26. Montreal Canadiens

Farjestad (SHL). Oliver Kylington. 26. player. 152. The Canadiens have had some good picks in the last few years, and I feel like this will be another one. Kylington has been connected to Ottawa in the past, and also for some reason he fell very far in the draft rankings since September. But he has been compared to <strong><a href=. Defense

27. Anaheim Ducks

Center. USA NTDP (USHL). Colin White. 27. player. 105. White didn’t have as impressive numbers in the US as Kyle Connor, but he was still at a point per game in the USA development program. The Ducks may need to beef up with another centre, although right now they could go any direction. White would seem to be a safe pick, which is fine for a team like the Ducks

28. Tampa Bay Lightning (from New York Rangers)

Joel Eriksson Ek. 28. player. 23. Eriksson Ek put up similar point totals to <strong><a href=. Center. Farjestad (SHL)

29. Philadelphia Flyers (from Tampa Bay Lightning)

29. player. 68. The Flyers need some help on defense, and Dunn could be a legitimate answer, instead of someone like <strong><a href=. Defense. Niagara (OHL). Vince Dunn

30. Arizona Coyotes (from Chicago Blackhawks)

Daniel Sprong. 30. player. 121. I think the Coyotes will be willing to take a chance on Sprong, and they should. He’s apparently had “character issues” in the past, but he’s 18 years old so I think he can move past it. Looking at his hockey skills, he should be a much higher pick. He had 68 points last year, and 88 this year with Charlottetown. This would be a smart pick by Arizona.. Right Wing. Charlottetown (QMJHL)

Well there you have it. It took a long time, but there is my mock draft for 2015. What do you think, will I come close on some of them? It’s easy to predict the top 5-10, but after that it’s near impossible. I’ll be checking to see if I get a few right later in the round. If I get lots right, I’m a genius! If it’s the opposite, then you never read this blog at all.
