2013 NHL Mock Draft - II

2013 NHL Mock Draft - II

My second 2013 mock draft. Wanted to try a few different scenarios so it's not the same mock every single time. A few surprises, a few risers, a few fallers. I'm happy to receive constructive criticism, thoughts, ideas, comments, etc. I'm planning on adding a 2nd round fairly soon, so stay tuned. Hope you enjoy!

First 2013 Mock - http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...773&highlight=



1st Overall - Colorado Avalanche
C, Nathan MacKinnon - 6'0", 182 - RH

Assuming Roy, Sakic, and the rest of the Colorado FO aren't bluffing, the Avalanche go BPA and select the tremendously skilled, franchise cornerstone, Nathan MacKinnon.


2nd Overall - Florida Panthers
C, Aleksander 'Sasha' Barkov - 6'2", 205 - LH

The Pathers are extremely disappointed that MacKinnon isn't available at #2, but select arguably the most talented player in the draft in Sasha Barkov.


3rd Overall - Tampa Bay Lightning
LW, Jonathan Drouin - 5'10", 186 - LH

The Lightning are extremely tempted to select the once touted #1 Overall defenseman Seth Jones, but lean towards the future St. Louis replacement in Drouin.


4th Overall - Nashville Predators
D, Seth Jones - 6'4", 205 - RH

Extremely surprised Jones is still available at #4, the Preds snatch up the most compete player in the Draft and add to a future D-core that already consists of elite talent in Weber and Josi.


5th Overall - Carolina Hurricanes
LW, Valeri Nichushkin - 6'4", 202 - LH

The Canes step up to the podium and select the massive, power forward who can instantly step into their top 6.


6th Overall - Calgary Flames
C, Elias Lindholm - 6'0", 181 - RH

Needing help in all positions, the Flames decide to stay on the board this year and select the future #1 center they've lacked for quite a while.


7th Overall - Edmonton Oilers
C, Sean Monahan, 6'2", 187 - LH

Even though they really should take a defensemen, the Oilers would be stupid to pass on the potential elite center in Monahan.


8th Overall - Buffalo Sabres
D, Rasmus Ristolainen - 6'3", 201 - RH

The Sabres are tempted to select Nurse, but like the better hockey IQ and offensive potential in Ristolainen.


9th Overall - New Jersey Devils
LW, Hunter Shinkaruk - 5'10", 181 - LH

Also tempted to take Nurse, the Devils realize they have a very deep pool of defensive prospects and decide to go all offense with the selection of Hunter Shinkaruk.


10th Overall - Dallas Stars
C, Max Domi - 5'9", 197 - LH

Having a deep prospect pool in all positions, the Stars are an interesting team in this years draft. One thing their pool lacks is elite, blue chip prospects, and that's exactly what they get in Max Domi, who'd easily be a top 5 pick if he's 3 inches taller.


11th Overall - Philadelphia Flyers
D, Darnell Nurse - 6'4", 185 - LH

Extremely surprised he's dropped to them, Nurse's fall ends right in the laps of the perfect team for him. With an uncle who played for the Eagles, and already having the Broadstreet Bully attitude, the Flyers can't help but select the big, nasty defenseman.


12th Overall - Phoenix Coyotes
C, Bo Horvat - 6'0", 206 - LH

The Yotes could use help in all forward positions of their prospect pool and opt for the safe, well rounded Horvat.


13th Overall - Winnipeg Jets
RW, Anthony Mantha - 6'4", 190 - LH

A bit of a draft day riser, the Jets select the tremendous goal scorer Anthony Mantha.


14th Overall - Columbus Blue Jackets
C, Alexander Wennberg - 6'1", 174 - LH

With the first of three picks in the 1st round, the Blue Jackets select the potential top line center, Alexander Wennberg.


15th Overall - New York Islanders
LW, Valentin Zykov - 6'0", 208 - RH

Lacking prospect depth on the wings, the Isles select the high scoring sniper from the Q in Valentin Zykov.

16th Overall - Buffalo Sabres
D, Nikita Zadorov - 6'4", 200 - LH

The Sabres select another defensemen, and take the raw, hulking Russian.


17th Overall - Ottawa Senators
RW, Curtis Lazar - 6'0", 190 - RH

The Sens need more grit and nastiness, and select the highly skilled, but tough Oil King.


