Mock Draft By Tankhouse. Teams Organizational Needs as well as BPA are taken into account. Final four are based on how I think they will finish. Comments are welcomed 1. EDM- Ryan Nugent Hopkins. C- Red Deer Rebels WHL. 106pts, 75 Assists No surprise here. An elite center to play with the likes of Hall and Eberle. May spend another year in junior. 2. COL- Gabriel Landeskog. LW-Kitchener Rangers OHL. 33 Goals 66 PTS. The perfect player to play with Matt Duchene. posseses intagibles you cannot coach. He should play next year. 3. FLA- Sean Couturier. C-Drummondville QMJHL. 36Goals 96 pts Big time scorer has NHL size. Could step in next year and compete for a job. 4. NJD- Adam Larsson. D-Skelleftea SWE. 6'3 200 lbs Has everything needed to play immediatly. He will become the cornerstone of NJ's back end for years to come. 5. NYI- Dougie Hamilton. D- Niagra OHL. 6'4 193 lbs 58 pts Big nasty Defencemen who can skate and pass. He could form an elite pairing with Hamonic or de Haan. 6. OTT-Johnathan Huberdeau. C- Saint John QMJHL. 105 pts spent a good chunk of the year on the wing. Would look really good skating with Butler and Spezza. 7. ATL- Ryan Strome. C-Niagra OHL. 106pts The seach for top tier Centre ends with this pick. Could play next year if he adds some wieght. Might turn out to be a suprise next season, ala Skinner. 8. CBJ. Ryan Murphy. D- Kitchener OHL. 79pts The top offensive Defencemen in this years draft class will not make it past CBJ. The Jackets can take thier time with Ryan and let him develop properly. 9. BOS via TOR. Nathan Beaulieu. D- Saint John. 45 pts Will play an even bigger role in SJ next year as many of thier top players will be gone. Boston can afford to take thier time with Nathan. 10. MIN. Joel Armia. LW- Assat FIN. 29pts in 45 games Joel is a power forward with all the skills needed to score and skate at the NHL level, might play next year but will likely spend another year in the Finnish league honing his craft. 11. COL via STL. Oscar Klefbom. D- Farjestad SWE. 6'3 196 lbs Making a major leap in the rankings Oscar has all the tools to be a shutdown defender in the NHL. Will likely spend another year in Sweden. 12. CAR. Sven Bartschi. LW- Portland WHL. 34Goals 85 pts The Swiss sensation will need some time to develop, but when he makes the jump he will be a big time scorer for the Hurricanes. 13. CAL. Mika Zibanjed. C- Djurgarden SWE. 6'2 192 lbs Mika was called up to the big club juring the World juniors stayed up for the rest of the year. He's close to making the jump but will likely spend another year in Sweden 14. DAL. Duncan Siemans. D- Saskatoon WHL. 6'3 196 43 pts 121 PIMs Big, mean and nasty Duncan will be the cornestone for a Dallas organization in need of an identity on it's back end. 15. NYR. Connor Murphy. D- US U18 USHL. 6'3 195lbs Another late riser in the rankings Connor was the hero for the US under 18's this year. He'll need some time to develop but should be a gem for the blueshirts in a couple years 16. BUF. Mark McNiell. C- Prince Albert WHL. 6'1 204 lbs 81 pts A big Center with a scorers touch, McNiell should spend more time in junior to develop his all round game but already has NHL size 17. MTL. J.T. Miller. C US U18 USHL. 6'1 198lbs 37pts in 48 gmaes Montreal has had a smallish top 6 and addresses thier need for some size in the top of thier lineup JT needs time but will fit in nicely with the youth in the Habs system. 18. CHI. Niklas Jensen. LW-Oshawa OHL. 6'2 188 lbs 58pts Chicago is solid on the backend and down the middle. They opt to take a budding powerforward. Niklas has the size to play at the next level but he needs more experience. 19. EDM via L.A.. Jameison Oleksiak. D-Northeastern College. 6'7 244 lbs With all the forwards they have drafted over the last couple years the Oil use this pick to draft what should be the rock of thier defence for years to come. 20. PHO. Mark Sheifele. C-Barrie OHL. 75 pts 6'2 182lbs Mark was Canada's best forward at this years U18's. He needs to add some muscle to his tall frame but has all the tools to be a great player for Phoenix 21. OTT via NAS. Brandon Saad. LW Saginaw OHL. 6'1 208lbs 55pts Ottawa in need of some size up front adds the big power forward from Pittsburg. He's a few years away from the NHL. 22. ANA. Scott Mayfield. D-Youngstown USHL. 6'4 197 Anahiem has a lack of toughness on thier backend. Scott needs to grow in to his 6.4 frame but will terrorize opposition forwards for years. 23. PIT. Ty Rattie. LW- Portland WHL. 5'11 170 79 pts The young sniper brings speed and skill to an already potent Pittsburg lineup, could be deadly playing on Crosby's wing. 24. DET. Jonas Brodin. D. 6'1 169lbs Hes a bit undersized but Detroit always takes it's time deveoping it's prospects. 25. TOR via PHI. Zack Phillips. C -Saint John QMJHL. 6'1 181lbs 95 points With Kadri and McKegg both making the move to the wing, Toronto will look to add skill at the Center position. They get this in spades with Phillips. 26. WAS. Vladislav Namestnikov. C -Windsor OHL. 6'0 166 lbs 68pts Unafraid to draft Russians. Wasington adds high end talent late in the first round. 27. TOR Via BOS. Boone Jenner. C -Oshawa OHL. 6'1 204lbs Boone has the size to play in the NHL now, he needs to gain more experience however. When he makes the jump he will become a fan favorite due to his work ethic. 28. SJ. Tomas Jurco RW -Saint John QMJHL 6'2 187 lbs 56pts Tomas is the fourth player drafted from Saint john this round, he needs some time but has the skill to play top 6 even on a team stacked up front like San Jose. 29. TB. David Musil. D -Vancouver WHL. 6'3 198 25 pts TB has a real lack on thier backend as far as prospects go. Musil should be a good fit for the Lightning. 30. VAN. Matthew Puempel LW -Peterborough OHL. 6'0 198 Matt has bucket loads of potential and should be a great fit in VanCity where there is a drop-off in skill level amongst thier prospects after Hodgeson and Schroeder.
