@TT1 Yes, montreal is also high on Samoskevich and after reading a few reports, including the one posted above, and watching some video I will be happy with him provided no major surprises in terms of players dropping to our position. He has some legit talent with his skating, stickhandling and vision and can play both C and W. The kid will have to work on adding some pounds but he will have plenty of time to do that in Michigan.
Swedish winger William Stromgren has been playing in the Modo Hockey system but was recently traded to Rogle BK.

2021 NHL Draft #39: William Stromgren Scouting Report
The Covid pandemic means that this has been a tough season for many prospects. However, for those who normally play in the OHL, things have been particularly difficult as their season never quite started. Oshawa Generals centre Brett Harrison is one such prospect. With the OHL season never starting, he headed to Finland to play in the KooVee Tampere system. He played one game for the big club in the Mestis, Finland’s second division. This gave Harrison experience playing against men. Harrison also played seven games for their Under-20 club. He scored four goals and five assists for nine points. Harrison also played for Team Canada at the IIHF Under-20 World Championships. He helped the team to a gold medal, scoring two goals in the seven-game tournament.
The 16th overall pick in the 2019 OHL Draft, Harrison had a solid rookie season for the Generals. He scored 21 goals and 16 assists for 37 points in 58 games played. Harrison also played for Team Canada White at the Under-17 World Hockey Challenge. He scored two goals in six tournament games. Harrison has also been an exceptionally disciplined player with just 16 penalty minutes total over the last two seasons.

Drafted by the Guelph Storm in the 2018 OHL Draft, Toronto native Ayrton Martino instead opted to play for the St. Michael's Buzzers in the OJHL to maintain NCAA Eligibility.

2021 NHL Draft #41: Ayrton Martino Scouting Report
He's one of my main second round targets. His skating is Rhett Pitlick-like and he's got a pretty good all around game on top of that. Lots of raw tools to develop with him.
Also, 2 out of 4 aren’t playing for the team that drafted them. So just sign or trade for goalies that were first round picks
yes but on of those 2 who is not with the same team played 13 yrs with the team that drafted him and won 3 cups with them
i'd like to see what it was like for the past couple of year. I'm sure there's plenty of keeper drafter outside of the 1st as well.
Vasilevskiy and Varley were there last year too.
Vegas was rolling with Lehner, who was a 2nd rounder (46) while 1st overall Fleury sat on the bench.
The one outlier was Khudobin in Dallas. 7th round pick. 3rd rounder Bishop was on the bench.
The year before:
Rask: 1st round
Binnington: 3rd round
Mrazek: 5th round
That's much more of a mixed bag. I guess anyone big on pattern recognition was only drafting goalies in odd-numbered rounds that summer?
Hes not getting to the Habs 2nd round picks IMO. If we were picking middle of the round he might be there but i doubt he is in thenlate 50s early 60s.
Didn't follow this draft at all but any way we draft Jesper Wallstedt?
No chance barring some sort of PR catastrophe
No. He should be top 10. Top 15 for sure.
You're probably right, sadly The chances are pretty slim indeed.
AT 29, the Habs are proud to select...Prokhor Poltapov.
Like the player, but we can't draft 29th. Only 28, 30 or 31.
Hey, what is one spot ahead or behind...lol I forgot the Coyotes pick was cancelled.
We're picking last and I won't accept anything else
Top 151 Prospects for 2021 NHL Draft: Owen Power leads Corey Pronman's final rankings
From a few days ago. (It's behind a paywall BTW )
Happy with this being the year for a meme run. There's just no prospects outside of Eklund, Wallstedt and Johnson that I'm really high on. Plus maybe Russian uncertainty leaves Chibrikov for us late.
Spencer Knight (1st rounder in 2019) finished the playoffs as Florida's #1 goalie even though they have a $10m goalie on their roster. Askarov (1st rounder in 2020) could be another great Russian goalie.
I'm betting on two goalies (Wallstedt and Cossa) going in the 1st round next month. Possibly in the top 20.
At 28th, L'Heureux, Chibrikov, Olausson all seem interesting.
Morrow, Poltapov, Olausson and L'Heureux for me.
