1. -Seth Jones, Defense: With Huberdeau, Bjugstad, Shore, Grimaldi and Howden as forward prospects, Jones will make the back end as solid as the front for the Panthers.

2. -Nathan MacKinnon, Centre: As well as Drouin is playing, MacKinnon just has so much talent and will look great with Kuznetsov and Forsberg.

3. -Jonathan Drouin, Left Wing: Another small winger for Buffalo but how can you pass over him?

4. -Alexander Barkov, Centre: As much as the Avalanche really dont need another centre, they dont really have a choice at this point. Barkov can play wing if needed.

5. -Sean Monahan, Centre: A 1-2 punch of Stamkos and Monahan will be absolutely deadly. Monahan has been compared to Toews.

6. -Elias Lindholm, Centre: A big D-man would hace been good at this spot too but Lindholm will give the Oilers a great young top 6 in a few years.

7. -Ryan Pulock, Defense: Absolutely 0 offensive D-man in this prospect pool. Pulock will be able to anchor the powerplay for many years.

8. -Darnell Nurse, Defense: Big, physical, mobile, gritty D-man. A typical Flyers pick.

9. -Adam Erne, Right Wing: Maybe a bit early for Erne but he would be the perfect pick for the Stars.

10. -Hunter Shinkaruk, Forward: Probably one of the most talented players in the draft falls to 10th for the Jackets first pick in round 1.

11. Predators -Rasmus Ristolainen, Defense

12. Blue Jackets (via NYR) -Nikita Zadorov, Defense

13. Islanders -Valeri Nichushkin, Forward

14. Coyotes - Alexander Wennberg, Centre

15. Sharks - Josh Morrissey, Defense

16. Hurricanes - Robert Hagg, Defense

17. Devils - Anthony Mantha

18. Maple Leafs - Frederik Gauthier

19. Jets - Valentin Zykov

20. Canucks - Curtis Lazar

21. Wild - Max Domi

22. Blue Jackets (Kings) - Kerby Rychel

23. Red Wings - Mirco Mueller

24. Senators - Bo Horvat

25. Blues - JT Compher

26. Bruins - Morgan Klimchuk

27. Penguins - Andre Burakovsky

28. Canadiens - Ryan Hartman

29. Ducks - Nicolas Petan

30. Blackhawks - Zach Fucale
Here's where I feel you went wrong;


I feel Adam Erne is way too early and Dallas should try and aim for Hunter. Also Islander won't take a Russian, Mantha would be perfect for them. He's what Islander need, a scorer to play along with Tavares. Then Zykov is too high on this list. Will he get drafted in the top 30?? Not sure, I bet he won't. Then Fucale as potential to be a 1st rounder but not soo sure Chicago would draft him, at 30th probably but I think New Jersey trade down and get Fucal and a 3rd for their 1st (17th overall). That my take on this draft.

You still made a decent mock since this year is the hardest in recent years since there's over 40 player's that deserve to be in the 1st round.
