My Last Minute 2015 NHL Mock Draft: Top 20 Picks

3 of 4

11. Florida Panthers

87. A plethora of big forwards are available at this point, with Zacha and Rantanen highlighting the list. Florida opts for Zacha who joins a group in Florida who is very strong (and big) up front. Look for him to play alongside Nick Bjugstad in a few years.. Center. Sarnia (OHL). Pavel Zacha. 11. player

12. Dallas Stars

119. The Dallas Stars need some help on defence, and so they go off the board a little bit to pick the undersized, but speedy Jeremy Roy from the QMJHL. He projects nicely into their system as a potential top 4 defender in the near future. Defense. Sherbrooke (QMJHL). Jeremy Roy. 12. player

13. Los Angeles Kings

Right Wing. Ottawa (OHL). Travis Konecny. 13. player. 67. Konency seems to be an almost perfect fit for the Kings. They are able to select a high end forward after missing the playoffs. Konecny projects to play on the wing at the NHL level and with some moves in the Kings organization expected to be made, he’s a good piece for the future.

14. Boston Bruins

player. 70. A bruising forward from the QMJHL, Meier stepped up this year by scoring 90 points alongside Winnipeg Jets selection, Nikolaj Ehlers.. Right Wing. Halifax (QMJHL). Timo Meier. 14

15. Calgary Flames

Youngstown (USHL). Kyle Connor. 15. player. 112. Continuing with the theme of drafting reliable centermen, the Calgary Flames cannot pass on the reliable game of Kyle Connor from the USHL. Of course, Connor joins Sam Bennett and Sean Monahan as Flames picks who have had early impacts at the NHL level.. Left Wing/Center
