. Minnesota- John Carlson, D
25. Montreal- Greg Nemisz, C
26. Buffalo (from S.J.)- Jamie Arniel, C
27. Philadelphia- Jyri Niemi, D
28. Los Angeles (from DAL)- Thomas McCollum, G

    Boedker is going to go higher than that i think, prolly up around the 9 or ten mark. But overall, pretty good

  2. greatlife15 says:

    I personally believe Doughty and Bogosian might flip spots and Schenn be 6th instead of 5th but that's a pretty solid mock draft 🙂

  3. Moose161 says:

    I could see Boedker slippping a bit, but not to 14th.  I also believe that Colin Wilson will go top 10 for sure and flip spots with Kirill Petrov (Who may slip to mid second round).

  4. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    good choices. If Pietrangelo is thought to be picked around 6 you can forget about columbus trading that pick.

    the small market teams usually arent the ones that go after the russian players that are tough to get signed. (which now all europeans fall into that catagory). He may fall to the leafs 7th (but they need a D-man badly) or even vancouver at 10th.

  5. PointMeAtTheSky says:

    I believe Ottawa should take either Chet Pickard or Jakob Markstrom. I have a feeling both will be quite good one day.

    I like Myers to Toronto, and Boychuk to Vancouver. But I think Montreal should select Nicolas Deschamps.

    If Hodgson is still there when the Canucks draft they would definitely take him over Boychuk. Boedker and Wilson will go a lot higher than 14th and 16th respectively. Other than that it looks pretty good.

  7. Bruins4771 says:

    Why why why why why why would the bruins take a center?  Savard Bergeron Kessel (technically) Krejci and Sobotka/ Nokelainen at the NHL level Zach Hamill Blake Wheeler (possibly a wing)and Brad Marchand at the minor league level.
    I dont mind you doing a mock draft but the Bruins are drafting a dman or trading. 

  8. Bure96 says:

    Not a chance the Nuck's take Boychuk if Hodgson and Wilson are available. And if Beach, Hodgson, and Wilson all go in the top 10 i'm sure they'll trade that pick.

    Although, not a bad mock draft.

    As someone who watches zero junior hockey, I have absolutely no idea on how to rank these guys.  Nor do I pay attention to hype.

  10. mojo19 says:

    For the record, this is the 3rd mock draft on this site.

    Looks good I think Colin Wilson will go higher, also the 10th highest rated euro skater (don't know his name off the top of my head) put up unreal numbers I could see him going in the first round or high 2nd ahead of a bunch of guys because of his raw offensive talent. (Hes russian that's all I can tell you)

     I posted this over a week ago, and I did it quickly and without too much analyzing of each team so I may have gotten some totally wrong, like Boston and LA.

    1. Stamkos-Tampa Bay
    2. Doughty-Los Angelous
    3. Bogosian-Atlanta
    4. Wilson-St.Louis
    5. Shenn-NYI
    6. Pieterangelo-Columbus

    8. Filatov-Phoenix
    9. Beach-Nashville
    10.Del Zotto-Vancouver
    28.Allen-Los Angelous

    I know a mock draft is just someones guess, but I guess that the Poenix Coyotes don't select a european. I think if you flipped 8 and 9 that would be a start. If Wilson and Boedker go were you have them going the Bruins and Hurricanes are going to be more then excited to pick those guys that late. But hey these are just guess's, right?

  14. Bure96 says:

    Why would Boedker fall to 15? Why would Atlanta or Los Angeles pick goalies? Absolutly no chance Staal gets picked in the 1st round. Why the hell would the Canucks pick Del Zotto?

    You know very little about hockey…
