Dread9119's 2018 NHL Mock Draft Picks - Last updated: 06-17-2018

Rnd. ▴ Pick   Team Player Pos. School
1 1Buffalo BuffaloRasmus Dahlin D Frolunda HC
Dread9119's comments: Slot him into the lineup already!
1 2Carolina CarolinaAndrei Svechnikov RW Barrie
Dread9119's comments: Also a fairly obvious pick. A bigger, stronger version of Kucherov?
1 3Montreal MontrealFilip Zadina RW Halifax
Dread9119's comments: I think the real action starts here Does Montreal go off the board? Maybe they try to trade back with Arizona or Detroit? If they don't Zadina is the obvious pick here at forward. But if someone trades up this spot could be filled by a defenseman.
1 4Ottawa OttawaAdam Boqvist D Brynäs IF
Dread9119's comments: Ottawa takes the guy people are comparing to Erik Karlsson. Elite skater, elite vision and passing, great shot. Is one of the youngest players in the draft so we may have only scratched the surface of what this guy can do in game. One caveat is that he's had two verified concussions.
1 5Arizona ArizonaBrady Tkachuk LW Boston University
Dread9119's comments: The Coyotes fill an organizational need with Tkachuk who has obvious connections to Arizona. Big, truculent forward with decent skating skills. Showed offensive upside at international level. Demon on the forecheck, sees the ice and thinks the game well. Potential future captain.
1 6Detroit DetroitEvan Bouchard D London
Dread9119's comments: Prototypical, multi-tool defenseman the Wings desperately need. Powerful, accurate shot, great first pass, joins the rush and plays in all situations.
1 7Vancouver VancouverQuinton Hughes D Michigan
Dread9119's comments: Tremendous skater, shifty and dangerous at the offensive blueline and on the rush. Sees the ice extremely well and makes tape to tape passes. He has a high hockey IQ. Defensive game should progress as he continues to add strength.
1 8Chicago ChicagoOliver Wahlstrom LW Shattuck-St. Marys School
Dread9119's comments: Chicago gets the best shooter in the draft. His shot is professional level already, he is an excellent skater and at 6'1" 205lbs hes probably NHL ready.
1 9NY Rangers NY RangersNoah Dobson D Acadie-Bathurst
Dread9119's comments: Rangers luck out at nine with Dobson. This guy skates incredibly well for someone who is 6'3". Hes fast and mobile in all four directions. He's also got great footspeed so he reaches top speed quickly. His defensive game is already NHL level and he has maybe the best one timer,for a defenseman, in this draft. The reason he wont play next year is because he needs to put on about twenty pounds.
1 10Edmonton EdmontonTy Smith D Spokane
Dread9119's comments: Edmonton fans may have to wait a few years for him to develop but he has all the skills to be a top four guy in the NHL. I've also read a couple draft reports that say he might be NHL ready: so who knows?
1 11NY Islanders NY IslandersJesperi Kotkaniemi C Assat Pori
Dread9119's comments: Tavares insurance. He played RW this year on his Liiga team but in international play, where he excelled, he was a center. Prototypical center size at 6'2" good but not great skater. Good wrist shot especially in tight. Forechecks well and plays a 200 foot game.
1 12NY Islanders NY IslandersJoel Farabee LW USNTDP
Dread9119's comments: Superior skating and quickness. Hardworking forechecker. Two-hundred foot player with great offensive instincts. May need to work on his shot a little.
1 13Dallas DallasBode Wilde D US-Under-18
Dread9119's comments: Big, smooth skating D with an absolute cannon from the point. Physical in front of the net but needs to work on defensive zone coverage. May eventually be as good as some of the defensemen taken ahead of him.
1 14Philadelphia PhiladelphiaJoe Veleno C Drummondville
Dread9119's comments: Didn't quite live up to some people's expectations after his early exemption. Still a real promising two-way center who, until the rise of Kotkaniemi, was considered the best center in the draft. Elite speed and skating with great vision and passing ability.
1 15Florida FloridaGrigori Denisenko LW Yaroslavl
Dread9119's comments: Quick, agile undersized forward. Really shined in international play. Dangerous and shifty on the rush. Accurate shot. Needs to work on his defensive game and add strength.
