Also, there will likely be some good defensemen to choose from. One of Ristolainen, Nurse, Pulock or Morrissey should be available at that spot as well. Zykov would be a reach at 11 IMO, and the risk would be a mistake.
Eh, I dont think its that much of a reach. He is considered around 15 or so on most mock drafts and lists. Dont see how you say you go for Mantha there and say Zykov is a reach. Mantha is rated after Zykov on every list. Zykov also scored 40 goals (Mantha scored 50) but Zykov is 9 months younger.
