2020 NHL Mock Draft: Final Mock 7 Rounds




Round 4




Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: October 6, 2020.


  1. Tampa Bay Lightning: Roby Jarventine, LW, Ilves (SM Liiga)

    The 6-2 185 lb Roby Jarventie has the playmaking of a passer who generates assists as will. He also has the wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, and slap shot accuracy you want an NHL player to have. He's very gifted offensively. Jarventie needs to improve defensively if he ever wants to crack a top 6 of an NHL lineup. Roby Jarventie is gifted enough offensively to develop into a good third line left winger in the NHL. Even though I got a third round grade on him, some NHL teams will have a second round grade on Roby Jarventie. Jarventie is a huge steal for the Tampa Bay Lightning to start the fourth round because he's the best winger Ilves has had since Roope Hintz who is now on the Dallas Stars.


  2. Ottawa Senators: Ruben Rafkin, D, Windsor Spitfires (OHL)

    The 5-11 190 lb Ruben Rafkin showed some skill on the Windsor Spitfires. Future Considerations has a late second round grade on him. Unlike the other Spitfires that got mocked in the third round despite playing on the third line, Ruben Rafkin played on Windsor's second line anchoring the Spitfires blue line on the second line. Rafkin has a better floor than teammates Jean-Luc Foudy and William Cuylle, even though you could argue those guys have better ceilings.


    Previous Pick: Jaromir Pytlik, C, Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds (OHL)


  3. Calgary Flames: Logan Morrison, C, Hamilton Bulldogs (OHL)

    The Calgary Flames get a third to fifth round prospect in Logan Morrison. Right here in the fourth round is an ideal spot for Hamilton's playmaker who had 23 goals, 22 assists, and 45 points in 59 games.


  4. Los Angeles Kings: Roman Seeley, D, Everett Silvertips (WHL)

    The 5-11 176 lb Roman Seeley is another defender on the Everett Silvetips. Ever since Ryan Murray went second overall back in 2012, Everett seems to get defensemen in spades.



  5. Montreal Canadiens: Simon Knak, RW, Portland Winterhawks (WHL)

    Montreal selects the 6-1 190 lb Simon Knak here. Knak does everything well both offensively and defensively. He doesn't have a strength to his game and needs to improve everywhere.


  6. New Jersey Devils: Pavel Gogolev, RW, Guelph Storm (OHL)

    The 6-1 179 lb Pavel Gogolev began his OHL career with the Peterborough Petes before being traded to the Guelph Storm. Pavel Gogolev is versatile enough to play left wing or right wing. The 20-year-old winger dominated in 2019-2020 with 45 goals, 51 assists, 96 poitns, and a +24 +/- ratio in 63 games this past season. He's a late bloomer, but someone who can make an immediate jump to the AHL and has upside to be an NHL player down the road despite having a fourth round grade.



  7. Buffalo Sabres: Gage Goncalves, LW, Everett Silvertips (WHL)

    The 6-1 170 lb Gage Goncalves is a two-way forward. He's versatile enough to play left wing, center, or right wing with his versatility.


    Gage Goncalves had 33 goals, 38 assists, 71 points, and a +32 +/- ratio in 2019-2020. He'd make a great addition for the Buffalo Sabres at this point in the fourth round.


  8. Minnesota Wild: Bogdan Trineyev, RW, UHC Dynamo Moscow (KHL)

    The Minnesota Wild get the 6-3 176 lb Bogdan Trineyev. Trineyev has a third round grade. Unfortuantely, he has yet to play a KHL game. He looks like he could provide good value in the fourth round though after having 12 goals, 12 assists, and 24 points in the MHL.



  9. Montreal Canadiens: Jack Thompson, D, Sudbury Wolves (OHL)

    The 6-1 172 lb Jack Thompson doubled his point total from 16 to 32. The bad news is he regressed defensively going from having a +14 +/- ratio as a rookie to having a -9 +/- ratio.


    Previous Pick: Ruben Rafkin, D, Windsor Spitfires (OHL)

  10. New York Rangers: Nico Daws, G, Guelph Storm (OHL)

    The 6-4 203 lb Nico Daws finally broke out in 2019-2020 with a 2.48 goals against average and a .924 save percentage in 38 OHL games. The Rangers get a goalie to develop with Henrik Lundqvist not returning to the team. Durability is the only question with Daws because an injury kept him out of the 2020 CHL Prospects game and even the announcers said that Daws would have been the top goalie in that game had he played which says a lot. Daws is now my third best goalie in the 2020 NHL Draft after watching his tape and hearing him speak highly of his family.


    Previous Pick: Dylan Peterson, RW, USNTDP (USHL)


  11. Anaheim Ducks: Brandon Coe, RW, North Bay Batallion (OHL)

    Anaheim gets the best player on the board. The 6-3 185 lb Brandon Coe improved marginally on both offense and defense. He's still a project defensively. However he's the only top 50 North American Skater left on the board when you look at NHL Central Scouting's Top 50 North American Skaters. Bob McKenzie also has an early third round grade on Brandon Coe, so the Ducks are getting excellent value by taking Coe midway through the fourth round.


