2015 NHL Mock Draft: Final Mock 7 Rounds

Round 4

Posted By: Chris Ransom Last Updated: June, 26, 2015

  1. Buffalo Sabres: Austin Wagner, LW, Regina Pats (WHL)

    One can make a case that Austin Wagner should have gone a round earlier. Buffalo adds him with this pick.

  2. Carolina Hurricanes: Jeremy Lauzon, D, Rouyn-Noranda Huskies (QMJHL)

    Carolina has yet to draft a defenseman. The Hurricanes finally address that need in the fourth round. Jeremy Lauzon posted 88 points in 60 games. Lauzon weighs 6-2 194 lbs and looks like one of the emerging risers in the 2015 NHL Draft.

  3. St. Louis Blues: Mitchell Stephens, C, Saginaw Spirit (OHL)

    Mitchell Stephens is the only skater from the CHL prospects game still available. The Blues take him here as a developmental player.

  4. Toronto Maple Leafs: David Kase, C, Pirati Chomutov (Extraliga)

    Toronto takes the best player available. David Kase is the best player available in the fourth round.

  5. Carolina Hurricanes: Brendan Guhle, D, Prince Albert Raiders (WHL)

    I mocked Brendan Guhle to Carolina with the 93rd pick in my last 2015 NHL Mock Draft. Carolina gets him at 96 here.

  6. New Jersey Devils: Chaz Reddekopp, D, Victoria Royals (WHL)

    Chaz Reddekopp is 6-3 218 lbs. A defenseman with his size might be an asset in New Jersey.

    There are 3 things that give Reddekopp a chance of cracking an NHL roster. His imposing size, his 21 points where he hit blackjack in the WHL, and his +12 +/- ratio.

    Chaz Reddekopp is one of the best defenseman left in this years draft. One scouting service graded him as the 97th best player with two other scouting services listing him at 89 near the end of the third round and 122 with the first pick in the fith round. This is an excellent spot for Reddekopp.

    Previous Pick: Casey Fitzgerald, D, United States National Team Developmental Program

  7. Philadelphia Flyers: Anthony Richard, C, Val-d'Or Foreurs (QMJHL)

    Anthony Richard is a project that will probably reach his potential once he gets to the AHL. You are looking at a front line center in the AHL or a back end center on lines 3 or 4 as a back 6 player in the NHL.

    Richard recorded 52 points in 2013-2014. This season he posted 91 points in 2014-2015.

  8. Philadelphia Flyers: Connor Hobbs, D, Medicine Hat Tigers (WHL)

    Philadelphia has enough defenseman. The Flyers decide to add one more because Connor Hobbs provides too much value here.

  9. Nashville Predators: Alex Barre-Boulet, C, Drummondville Voltigeurs (QMJHL)

    Nashville gets a center for depth. Alex Barre-Boulet posted 51 points in 68 games. His lack of size makes him an offensive player only.

  10. Colorado Avalanche: Tyler Soy, C, Victoria Royals (WHL)

    Tyler Soy is a two way forward that can play left wing or right wing along with center. Soy can give Colorado a line 4 center. At the very worst he will be a line 1 center on the San Antonio Rampage in a few seasons.

  11. Florida Panthers: Adam Marsh, LW, Saint John Sea Dogs (QMJHL)

    Florida adds a left winger. Adam Marsh is too good to pass on at this point.

  12. Dallas Stars: Caleb Jones, D, United States National Team Developmental Program (USHL)

    Caleb Jones is the younger brother of Seth Jones. Caleb played for Dallas on the Dallas Stars Under 16 Bantam team. Now he gets drafted by a Dallas Stars team that lacks any defensive identity what so ever. Sure they may got a solid first line with Alex Goligoski and Trevor Daily. Sure they got Jamie Oleksiak and Julius Honka in their prospects pool. At the same time, more depth on defense is needed in Dallas.

    Previous Pick: J.C. Beaudin, RW, Rouyn-Noranda Huskies

  13. Los Angeles Kings: Casey Fitzgerald, D, United States National Team Developmental Program (USHL)

    Casey Fitzgerald can be just as effective as Caleb Jones. The Kings take Fitzgerald here with Jones off the board.

    Previous Pick: Tyler Brown, D, Moose Jaw Warriors

  14. Boston Bruins: David Cotton, C, Cushing HS (MA)

    David Cotton is the top high school skater from the United States in the 2015 NHL Draft. Cotton had 69 points in 33 games. The Bruins take a local player here.

