Posted By: Chris Ransom Last Updated: June 25, 2016.


  1. Toronto Maple Leafs: Jonathan Walker, D, Victoria Royals (WHL) C Grade

    Jonathan Walker looks like a future Marlie. I'm not certain about his chances of making the Maple Leafs.


  2. Edmonton Oilers: Aapeli Rasanen, C, Tappara (SM Liiga) A+ Grade

    Aapeli Rasanen will be the line 1 center on the Oilers AHL team in the future. For now this project will remain a developmental player who could arrive in the AHL sooner rather than later. I had Rasanen graded out as a fourth round pick so this is another A+ grade by the Oilers.


  3. Vancouver Canucks: Jakob Stukel, LW, Calgary Hitmen (WHL) C Grade

    Jakob Stukel is an okay skater. Vancouver got a future winger for the Utica Comets in the NHL with this pick.


  4. Columbus Blue Jackets: Peter Thome, G, Arberdeen Wings (NAHL) D Grade

    Peter Thome was solid in the North American Hockey League. This still feels like quite the reach. I'm giving Columbus a D grade for taking Thome.



  5. Calgary Flames: Eetu Tuulola, RW, HPK (SM Liiga) A+ Grade

    Calgary grabs a winger for depth. Eetu Tuulola has the versatility to play left wing and right wing in the NHL.


  6. Winnipeg Jets: Mikhail Berdin, G, Sevrstal Cherepovets (KHL) D Grade

    This is the first pick I've really disliked. The Jets have 3 goalies competing for one starting NHL spot. Their goalie competition is that tight. Berdin is a guy the Jets can develop into a future AHL goalie.


  7. Arizona Coyotes: Patrick Kudla, D, Oakville Rangers (OJHL) D+ Grade

    Patrick Kudla was another reach. Players from the OJHL rarely make the AHL, and Kudla will be lucky if he can make the Coyotes AHL team.


  8. Buffalo Sabres: Brandon Hagel, LW, Red Deer Rebels (WHL) A+ Grade

    The Sabres take the best player available. At this point that player is Brandon Hagel of the Red Deer Rebels.



  9. Montreal Canadiens: Michael Pezzetta, C, Sudbury Wolves (OHL) B Grade

    Michael Pezzetta is a solid addition. I think he could develop into a line 4 center on Montreal if they are patient enough with him.


  10. Colorado Avalanche: Nathan Clurman, D, Culver Academy HS (IN) D Grade

    Colorado reached for Clurman. I'm giving them a D grade though since they need defense.


  11. New Jersey Devils: Jesper Bratt, LW, AIK IF (Elitserien) B Grade

    Jesper Bratt is a solid pick. I think he can be a star on the Albany Devils in the AHL.


  12. Ottawa Senators: Markus Nurmi, RW, TPS (SM Liiga) A+ Grade

    Markus Nurmi is an excellent pick. Markus Nurmi has the versatility to play both left wing and right wing in the NHL. Nurmi could be an instant impact player on the Binghamton Senators in the AHL and was a fifth round prospect.



  13. Carolina Hurricanes: Noah Carroll, D, Guelph Storm (OHL) A+ Grade

    Carolina is already loaded with defensemen. Noah Carroll is another prospect the Canes can add to their system.


  14. Boston Bruins: Oskar Steen, C, Farjestads B.K. (Elitserien) A+ Grade

    Oskar Steen would be a good playmaker to add for depth. He got to learn behind Joel Ek Eriksson as a line 2 center on Farjestads B.K.


  15. Ottawa Senators: Matthew Phillips, C, Victoria Royals (WHL) A+ Grade

    Matthew Phillips is undersized at 5-7 161 lbs. Phillips had 37 goals, 39 assists, and 76 points in 72 games with a +11 +/- ratio. Phillips had 5 goals, 3 assists, and 8 points in 13 2016 WHL Playoff games. Phillips is arguably the best WHL prospect when it comes to winning face offs against opponents despite being 5-7 161 lbs.