  12. Florida Panthers: Alex Laferriere, RW, Des Moines Buccaneers (USHL)

    Alex Laferriere is a 5-10 161 lb right winger that displays the skating, agility, speed, playmaking, and stick handling of a future NHL right winger. Alex Laferriere has 9 goals, 17 assists, 28 points, and a -1 +/- in 20 games. Des Moines Buccaneers best prospect could go as early as the second round, but could also go undrafted due to how raw and unpolished he is defensively. Most scouting services have the Harvard committment going in the third round.


    Alex Laferriere can clean up his defensive woes while getting good grades at Harvard. Once he cleans that part of his game up, Florida can sign him from Harvard and find a role for this Ivy League right winger on their back 6.



  13. Toronto Maple Leafs: Samuel Johannesson, D, Rogle BK (Elitserien)

    The 5-11 176 lb Samuel Johannesson had 1 goal, 10 assists, and 11 points in 44 SHL games. Calle Clang did not play in the SHL even though I think he has much greater upside than Johannesson. Johannesson gives the Toronto Maple Leafs a good value pick in the fourth round.


  14. Detroit Red Wings: Dmitri Zlodeyev, C, UHC Dynamo Moscow (KHL)

    The Detroit Red Wings got a great value pick in the fourth round. Dmitri Zlodeyev is a center and team captain on UHC Dynamo Moscow's MHL team. He has enough upside to crack a fourth line in the NHL. Detroit can patiently develop Zlodeyev hoping for the best result.



  15. Pittsburgh Penguins: Tristen Robins, RW, Saskatoon Blades (WHL)

    The 5-10 174 lb Tristen Robins is versatile enough to play left wing, center, or right wing. Tristen Robins is a two-way forward. Robins had 33 goals, 40 assists, and 73 points. Elite Prospects and McKeen's Hockey both had a second round grade on him. Future Considerations had a third round grade on Tristen Robins making him a huge steal in the fourth round.


  16. Montreal Canadiens: Oldrich Cichon, G, Sparta Praha (Extraliga)

    The 6-1 176 lb Oldrich Cichon is the best goalie in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft that nobody in teh media is talking about. He had a 1.64 goals against average and a .954 save percentage in 8 Czech Republic Under 20 Tournament Games. His reflexes and athleticism are incredible. He has 0 Extraliga starts, but displays the upside to develop into a future starting goalie in the NHL.


    Oldrich Cichon would make an ideal successor to Carey Price and backup Jake Allen, who Montreal traded for. I have Cichon ranked ahead of Jan Mysak who most have as the top ranked goalie in the Czech Republic.



  17. Chicago Blackhawks: Drew Commesso, G, USNTDP (USHL)

    Chicago is looking at two goalies as potential successors to their current starter Corey Crawford if they cannot land Yaroslav Askarov. The first goalie, I heard they were profiling was Nico Daws from the Guelph Storm. Drew Commesso is the other goalie. I like Daws a lot more on tape, but Commesso is still available in the fourth round where I expect the goalie run in this years NHL Draft to take place.


    The 6-2 181 lb Drew Commesso had 2.01 goals against average and a .917 save percentage in 11 USHL games. Commesso is going to Boston University where 2017 first round pick Jake Oettinger played goalie. Detroit drafts Drew Commesso here hoping to get Jimmy Howard's successor.


    Previous Pick: Jan Mysak, G, HC Energie Karlovy Vary (Extraliga)

  18. Arizona Coyotes: Jan Mysak, G, HC Energie Karlovy Vary (Extraliga)

    Jan Mysak is a project goalie, in fact I'd say he's a bigger project than Cichon. Most media members and scouting outlets have Mysak as the top ranked goalie behind Yaroslav Askarov. I now have Mysak as the sixth goalie to be drafted in my final 2020 NHL Mock Draft with Yarsolav Askarov, Calle Clang, Nico Daws, Oldrich Cichon, and Drew Commesso as my top five goalies drafted. Mysak could prove to be a steal for a team like the Arizona Coyotes if he slips this far.


    Previous Pick: Joel Blomqvist, G, Oulun Karpat (SM Liiga)


  19. Los Angeles Kings: Noah Ellis, D, Des Moines Buccaneers (USHL)

    The Los Angeles Kings get a blue line prospect with their fourth round pick. The 6-2 192 lb Noah Ellis is ranked 92nd on Future Considerations. He's someone the Blackhawks can draft and stash for the future this late in the fourth round.


  20. Vancouver Canucks: Daniel Baker, D, Medicine Hat Tigers (WHL)

    The 6-4 183 lb Daniel Baker dominated in 2019-2020 with 13 goals, 25 assists, 38 points, and a +38 +/- ratio in 62 games. He showed growth as a two-way defender despite being 19-years-old.



  21. Columbus Blue Jackets: Daniel Torgersson, RW, Frolunda Indians (Elitserien)

    The 6-3 205 lb Daniel Torgersson is versatile enough to play both left wing and right wing. He dominated in the SuperElit league with 44 points, but had 0 points in 6 SHL games. Torgersson could be a great AHL winger on a top line or a fourth line winger in the NHL if he continues to develop.


