Or they saw big potential in McIlrath. NHL scouts don't have the same rankings as the ISS and other places, McIlrath could have ranked higher on a couple NHL teams list than what the general public projected him to be. There is nothing wrong with going for a reach either, sure they could trade down and pick him later, but sometimes that backfires.
