Community NHL Mock Draft 2012: Phoenix Coyotes


Welcome to the party, Desert Dogs. We're almost through the entire community mock draft as we stop for a visit in the NHL's most volatile city. Will they stay? Will they move? Will they have new owners? Will the NHL ever figure out how to offload this team?

Of course, none of the questions surrounding the team have led to anything but success on the ice. Fans are in the building, the team is playing well, and the fans and players both deserve some resolution. Personally, I hope that resolution finds the Yotes remaining in the desert and playing well long into the future.

Right now, however, we need to worry about who the Yotes will draft to add to the stable of prospects they have absolutely stolen from the Calgary Flames.

Our draft thus far:

  1. Edmonton Oilers: Nail Yakupov
  2. Columbus Blue Jackets: Ryan Murray
  3. Montreal Canadiens: Alex Galchenyuk
  4. New York Islanders: Filip Forsberg
  5. Toronto Maple Leafs: Mikhail Grigorenko
  6. Anaheim Ducks: Matthew Dumba
  7. Minnesota Wild: Jacob Trouba
  8. Carolina Hurricanes: Teuvo Teravainen
  9. Winnipeg Jets: Morgan Rielly
  10. Tampa Bay Lightning: Griffin Reinhart
  11. Washington Capitals (from Colorado): Radek Faksa
  12. Buffalo Sabres: Cody Ceci
  13. Dallas Stars - Zemgus Girgensons
  14. Calgary Flames - Olli Maata
  15. Ottawa Senators - Brendan Guance
  16. Washington Capitals - Sebastian Collberg
  17. San Jose Sharks - Pontus Aberg
  18. Chicago Blackhawks - Andrei Vasilevski
  19. Tampa Bay Lightning - Malcom Subban
  20. Philadelphia Flyers - Hampus Lindholm
  21. Buffalo Sabres - Derrick Pouliot
  22. Pittsburgh Penguins - Slater Koekkoek
  23. Florida Panthers - Stefan Matteau
  24. St. Louis Blues - Martin Frk
  25. Vancouver Canucks - Dalton Thrower