  22. Carolina Hurricanes: Ryan Francis, RW, Cape Breton Screaming Eagles (QMJHL)

    The 5-9 168 lb Ryan Francis dominated this season with 24 goals, 48 assists, 72 points, and a +27 +/- ratio in 61 QMJHL regular season games. He has a third round grade and is a fantastic value pick for the Carolina Hurricanes this late in the fourth round.



  23. Philadelphia Flyers: Andrew Perrot, D, Owen Sound Attack (OHL)
    The 6-0 201 lb Andrew Perrot had 4 goals, 23 assists, 27 points, and a +16 +/- ratio in 62 games. He's another great prospect for the Philadelphia Flyers to add here to boost their blue line.


    Previous Pick: David Ma, D, Shattuck St. Mary's HS (MN)

  24. Colorado Avalanche: Trevor Kuntar, LW, Youngstown Phantoms (USHL)

    Colorado drafts the 6-0 203 lb Trevor Kuntar. Kuntar is versatile enough to play left wing, center, or right wing with his versatility. Kuntar had 28 goals, 25 assists, and 53 points in 2019-2020. Kuntar struggles defensively and needs to improve his defense.


    Previous Pick: Andrew Perrot, D, Owen Sound Attack (OHL)


  25. Washington Capitals: Evan Vierling, C, Barrie Colts (OHL)

    The 6-0 168 lb Evan Vierling had 10 goals, 34 assists , and 44 points in 2019-2020. Niklas Backstrom will need a successor at some point and this is the best center left on the board in the fourth round with some scouts having a third round grade on him.



  26. St. Louis Blues: Joel Blomqvist, G, Oulun Karpat (SM Liiga)

    The Blues traded Jake Allen to Montreal and will need a goalie to compliment Jordan Binnington. The 6-1 205 lb Joel Blomqvist has great footwork and upper body strength. Joel Blomqvist knows when to be aggressive and when to be calm. He follows the puck having the vision and hockey IQ of a starting goalie.


    He needs to do a better job finding the puck though. Dominated on Oulun Karpat's Under 20 Team, but struggled against pros in the Liiga league in Finland. Blomqvist is a project, but does display the upside to be a starting goalie in the NHL and St. Louis can draft him here in the fourth round to compliment Jordan Binnington at some point down the road.


    Previous Pick: Nico Daws, G, Guelph Storm (OHL)

  27. New Jersey Devils: Anton Johannesson, D, HV71 (Elitserien)

    The 5-9 154 lb Anton Johannesson is considered a third round propsect according to Future Considerations. He has not played a single game in the SHL yet. He's a nice project for the New Jersey Devils with this fourth round pick that they got from the Boston Bruins.



  28. New York Islanders: Theodore Neiderbach, C, Frolunda Indians (Elitserien)

    New York gets a huge steal with Theodore Neiderbach here. The 5-11 172 lb center had 15 goals, 33 assists, and 48 points in the SuperElit, but did not play in any SHL games making him rawer than Torgersson. Elite Prospects has a first round grade on Neiderbach even though he's never played an SHL game. Future Considerations, Craig Button, and Bob McKenzie all have an early third round grade on the Frolunda Indians center. Worst case scenario, the Islanders get an AHL center. Best case scenario, Neiderbach plays up to his potential and develops into a back 6 center in the NHL.


  29. Vegas Golden Knights: Jake Lee, D, Kelowna Rockets (WHL)

    The 6-2 216 lb Jake Lee got traded from the Seattle Thunderbirds to the Kelowna Rockets. Jake Lee had 3 goals, 21 assists, 24 points, and a +8 +/- ratio with the Seattle Thunderbirds in 2018-2019. Jake Lee had 5 goals, 25 assists, 30 points, and a +7 +/- ratio in 60 games with the Kelowna Rockets.


    Vegas drafts Jake Lee here. Worst case scenario you get an AHL player. Best case scenario you can develop Lee into a future blue line prospect on the Vegas Golden Knights in five years.



  30. Dallas Stars: Ben Meehan, D, Cedar Rapids RoughRiders (USHL)

    The 6-0 190 lb Ben Meehan gives Dallas a future defender on the blue line. You can let him play in the NCAA, then bring him up to the Dallas Stars, and maybe develop Meehan into a third line defensemen on the Dallas Stars blue line at some point down the road. He was a first line defenseman and a guy that anchored the blue line on the RoughRiders power play. Injuries cause this first line prospect to fall to the Dallas Stars where they get a steal with their first pick since the first round.


  31. Tampa Bay Lightning: Ian Moore, D, St. Mark's HS (MA)

    The 6-3 165 lb Ian Moore is my favorite HS prospect in this years NHL Draft. His 12 goals, 34 assists, and 46 points in 28 High School games is just impressive. Imagine how excited Moore will be if he gets picked by the Stanley Cup Champions on draft day.


    Previous Pick: Trevor Kuntar, LW, Youngstown Phantoms (USHL)