  16. Detroit Red Wings: Filip Larsson, G, Djurgardens I.F. (Allsvenskan) C Grade

    Filip Larsson may be a future starter on the Grand Rapids Griffins in the AHL. I don't see him starting on the Red Wings, but this is a solid pick in the sixth round.


  17. Nashville Predators: Konstantin Volkov, G, SKA Saint Petersburg (KHL) C Grade

    Konstanin Volkov sounds like an awesome name. He may be a project, but my gut tells me he may work out with Nashville.


  18. Philadelphia Flyers: Tanner Laczynski, C, Lincoln Stars (USHL) A+ Grade

    Tanner Laczynski is going to Ohio State in 2016. He'd was a good addition in the fourth round and a remarkable addition at this point in the sixth round.


  19. New York Islanders: Collin Adams, LW, Muskegon Lumberjacks (USHL) B Grade

    Collin Adams looks like a line 3 left winger on the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at this point. He could develop into a line 3 left winger in the NHL, but the Islanders won't need him there for a while, but that's Adams ceiling when you measure his potential.


  20. New York Rangers: Gabriel Fontaine, C, Rouyn-Noranda Huskies (QMJHL) B Grade

    Gabriel Fontaine had 47 points as a line 3 center on the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies who won the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 2015-2016. The 6-1 187 lb Fontaine struggled with the Sherbrooke Phoenix.



  21. Philadelphia Flyers: Anthony Salintri, C, Sarnia Sting (OHL) A+ Grade

    Philadelphia grabs Anthony Salintri. Sarnia's center can play all 3 forward positions and has extremely good versatility at 5-11 180 lbs. Salintri looks like an AHL player at best after having 17 goals, 13 assists, and 30 points in 2015-2016.


  22. Chicago Blackhawks: Blake Hillman, D, Denver B Grade

    Blake Hillman was a solid addition. When he's done with the Denver Pioneers he can go to the Rockford IceHogs in the AHL and develop from there.


  23. New York Rangers: Tyler Wall, G, Leamington Flyers (GOJHL) D Grade

    Tyler Wall feels like a reach here. He will be lucky if he ends up starting on the Hartford Wolfpack in the AHL.




  24. Florida Panthers: Maxim Mamin, C, CSKA Moscow (KHL) C Grade

    Maxim Mamin is a 6-8 year project when it comes to him developing into a line 1 center in the NHL. You are looking at a guy who is a line 4 AHL player right now and has line 2 NHL ability in five years from now.


  25. Dallas Stars: Jakob Stenqvist, D, Modo Hockey (Elitserien) B Grade

    Jakob Stenqvist could be a solid defender. Dallas has to be patient with him though.



  26. Washington Capitals: Chase Priskie, D, Quinnipac B Grade

    Chase Priskie did well for the Salmon Arm Silverbacks in the BCHL before going to Quinnipac. Priskie is a great pick here and should develop into a future Hershey Bear on their blue line.


  27. Tampa Bay Lightning: Oleg Sosunov, D, Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg (KHL) C Grade

    Oleg Sosunov is a solid pick here. Tampa Bay may get another late round gem with this pick.


  28. Toronto Maple Leafs: Nicolas Mattinen, D, London Knights (OHL) B Grade

    Nicolas Mattinen is a solid player at this spot. Worst case scenario he turns into an AHL player.


  29. San Jose Sharks: Mark Shoemaker, D, North Bay Battalion (OHL) B Grade

    Mark Shoemaker gives San Jose a nice role player that could help the Barracuda out in the AHL in a few years once you finish developing. Shoemaker needs to finish developing for the North Bay Battalion in the OHL first.


  30. Pittsburgh Penguins: Joseph Masonius, D, Connecticut A+ Grade

    Joseph Masonius had 6 goals, 15 assists, and 21 points in 2015-2016. He has ability to be an offensive defenseman, but he needs to keep perfecting his defensive game on the blue line at Connecticut.
