ROUND ONE: 1. Edmonton Oilers - C Ryan Nugent-Hopkins EDM needs help on the blueline but won't pass up the chance to add a bonafide franchise center to ride shotgun with Hall for the next decade or so. 2. Colorado Avalanche - D Adam Larsson COL is thrilled to add a franchise D to a thinning blueline, and could have a scary 1-2 if Erik Johnson hits his max potential. 3. Florida Panthers - C Jonathan Huberdeau Huberdeau is a clutch performer who puts up big numbers and can finally give a weak forward corps some punch. 4. New Jersey Devils - LW Gabriel Landeskog Landeskog hits all the right notes for the Devils - great two-way player, offensive threat, leadership qualities and can play a hard-nosed game. 5. New York Islanders - C Sean Couturier Like the Oilers, the Isles could stand to add defense but Couturier has too much upside to ignore, and provides a major boost to a promising forward group. 6. Ottawa Senators - C Mika Zibanejad With a blueline filled with promising young guns, the Sens finally address their needs up front with a player who could step in immediately. 7. Winnipeg Jets - D Dougie Hamilton The Jets need help everywhere but with most of the top offensive guns off the board, they turn to Hamilton to bolster a young blueline. 8. Columbus Blue Jackets - D Nathan Beaulieu After going with a centre last year, the Jackets add help on the blueline with a guy who can do a bit of everything. 9. Boston Bruins (from TOR) - D Ryan Murphy Adding a slick puck-moving defenseman like Murphy adds a dimension to the B's prospect pool that has been missing for a long time. 10. Minnesota Wild - D Duncan Siemens After going with a forward last year, the Wild look to replace departed 2009 first rounder Nick Leddy with Siemens, another D-man who can do a bit of everything. 11. Colorado Avalanche (from STL) - C Ryan Strome The Avs count their lucky stars again as one of the most gifted offensive forwards in the draft falls in their lap, making for a great first round with Larsson. 12. Carolina Hurricanes - C Mark McNeill Debate rages about whether the Canes will finally go for a defenseman or not, but with the marquee blueliners gone, they jump at McNeill. 13. Calgary Flames - D Jamieson Oleksiak In one swoop the Flames quickly replace the departure of top prospect Tim Erixon with the monstrous Oleksiak. 14. Dallas Stars - C Mark Scheifele The Stars will be happy to add a big, rugged offensive player like Scheifele, in the lineage of captain Brendan Morrow. 15. New York Rangers - RW Joel Armia The Rangers' D is stocked with young prospects so adding a pure goalscorer like Armia is a no brainer. 16. Buffalo Sabres - LW Sven Bartschi Bartschi is a top-six offensive winger which is exactly what the Sabres' prospect pool is lacking. 17. Montreal Canadiens - C J.T. Miller Miller is a good skater, a two-way player, plays a hard-nosed game, and is a smart kid - and an American. Right up the Habs' alley. 18. Chicago Blackhawks - C Rocco Grimaldi Grimaldi may be tiny but he's a scoring machine and the Hawks could use a player like him in a weak forward group. 19. Edmonton Oilers (from LA) - D Oscar Klefbom After grabbing RNH, the Oilers grab a defenseman with enormous upside in Klefbom. 20. Phoenix Coyotes - RW Nicklas Jensen With two D in the first rounds of '09 and '10, the Coyotes grab a big forward with nice offensive upside. 21. Ottawa Senators (from NSH) - C Zack Phillips The Sens continue to bolster their offense with a player who, while not without question marks, could be a huge steal this late in the first round. 22. Anaheim Ducks - RW Tyler Biggs A big, nasty forward, there are questions about his offensive upside but his hard-nosed style meshes well with the Ducks' aesthetic. 23. Pittsburgh Penguins - LW Matt Puempel Puempel's game is uneven but he knows how to score, and the Penguins, forever in search of scoring wingers, would do well to grab him. 24. Detroit Red Wings - D Jonas Brodin With Detroit's defensive depth thinning at a rapid rate, it almost makes too much sense of them to grab the highly skilled Swedish blueliner. 25. Toronto Maple Leafs (from PHI) - LW Brandon Saad Saad is a big body who doesn't always play a power forward game, but he has a moldable frame and can put the puck in the net. 26. Washington Capitals - D Joe Morrow The Caps are strong in all areas but could use some extra D depth and Morrow is a tantalizing grab at 26. 27. Tampa Bay Lightning - C Boone Jenner Jenner is one of the top character players in the draft and seems to fit well with Yzerman's team concept. 28. San Jose Sharks - D Connor Murphy Murphy was plagued by injuries but has loads of talent, and the Sharks will be keen to bolster their defense depth with his addition. 29. Toronto Maple Leafs (from BOS) - D Scott Mayfield There's no chance Burke waits to the second round to grab Mayfield - a big, mean defenseman with a bit of offensive upside. 30. Vancouver Canucks - RW Dmitri Jaskin Jaskin has serious offensive talent and the Canucks won't let him slip any further than 30th. ROUND TWO: 31. Edmonton Oilers - D David Musil Musil is a big, steady defenseman with NHL bloodlines that scouts go crazy for. He's slipped, but won't last long in the second round. 