  15. San Jose Sharks: John Marino, D, South Shore Kings (USPHL)

    John Marino is the top prospect from the USPHL. He'd make a good AHL player on the Sharks new AHL expansion team now known as the San Jose Barracuda after previously being the Worcester Sharks.

  16. Toronto Maple Leafs: Brett McKenzie, C, North Bay Battalion (OHL)

    Brett McKenzie is the best player available. I think it would smart for Toronto to take him here.

  17. Winnipeg Jets: Dmytro Timashov, LW, Quebec Remparts (QMJHL)

    Dmytro Timashov sounds like a Russian name. Timashov is actually a native from Sweden. The versatile winger has the versatility to play left wing or right wing. Timashov is the only North American skater that is listed as a third round pick on Central Scouting's North American player rankings. After this point in the draft, teams will have to take a chance with the remaining players in the draft hoping to get a future NHL talent.

  18. Ottawa Senators: Tyler Brown, D, Moose Jaw Warriors (WHL)

    Ottawa does not need Tyler Brown here. They do have the luxury of taking the best player available and it's hard to argue against Tyler Brown at this point.

    Previous Pick: Chaz Reddekopp, D, Victoria Royals

  19. Detroit Red Wings: Joseph Cecconi, D, Muskegon Lumberjacks (USHL)

    Joseph Cecconi is the top player on the board. Cecconi goes to Detroit at this spot giving the Red Wings another defensive prospect.

  20. Minnesota Wild: Filip Ahl, LW, HV71 (Elitserien)

    Vancouver finally addresses left wing. The Wild get Filip Ahl with this selection.

  21. New York Islanders: Troy Murray, D, Kootenay Ice (WHL)

    Troy Murray is a good addition here. The Islanders are already loaded at defense. Murray would be a good addition to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in the AHL though.

  22. Washington Capitals: Jonas Siegenthaler, D, ZSC Lions (National League A)

    The Washington Capitals really don't need defense. I just feel like Jonas Siegenthaler is too good to pass on at this point.

  23. Vancouver Canucks: Jesse Gabriel, LW, Brandon Wheat Kings (WHL)

    Vancouver finally addresses left wing. The Canucks get Jesse Gabriel with this selection.

  24. Nashville Predators: Brendan Warren, LW, United States National Team Developmental Program (USHL)

    Nashville gets another left winger. Brendan Warren is steal in the fourth round. Warren may have best wrist shot on Team USA in the USHL which says a lot.

  25. St. Louis Blues: Radovan Bondra, LW, H.C. Kosice (Slovakia)

    Radovan Bondra is a steal here. He may not be Peter Bondra's kid, but he has imposing size at 6-5 218 lbs.

  26. Edmonton Oilers: Tyson Baille, C, Kelowna Rockets (WHL)

    Edmonton drafts another center. Tyson Baille is a good value pick at this spot.

  27. Tampa Bay Lightning: Callahan Burke, C, Cedar Rapids RoughRiders (USHL)

    Callahan Burke had 40 points in 2014-2015. Great value pick by the Lightning at the end of the fourth round.

  28. New York Rangers: Felix Sandstrom, G, Brynas I.F. (Elitserien)

    Felix Sandstrom had a 1.09 GAA and a .963 save percentage in 2 games with Brynas I.F. Before that he posted a 2.63 GAA and a .907 save percentage on the Brynas IF Under 18 Team.

    Henrik Lundqvist is the NHL's best goalie. That doesn't mean you shouldn't look at a developmental goalie in the fourth round. Felix Sandstrom would be an ideal candidate to fill that role at this spot.

  29. Tampa Bay Lightning: Kevin Stenlund, C, HV71 (Elitserien)

    Tampa Bay goes for Kevin Stenlund here. Stenlund weighs 6-3 205 lbs and has the versatility to play left wing, center, or right wing despite only having one goal in 17 games. Stenlund dos an awesom job winning face offs which is why his stock improved from a fifth to fourth round pick despite the lack of production.

  30. Chicago Blackhawks: Dennis Gilbert, D, Chicago Steel (USHL)

    Dennis Gilbert could go anywhere between the second and the fourth round. I cannot see Gilbert falling past this pick with the Blackhawks taking the hometown skater.
