barongoalie's 2018 NHL Mock Draft Picks - Last updated: 06-21-2018

Rnd. ▴ Pick   Team Player Pos. School
1 1Buffalo BuffaloRasmus Dahlin D Frölunda HC
barongoalie's comments: No Brainer here, Dahlin goes to the Sabres.
1 2Carolina CarolinaAndrei Svechnikov RW Barrie
barongoalie's comments: The Hurricanes get what they have been needing for YEARS. A big scoring winger. The Canes could really build around Svechnikov. All he does is score goals.
1 3Montreal MontrealFilip Zadina RW Halifax
barongoalie's comments: Montreal seriously considers taking the French Canadian right handed defender here. But opt to go with the better overall player in Zadina.
1 4Ottawa OttawaEvan Bouchard D London
barongoalie's comments: With Karlsson likely headed out of town, the Senators pick up an offensive defenceman that they hope they can rebuild their franchise around.
1 5Arizona ArizonaBrady Tkachuk LW Boston University
barongoalie's comments: This is not the type of player the Coyotes normally select, and I would like to say that they does the norm here and pick a skilled guy. But I think they pounce on Tkachuk with this selection.
1 6Detroit DetroitNoah Dobson D Acadie-Bathurst
barongoalie's comments: The Red Wings Jump at the chance to take big right handed d-man. Dobson could be a big time steal of a pick.
1 7Vancouver VancouverOliver Wahlstrom LW Shattuck-St. Marys School
barongoalie's comments: Vancouver go into the draft hoping one of the big forwards of the draft slides to their selection at Number 7. They are happy to see that Wahlstrom is still available, and they make him a Canuck
1 8Chicago ChicagoQuinton Hughes D Michigan
barongoalie's comments: The Blackhawks go after the most skilled player available. Enter: Hughes
1 9NY Rangers NY RangersJesperi Kotkaniemi C Assat Pori
barongoalie's comments: The Rangers have had some luck drafting skilled European players of late. And dip into that pool again to take Kotkaniemi
1 10Edmonton EdmontonAdam Boqvist D Brynäs IF
barongoalie's comments: I don't see how Edmonton can pass on an offensive right handed D here, given what they paid for to get Adam Larsson. They go with Boqvist.
1 11NY Islanders NY IslandersTy Smith D Spokane
barongoalie's comments: Islanders take no chances with back to back picks. With their first, they go with the skilled Canadian d-man in Ty Smith.
1 12NY Islanders NY IslandersJoe Veleno C Drummondville
barongoalie's comments: The second in a good centre option with Joe Veleno. Isle fans would be very happy with these two.
1 13Dallas DallasRasmus Kupari C Karpat Oulu
barongoalie's comments: European centre with some significant upside. The Stars go with the Finn.
1 14Philadelphia PhiladelphiaBode Wilde D US-Under-18
barongoalie's comments: Underated defenceman in the draft? Count the Flyers as interested.
1 15Florida FloridaRyan Merkley D Guelph
barongoalie's comments: Florida love to go off the board. They need some defence in the system, and go with a skilled one.
1 16Colorado ColoradoJoel Farabee LW USNTDP
barongoalie's comments: The Avalanche have not picked a CHL player in the first round in 3 drafts. They continue that trend here with Farabee.
1 17New Jersey New JerseyJared McIssac D Halifax
barongoalie's comments: The Devils seem to have the forward situation under control for now. They decide to shore up the blueline with a safe defender pick.
1 18Columbus ColumbusIsac Lundeström C Luleå HF
barongoalie's comments: Columbus go with a Swedish forward who fits well in their organization. Talented player with a lot of room to grow.
1 19Philadelphia PhiladelphiaAkil Thomas C Niagara
barongoalie's comments: Right Handed Centre who can put up points.
1 20Los Angeles Los AngelesMartin Kaut RW Pardubice
barongoalie's comments: Kaut simply put has the highest potential upside of the remaining players in the draft, and LA need offence. Kaut could go much higher in this draft. This is a bit of a sleeper pick.
1 21San Jose San JoseBarrett Hayton C Sault Ste. Marie
barongoalie's comments: I don't have Hayton going as high as many drafts predict. I think he'll slide to a playoff team here as a depth centre type of project player.
1 22Ottawa OttawaAlexander Alexeyev D Red Deer
barongoalie's comments: What's that? Pick a forward? K. And by K, I of course mean no. 1 more big defender please!
1 23Anaheim AnaheimDominik Bokk RW Växjö
barongoalie's comments: German player with some playmaking ability.
1 24Minnesota MinnesotaK'Andre Miller D USNTDP
barongoalie's comments: Prototypical large left handed D-man. There are not many like this coming up in the NHL.
1 25Toronto TorontoRasmus Sandin D Sault Ste. Marie
barongoalie's comments: Leafs pick a Greyhound? Highly likely.
1 26NY Rangers NY RangersMattias Samuelsson D Norwood High School
barongoalie's comments: Another big left handed D-man/ He sounds Swedish, but guess what? Amurican.
1 27Chicago ChicagoJett Woo D Moose Jaw
barongoalie's comments: Coolest name in the draft by far. He slides due to an injury plagued season, and a slow end to the year.
1 28NY Rangers NY RangersRyan McLeod C Mississauga
barongoalie's comments: Honestly, a team could love this guy and take him in the top 15. I just don't see it happening.
1 29St. Louis St. LouisGrigori Denisenko LW Yaroslavl
1 30Detroit DetroitAdam Ginning D Linköpings HC
1 31Washington WashingtonNils Lundkvist D Luleå HF
