2019 NHL MOCK DRAFT

SCOUTS BELIEVE THIS IS A DEEP DRAFT, WHICH MEANS SEVERAL ORGANIZATIONS SHOULD ADD A SIGNIFICANT PIECE IN THE FIRST ROUND. HERE’S HOW WE SEE IT PLAYING OUT.

(NOTE: DRAFT ORDER SUBJECT TO CHANGE).

1 Kaapo Kakko, RW, TPS (Finland)

GM Ray Shero’s draft history suggests he prefers centers over wings, but Kakko is a unique package who creates offense any way he wa

2 Jack Hughes, C, USNTDP

Ultra-skilled offensive weapon who could mature into a perennial top-10 scorer.

3 Alex Turcotte, C, USNTDP

Don’t worry about his injury-plagued season. Turcotte plays with blinding speed, elite hockey sense and a willingness to engage physically. A potential replacement for Jonathan Toews.

4 Dylan Cozens, C, Lethbridge (WHL)

A big (6-foot-3), strong center who plays with breakaway speed but does his best work in heavy trafic.

5 Bowen Byram, D, Vancouver (WHL)

Appears to be the best offensive defenseman in the class, but still has a lot to learn defensively. No one better to learn from (and eventually replace) than Drew Doughty

6 Cole Caufield, RW, USNTDP

There’s no better goal scorer in this class than the diminutive (5- foot-7) winger. That size might scare some, but this kid is a born sniper, with a variety of release points, uncanny instincts and a willingness to drive the net. Should be a hobby beast.

7 Trevor Zegras, C, USNTDP

What Zegras lacks in size (6-foot) he makes up with a willingness to muck it up down low and in the corners. More of a playmaker than a inisher. Has irst line potential.

8 Philip Broberg, D, AIK (Sweden)

More than one scout has told me this smooth skating, 6-foot-3 Swede could be the best defender in his class. New GM Ken Holland understands the value of a smart, mobile blueliner who can dictate on offense and is reliable in his own end.

9 Kirby Dach, C, Saskatoon (WHL)

With Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler nearing the end, the Ducks need to add size and strength in the middle. At 6-foot-4, 198 pounds, Dach is a difference maker with highend playmaking skills and a growing physical game.

10 Victor Söderström, D, Brynas IF (Sweden)

Söderström would give them a prototypical modern defenseman on a fast development track. He spent last season playing against men in the SHL where he dazzled with a speedy, two-way game.

11 Matthew Boldy, RW, USNTDP

Philly needs to add some D, but Boldy is the best player available. A versatile winger who can play up and down the lineup, blessed with high-end hockey sense, a heavy shot and quick release.
