Pittsburgh selects Emil Oksanen.

Whoever wants to auto for Washington as yoteshot seems to still be away, can do so.

I wonder if he's related to an Oksanen that I know from Espoo.

Per CSS, Washington selects Robbie Stucker from St. Thomas Academy.

With Colorado's final pick in the NHL entry draft, we select Igor Shyvyrov.

Passed over last year, saw some games in the KHL this year. Carved up the MHL. He's got good size, responsible center, good on faceoffs, oozes offensive skill, needs some work on his edges.

With their final pick in the 2017 NHL Draft the Vancouver Canucks select C Linus Ölund from Brynäs IF of the SHL.


Linus is an overager currently playing very well in the SHL. We like his skillset and feel there is some offensive upside with him.

Alright, so I just got back

I will be able to make the Caps last pick (hopefully I have a few guys left on my list), I was ready to pick someone with the 6th pick last night, but it wasn't my turn yet when I went to bed yesterday. Anyways, doesn't really matter at this point I guess.

You can still change it if you want.

Yeah, if you wanna change the pick retroactively, you can, just don't take anyone picked after so that we don't have to wait for that again.

I sort of hate you right now. I didn't think anyone was going near them at this point.

Our lists seem eerily similar this year.

I know right? When I saw where those two guys were ranked (not at all anymore in Shvyryov's case) I tucked them right into my 7th round sleeper pick pile. I get that Oksanen aborting mission on the USHL/NCAA to play against men in Mestis concerns some, but he's a really good player with decent size and skill who's focused on improving. Has torched every development level over there on the way up, even when making the jumps as a double under-ager, and he shows up in big games. Shvyryov obviously has some Russian factor going on, and people in places might know more about his long term NA pro aspirations than we do, but he's totally one of those centres that makes everyone around him better. Yes, he wipes out a lot doing his thing (I think that's where the edge work/balance thing comes from), but I think he's twice the player that most of the last 50-100 or so guys we've picked are.

The Vegas Golden Knights are proud to select with the 188th Overall Selection in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, forward IVAN KOZLOV.



"Ivan is a strong winger who likes to use his strength to protect the puck. We feel there are a lot of things to work on in his game, but he's got an absolutely jaw-dropping release. It's NHL level. His production was very good for his position on the team and we expect explosive numbers next season."

That Oksanen pick is an example of why this mock draft idea is awesome, and a major reason why it sucked that this year we had so many autos.

I can change?

Alright then, the Capitals select, from Niagara in the OHL, goaltender Stephen Dhillon.

"We like his stats and he put up pretty solid numbers on a poor team. He's a long term project and an overager, but by only a day so he's still 18."

You guys are killing me.

On record last year saying he should have been drafted. Numbers watchers might ask "didn't he kind of plateau? 10 more points isn't much." but I think he improved more than whatever percent that represents in terms of overall play... so I will be fairly shocked if he doesn't go this year, though I expect plenty of mocks to gloss over him.

With the pick #190, Philadelphia selects, from the Östersunds in the Division1, the defenseman Calle Sjalin.



Sjalin was considered one of the top swedish defenseman in his draft class as a 16 years old. Missing the entire following year consequently made him fell off the radar. This season Sjalin performed very well against men in Division1, additionally, considering the fact that he is among the youngest draft eligible player, he has lot of time of development ahead of him, if things turn out for the best this 7th rounder might potentially become a big pay off for us.

Philadelphia picks:
1st:#2 Nolan Patrick, C, 6'3", OHL
2nd:#44 Josh Norris, C, 6'1", USDP
3rd:#75 Max Gildon, D, 6'3", USDP
3rd:#81 Jack Studnicka, C, 6'1", OHL
4th:#106 Stuart Skinner, G, 6'4", WHL
4th:#107 MaCauley Carson, LW, 6'1", OHL
4th:#108 Denis Smirnov, LW, 5'10", NCAA
5th: #137 Pavel Shen, C, 6'1", MHL
6th: #167 Liam Hawel, C, 6'5", OHL
7th: #190 Calle Sjalin D, 6'1", Division1

Since the beginning Sjalin, Emil Oksanen and Santeri Virtanen were the 3 intriguing wild card prospects with potential high upside that people might miss on I was hopping to snatch with my 7th rounders. The other two were gone, I am happy Sjalin was still there, I wanted a D at this point to equilibrate things out too.

With the 191st overall pick Buffalo selects forward Shawn Boudrias from Gatineau of the QMJHL.


"Shawn is a big boy who is still learning to use his size and developing the strength/energy required to have the impact a player with his size/skill combo should. Good speed, good hands, and willing to go to all the tough areas on the ice, but not as consistently tough/intense as you'd perhaps expect given his natural advantages. After a bit of a disappointing start to the season, he picked things up after landing in a larger role with more minutes via midseason trade, and we think he'll just continue to get better."

edit: Detroit PM'd

I think that concludes the draft for

1 (8) F Casey Mittelstadt
2 (37) D Henri Jokiharju
2 (58) G U.-P. Luukkonen
3 (68) F Scott Reedy
3 (93) D Dmitri Samorukov
4 (99) F Joel Teasdale
6 (161) F Samuel Bucek
7 (191) F Shawn Boudrias

----------------------------------

Gotta say, still LOTS of names I'd be calling if there were more rounds, including some that are pretty high up on "to watch" lists, overagers re-entering the draft, and others that are perhaps underrated in European leagues. Glad I had as many trips to the podium as I did, I guess. Cheers for all those who made/make it to the end, and shout-outs to CC and WTK in particular for their work.
