2020 NHL Mock Draft 1.0: Lafreniere is the guy at the top

Nhl mock draft

Sanderson 6-1, 185 , who is committed to play at the University of North Dakota next season, had 29 points seven goals, 22 assists in 47 games. Given the Dallas focus on two-way players these days, Bourque makes a lot of sense here. Anaheim Ducks Kimelman -- Jamie Drysdale: The Ducks have invested heavily in forwards in recent drafts, and a chance to add the best defenseman in this year's class should be too hard to pass up. Toronto Maple Leafs Kimelman -- Dylan Holloway: Wisconsin struggled this season, but Holloway had moments where he stood out, especially with his skating and 200-foot play. That trio would be lustworthy as in wickedly potent and wildly fun to watch, with Gunler being one of the best pure snipers in this draft class. Lepage -- Seth Jarvis: Even though their centers show no signs of slowing down, the Avalanche might be enticed by Jarvis, a right-shot and a natural scorer.

Morreale -- William Wallinder, D, Modo Jr. Jan Mysak — C, Hamilton The 5-10, 175-pound Mysak jumped from the Czech League to Hamilton in the middle of the season and posted 15 goals and 25 points in 22 games after his arrival. Askarov has a long history as a big name netminder. So whether you're ready or not, it's time to drop my first mock draft for 2020. Lafreniere does all of the little things well, has tremendous skill and plays with edge. With Nico Hischier and Jack Hughes already penciled in at center, the Devils can explore the option of moving one to wing. Anaheim Ducks from Bruins Kimelman -- Ty Smilanic: Despite being limited to 34 games, Smilanic showed strong skating, vision and playmaking.

Although the Senators gave up what turned out to be the fourth overall pick to Colorado in the Matt Duchene deal, they landed this pick from San Jose for Erik Karlsson. The fact that Byfield also plays a 200-foot game and wins the majority of his draws helps make this a no-brainer pick for general manager Ray Shero. The final order will be set after the Stanley Cup Final. He also plays a more imposing game. He skates very well for his size and can be a high-volume shooter. For those following along at home, I am using the draft order as of the end of games from January 19, with trades already made accounted for. He has good hands and is lethal around the net.

NHL Mock Draft 2020: Predictions for Alexis Lafreniere and Top Prospects

Nhl mock draft

Morreale -- Noel Gunler: Gunler has good passing skills, shot selection and a willingness to drive to the net. He should be an early selection because of his all-around game that makes him an elite prospect in this year's class. Morreale -- Lapierre: Currently out indefinitely because of an upper-body injury, when healthy he has great hockey sense, competitiveness and playmaking qualities. He knocked in nine threes, setting the Boilermakers single-game record. He has top-six upside but projects as a complementary piece, though still the type of player that teams need to win championships.

What a difference a year makes, eh? They know how to be in the right places at the right times — and how to finish. Vigneault and overall front offices among very positive surprises for Flyers Like many, I wondered if Alain Vigneault was really the right hire for the Flyers. Morreale -- Tim Stuetzle: A hard-working left-shot forward capable of playing in all situations with speed, great vision and swagger. There was a lot to like for the Flyers in 2019-20, right down to a hot finish. The Senators previously took Raymond in fifth , fourth , fourth and third , with the Frolunda connection influencing this selection.

Lepage -- Jack Quinn: The Hurricanes rely on a solid core of young defensemen and could decide to add a bit of punch to their offense. Morreale -- Dylan Holloway: The left-shot forward is a complete two-way center with a great skill set, hands, competitiveness and drive to create offense. We will also assume that all top seeds won out in the postseason. Peterka and Lukas Reichel, who they took in , but Guhle would be too good to pass up at this spot. Yet … a lot of those risks are mitigated. Foudy plays for a deep Windsor squad that rolls four lines and keeps it tight defensively, and his quick stick and positioning creates turnovers in the offensive zone.

He was second with Prince Albert with 70 points 25 goals, 45 assists in 64 games and first with 27 power-play points 10 goals, 17 assists. One of the youngest players in this draft -- he turns 18 on July 28 -- there still are areas where Wallinder needs to improve, but his potential is enormous. Cormier controls the game thanks to his vision and his dazzling skating. If that trend holds, Wisconsin freshman Holloway seems to fit the mold. A blend of old school and new, Schneider has good size, is physically engaging, reads the game like a pro, and carries an impressive load of offensive tools, from a right handed shot.