32. St. Louis Blues (from COL) - D Adam Clendening Clendening is a solid puck-mover with some offensive upside and, having traded top prospect David Runblad last year to get Vladimir Tarasenko, the Blues will go back to bolstering their D depth. 33. Florida Panthers - C Vladislav Namestnikov The Panthers added a wealth of offensive prospects in the first two rounds last year and will continue to do so with Huberdeau and Namestnikov this year, giving them a major upgrade up front. 34. New York Islanders - G John Gibson The Islanders have a wealth of middling goaltending prospects but the addition of Gibson gives them a legitimate stud for the future. 35. Ottawa Senators - RW Tomas Jurco The re-tooling of the Sens' forward corps continues with the addition of Jurco, who has questions about his consistency but can flat-out take over a game. 36. Chicago Blackhaws (from WPG) - RW Ty Rattie Rattie is an extremely skilled top-six player who immediately boosts the Hawks' forward prospect group. 37. Columbus Blue Jackets - C Daniel Catenacci Catenacci is small but with undeniable skill and can slide into a third-line role if needed. 38. Nashville Predators (from NJ) - C Shane Prince Prince could be a sleeper at this point as he has a lot of offensive skill, both as a playmaker and a scorer, which the Preds desperately need. 39. Toronto Maple Leafs - LW Lucas Lessio Lessio is a big goalscoring winger with a chip on his shoulder, and doesn't shy away from the rough stuff. An easy choice for Burke at 39. 40. Boston Bruins (from MIN) - RW Brett Ritchie Ritchie has a big frame but doesn't always play a physical game, but the B's can worry about that after - too much to like to pass on here. 41. St. Louis Blues - C Viktor Rask If the Blues can ever get Rask's head on straight, they will have gotten a steal in the second round, because when he's on his game he's an easy first round pick. 42. Carolina Hurricanes - D Stuart Percy Buoyed by a strong Memorial Cup performance, the Canes won't hesitate to add Percy, a dependable player who takes care of his own zone first. 43. Chicago Blackhawks (from CAL, TOR) - D Ryan Sproul Sproul is a big guy who can skate and shoot the puck, despite being raw in his own zone. With two forwards with their first two picks, Sproul is a good value pick on D at 43. 44. Dallas Stars - LW Stefan Noesen Noesen is a grinding player with a bit of an offensive touch, and as luck would have it, hails from Texas. A match made in heaven if there ever was one. 45. Calgary Flames (from NYR) - RW Rickard Rakell Rakell is a gritty character type of player who would fit well with the Flames' hardnosed if unspectacular style. 46. St. Louis Blues (from BUF) - C Matthew Nieto Nietro is an all-offense type and could be a nice sleeper pick for the Blues at this point. 47. Florida Panthers (from MTL) - D Robbie Russo Russo isn't flashy but plays a smart, simple two-way game. 48. Chicago Blackhawks - LW Phillip Danault Danault is a heady third-line type who would compliment the Hawks' two other more offense-oriented selections in this draft well. 49. Los Angeles Kings - C Alexander Khokhlachev One of the few organizations still taking chances on Russians this early, the Kings will be drooling over the thought of pairing Khokhlachev up with 2010 draft pick Maxim Kitsyn. 50. New York Islanders (from MTL) - D Joel Edmundson After taking a forward and a goalie, the Isles go with Edmundson, a big but slight defenseman who will drop the gloves and stick up for his teammates. 51. Phoenix Coyotes - C Nick Shore Shore is a player who projects as a third liner that can do spot duty on a second line, and decent value at the 51st pick. 52. Nashville Predators - RW Seth Ambroz Ambroz has all kinds of questions about him but if he can fulfill his exceptional potential, he'd add an important dimension to the Predators' top six. 53. Anaheim Ducks - G Samu Perhonen Perhonen had a year that was all over the map but the Ducks can't pass on his upside, especially with Jonas Hiller's future in question and no immediate upgrade on the way. 54. Pittsburgh Penguins - C Vincent Trocheck Trocheck is a gritty bottom-six character forward who has a nose for the net and some offensive upside. 55. Detroit Red Wings - LW Nikita Kucherov Kucherov is the highest ranking Russian playing in Russia, but his jaw-dropping performance at the U18's (21 points in 7 games) will have him going off the board sooner than normal. 56. Phoenix Coyotes (from PHI) - D Rasmus Bengtsson Bengtsson is a solid puckmover with nice size who needs work in his own zone, but has appealing upside. 57. Calgary Flames (from WSH, NYR) - C Joseph Labate Labate is a big forward who ripped it up in high school this year and might make a good value pick at this point. 58. Tampa Bay Lightning - D Xavier Ouellet Ouellet is a smart, positionally sound defenseman who turned some heads with his offensive production this year. 59. Boston Bruins - C Michael St. Croix St. Croix is a gritty, heart-and-soul type who leaves it all on the ice and can chip in with some offense too. 60. Vancouver Canucks - D Mike McKee McKee is huge, has a hard shot, and has great mobility - in short, the type of defensemen GMs love.
