2015 NHL Mock Draft
Scouting Reports of First Round Hopefuls
It's finally the day of the first round of the draft, and while the first two picks are obvious, the late first round is much more murky. These players have first round skillsets that give them a shot of being taken on day one.
HW Mock Draft: Pick 30: Brock Boeser
The Lightning want them some B-ville Brute, in the form of Brock Boeser
HW Staff 2015 NHL Mock Draft Pick 29: Noah Juulsen
With the 29th pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, the Philadelphia Flyers select Noah Juulsen from Everett of the Western Hockey League.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 28: Vince Dunn
The 2015 NHL Entry Draft is just 1 day away and the Wild are looking to find that next NHL star to raise their franchise to the next level. Hockey Wilderness is counting down the days with a daily mock draft. Coming fresh from the sting of agonizing defeat in the Stanley Cup Final, The Tampa Bay Lightning are on the clock with the 28th pick in our Hockey Wilderness Mock Draft.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 27
The Ducks are on the clock in our mock draft and they have selected Jansen Harkins.
HW Staff Mock Draft: Paul Bittner
In the Hockey Wilderness Mock Draft, the Montreal Canadiens grab big Minnesotan forward Paul Bittner with the 26th pick. The 6-foot-6, 18-year-old forward works the dirty areas of the ice and has big potential.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 25: Oliver Kylington
Already loaded with top young players, the Jets take a defender who could emerge as the best in this draft with Pick 25.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 24: Thomas Chabot
More depth is the thing that the Maple Leafs prospect pool needs most, and they would get that with smooth skating, two-way defenseman Thomas Chabot.

With the 23rd pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, the Vancouver Canucks select, from the US National Development Pool, Right Wing Jeremy Bracco
HW Staff NHL Mock Draft Pick 22: Joel Eriksson Ek
With the 22nd pick of the 2015 NHL Draft, the Washington Capitals select from Farjestad Joel Eriksson Ek.

HW Staff Mock Draft: Wild Select Denis Guryanov
At long last, it's the Wild are on the clock. With the 20th pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, I'm betting they take Denis Guryanov.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 19: Brandon Carlo
The 2015 NHL Entry Draft is 15 days away and the Wild are looking to find that next NHL star to raise their franchise to the next level. Hockey Wilderness is counting down the days with a mock draft. We are at pick number 19.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 18: Jakub Zboril
The Ottawa Senators look to bolster their blueline depth with the Czech native.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 17: Nick Merkley
Gritty playmaker Nick Merkley would add to Winnipeg's already deep prospect pool if they took him with the 17th pick.
HW Staff Mock Draft 2015: Pick 16
The Edmonton Oilers are in need of a lot of help, and here's a big chance to get it
HW Staff Mock Draft 2015 Pick 15: Timo Meier
With the 15th pick in the 2015, the Calgary Flames are proud to select from the Halifax Mooseheads Timo Meier.

With the 14th overall selection in the HW 2015 Mock Draft, the Boston Bruins are proud to select, out of the USHL Youngstown Phantoms, center Kyle Connor.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 13: Travis Konecny
With the 13th pick, I'm betting the Kings draft for organisational need rather than taking the best player available.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 12: Mathew Barzal
Dallas grabs a elite-level playmaking center Mathew Barzal with the 12th pick, because, you know, they don't have much of that kind of thing.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 11: Evgeny Svechnikov
Florida bolsters their young forward depth, getting a big, dynamic Russian Winger out of Cape Breton.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 10: Pavel Zacha
The Avs take Czech center, Pavel Zacha, because they want to draft big and fast, and he fits both those characteristics, and adds a dash of nasty that will make him tough to play against at the NHL level.

With the 9th Overall Pick in the 2015 Draft, the San Jose Sharks are Proud to Select, from the WHL's Brandon Wheat Kings, Ivan Provorov.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 8: Zachary Werenski
For the 8th pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, the Columbus Blue Jackets are proud to select from the University of Michigan, Zachary Werenski.
HW Staff Mock Draft 2015 Pick 7: Lawson Crouse
With the 7th overall selection in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, the Philadelphia Flyers select, from the OHL's Kingston Frontenacs, forward Lawson Crouse.

With the fifth pick in the Hockey Wilderness mock draft, the Carolina Hurricanes select Noah Hanifin from the Boston College Eagles.
HW Staff 2015 Mock Draft Pick 4: Mitch Marner
The forward from the London Knights destroyed the OHL this season. He'll be a great fit in Toronto.
HW Staff Mock Draft Pick 3: Dylan Strome
The Arizona Coyotes have perhaps the toughest choice of the draft, who to take with the third pick. Big-bodied Dylan Strome would be a good choice for them in the physical Pacific division.
HW Staff Mock Draft 2015 Pick 1
With the first pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, the Edmonton Oilers select from the Erie Otters Connor McDavid.
