ORDER TEAM PLAYER THE DEETS
1 FLA Seth Jones, D,
Portland (WHL)
A franchise defenceman who will anchor the Avs blueline for years to come.
2 COL Nathan MacKinnon, C, Halifax (QMJHL) The Panthers prospect pool is lacking down centre ice - MacKinnon fills a huge hole.
3 TBL Jonathan Drouin, LW, Halifax (QMJHL) Like the Panthers, the Bolts fill a big hole with the addition of the dynamic Drouin.
4 NSH Aleksander Barkov, C, Tappara (FIN) The pivot, who regularly logged 20:00+ a night in the Finnish Elite League, is already pro-ready.
5 CAR Valeri Nichushkin, RW, Chelyabinsk (RUS) The big-bodied Russian is a strong skater, has great hands and has a nose for the net.
6 EDM Elias Lindholm, C,
Brynas (SWE)
The extremely talented Lindholm could very well become the Flames number one centre.
7 CGY Darnell Nurse, D,
Sault Ste. Marie (OHL)
The Oilers back-end needs help and Nurse has all the tools to be a top defenceman in the NHL.
8 PHI Sean Monahan, C,
Ottawa (OHL)
For a second straight year, the Sabres nab a pivot in the first round.
9 BUF Hunter Shinkaruk, C/LW, Medicine Hat (WHL) The Devils inject a ton of skill, speed into their prospect pool with the addition of Shinkaruk.
10 NJD Rasmus Ristolainen, D, TPS (FIN) The rearguard plays with an edge, is a great skater and defends well - an instant upgrade to any blueline.
11 PHX Ryan Pulock, D,
Brandon (WHL)
Pulock can play a physical game and boasts one heckuva shot - will mesh nicely on the Flyers back-end.
12 PHX Alexander Wennberg, C, Djurgarden (SWE-2) Speed and skill are Wennberg's calling cards; his shooting percentage, while playing against men this season, was 18.9%.
13 DET Max Domi, C,
London (OHL)
While not the biggest guy in the draft, Domi plays a big man's style. Generates plenty of offence and leaves it all on the ice every game.
14 WPG Andre Burakovsky, LW, Malmo (SWE-2) Burakovsky's ceiling is high - he has the skill set to be an offensive game-changer.
15 CBJ Valentin Zykov, LW, Baie-Comeau (QMJHL) Led all QMJHL rookies in scoring in 2012-13 and averaged 1.12 points-per-game. He also has a solid frame and a great work ethic.
16 CBJ
(From MIN)
Zachary Fucale, G,
Halifax (QMJHL)
A great investment in the search for a franchise netminder for the post-Ryan Miller days.
17 Bo Horvat, C,
London (OHL)
Horvat is a player a coach can throw out in any situation; he's incredibly versatile and plays a defensively sound game.
18 Adam Erne, LW,
Quebec (QMJHL)
Strong skating, good hockey sense and staunch offensive instincts make Erne a very solid pick.
19 NYI
(From NYR)
Nikita Zadorov, D,
London (OHL)
A 6-foot-5, 230 lbs. blueliner who skates well? Could be an absolute stud if he continues to progress.
20 Anthony Mantha, RW, Val-d'Or (QMJHL) The 6-foot-4 forward was one of major junior three players to score 50 goals this season; very gifted offensively.
21 Joshua Morrissey, D,
Prince Albert (WHL)
The Calgary, AB product has a boatload of offensive upside to his game.
22 CGY
(From STL)

Robert Hagg, D,
Modo Jr. (SWE-JR.)
Was trusted to shut down Nail Yakupov's line in the WJC semi-final and did. Plays a great two-way game and makes excellent passes.
23 Frederik Gauthier, C, Rimouski (QMJHL) Gauthier is a great two-way centre that excels in the faceoff circle. He plays responsibly, has great hands and is creative with the puck.
24 Mirco Mueller, D,
Everett (WHL)
While Mueller isn't a flashy player by any means, he does everything well. Projects to be a very serviceable NHL defenceman.
25 Kerby Rychel, LW,
Windsor (OHL)
Rychel has great hands and is a creative playmaker; he also plays a physical brand of hockey and is willing to drop the gloves.
26 Ryan Hartman, C/RW, Plymouth (OHL) Hartman played both on the wing and at centre ice this year; has the skill to contribute offensively but can also be put in a shutdown role.
27
(From LAK)
Curtis Lazar, C/RW, Edmonton (WHL) Led the Edmonton Oil Kings with 38 goals and was an excellent in the room; full of character and competitiveness.
28 CGY
(From PIT)
Ian McCoshen, D,
Waterloo (USHL)
A great shutdown defender that plays his man well. He uses his 6-foot-2, 207 lbs. frame well and has an edge to his game.
29 CGY
(From BOS)
Shea Theodore, D,
Seattle (WHL)
Theodore's offensive skill set is top notch; he's progressed well in terms of his play in his own zone.
30 CHI Samuel Morin, D,
Rimouski (QMJHL)
Morin is your prototypical big defensive defenceman; he does have some untapped offensive potential.