18th Overall - Detroit Red Wings
LW, André Burakovsky, 6'1", 176 - LH

The Wings are quite fond of Europeans, Swedes in particular, and go for the very high risk/reward pick in Burakovsky. Has the potential to be an elite top line scorer, but it's that or bust. The Wings are willing to take the chance.


19th Overall - Columbus Blue Jackets
RW, Ryan Hartman - 5'11", 185 - RH

The Jackets are building a core of physical character players with skill, and select Ryan Hartman, the gritty, physical, tough power forward in the Mike Richards mold.


20th Overall - San Jose Sharks
D, Ryan Pulock - 6'0", 211 - RH

As the third defensemen to unexpectedly fall, Ryan Pulock lands right into the lap of San Jose. Highly skilled and with an absolute rocket of a shot, the Sharks hope they found the future replacement for Boyle.


21st Overall - Toronto Maple Leafs
G, Zach Fucale - 6'1", 181 - LH

The Leafs surprise many, and select goaltender Zach Fucale. While they do have Reimer and recently traded for Bernier, the Leafs have zero quality goalie prospects, and opt for the sensational Moosehead.


22nd Overall - Calgary Flames
LW, Kerby Rychel - 6'1", 205 - LH

Calgary, yet again, sticks to the board and selects the scoring power forward Rychel.


23rd Overall - Washington Capitals
D, Samuel Morin - 6'6", 202 - LH

The Caps lack very few decent defensemen in their prospect pool and select the massive future shutdown D-man whose stock has risen dramatically.


24th Overall - Vancouver Canucks
D, Josh Morrisey - 6'0", 186 - LH

With an odd reoccurring theme of falling defensemen, the Canucks are ecstatic the tremendously offensively skilled blue liner falls into their laps.


25th Overall - Montreal Canadiens
LW, Adam Erne - 6'0", 210 - LH

A team lacking grit and toughness, the Habs select the physical, two way forward.


26th Overall - Anaheim Ducks
C, Frederick Gauthier - 6'3", 193 - LH

Major draft day faller, the Ducks are happy to select the hulking, two way center Gauthier.


27th Overall - Columbus Blue Jackets
C, JT Compher - 6'0", 165 - LH

Sticking to the theme of gritty character forwards with offensive skill, the Jackets select the physical two way scorer, JT Compher.


28th Overall - Calgary Flames
LW, Morgan Klimchuk - 5'11", 180 - LH

The Flames round out their 1st Round by selecting scoring winger Morgan Klimchuk


29th Overall - Dallas Stars
C, Nicolas Petan - 5'8", 165 - LH

The Dallas Stars go for another home run in the 1st Round and select small but feisty high scoring center Nicolas Petan.


30th Overall - Chicago Blackhawks
D, Robert Hägg - 6'2", 193 - LH

This late in the 1st Round, the Hawks feel they can take a risk, and select the smooth skating, two way Swede defenseman Robert Hägg.


I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts! Constructive criticism, comments, ideas, etc. is all welcome! Hope you enjoyed!

I don't think Buffalo goes D/D, at 16 if the board goes that way I'd take Erne,Rychel or even maybe Burakovsky.

This mock doesn't suck.


Only comments I think Gauthier is more likely to rise than fall, and I wonder about Dallas drafting the two smallest players in the 1st. Pulock going right before the Leafs is just plain cruel

Looks damn good for Dallas. Should be able to get at least one top 6 center between those two.

The thing is though, if he reaches his potential, the Wings have an elite player on their hands. It could be the steal of the draft. Or the Hugh Jessiman of the draft. I think it's worth the risk.

Thanks a lot!

From what I've seen though, it seems Vancouver fans would be ecstatic with Morrisey.

So, after looking back at my mock, I realize I didn't do all that horribly. My correct picks were:

1. Colorado - Nathan MacKinnon
2. Florida - Aleksander Barkov
3. Tampa Bay - Jonathan Drouin
4. Nashville - Seth Jones
8. Buffalo - Rasmus Ristolainen
14. Columbus - Alexander Wennberg
16. Buffalo - Nikita Zadorov
17. Ottawa - Curtis Lazar
28. Calgary - Morgan Klimchuk

9/30 isn't too bad! Haha!

Plus at number 19 you picked a guy who fought the actual pick in the Top Prospects Game. You should get half a point for that
