Hi, this is Lowetide. Each year, some of the finest draft onlookers in the Oilogosphere post their selections in the week leading up to the draft. I’m delighted to present Blue Bullet’s list, which coming on the heels of spOILer’s means we’re doubly blessed. Almost Christmas!
Blue Bullet 2013 Draft Rankings
After last year’s weaker draft, this season’s draft more than makes up for with this year having the most depth I can remember in a long time with it possibly being the best since 2003. I really can’t wait to see how it plays out on Sunday when you have a 3rd round that is as good as other year’s 2nd rounds. For me that meant there were more players to look into so I had no choice but to expand my list to a top 100. So after many hours of pouring through stats and various draft guides, this is my ranking of the 2013 draft.
ROUND 1 (1-30)
1(1) NATHAN MACKINNON C 6’0 182 R SEP 1/95 HALIFAX QMJHL 44GP-32G-43A-75P-45PIM
He was first at the start of my season, first at mid-season and after an impressive Memorial Cup, Nathan MacKinnon locked up my number 1 spot. For the majority of the season it has been a 3 way race for the top spot and in the end I have to give the spot to the player I think most likely turns into a star player. While you can make an argument that MacKinnon has the least upside out of the top 3, he is also the likeliest player to live up to his potential and in the end the upside of Drouin and Jones does not offset their risk factor.
2(3) JONATHAN DROUIN LW 5’11 185 L MAR 27/95 HALIFAX QMJHL 49GP-41G-64A-105P-32PIM
Drouin’s draft season reminds me of Jonathan Huberdeau’s as neither player was seen as a top 3 pick at the start of the season but an impressive Memorial Cup winning season will change all that. In terms of offensive upside Drouin is at the top of the heap and it would not surprise to see him be the biggest point producer from this draft. However, MacKinnon plays the more important position and is the better-rounded player which in the end was the deciding factor.
3(2) SETH JONES D 6’3 205 R OCT 3/94 PORTLAND WHL 61GP-14G-42A-56P-33PIM
The last time I had a d-man ranked as my #1 player was back in 2006 with Erik Johnson, who is a great example of why it is riskier to use a #1 pick on a d-man than it is a forward. While I really like Jones as a player, I have to be 100% sold that he will be a cornerstone franchise d-man to rank him #1 and in the end I still have some doubts. While I love his size, skating and smarts I just which he had that little extra edge to his game like a Weber or Pronger.
4(4) ALEKSANDER BARKOV C 6’3 209 L SEP 2/95 TAPPARA SM-LIIGA 53GP-21G-27A-48P-8PIM
Barkov is the type of big centreman that Oilers fans have been dreaming about for years but since he is such a good fit for the Preds I doubt they will be parting with this pick. With Barkov he is not very far off being considered in the top 3 and his upside is as good as anyone in this draft. The biggest knock on him is that his skating is not at the level of players likes Jones or MacKinnon which keeps Barkov just outside of the top 3.
5(7) VALERY NICHUSHKIN RW 6’4 202 L MAR 4/95 CHELYABINSK KHL 18GP-4G-2A-6P-0PIM
Nichushkin was the X factor for the top end of the draft but that all changed with the conditional termination of his KHL contract. With Nichushkin you are getting a power forward winger whose physical skill set is arguably the best of any player available in the draft. That being said, there is more to hockey than just the physical side and the questions concerning whether he has elite hockey sense drop him just outside the top 4.
6(5) ELIAS LINDHOLM C 6’0 192 R DEC 2/94 BRYNAS SWEE 48GP-11G-19A-30P-2PIM
When doing my rankings, certain players draft season will remind you of another player and with Lindholm his season reminds me of fellow countrymen Niklas Backstrom. Whether he becomes close to as good as Backstrom is another story but Lindholm is one of the most complete two-way players that you could select. With Lindholm, I think his upside is right there with Barkov and Nichushkin but in the end size was the difference.
7(6) SEAN MONAHAN C 6’2 190 L OCT 12/94 OTTAWA OHL 58GP-31G-47A-78P-24PIM
Monahan would be the ideal selection for the Oilers which must be the reason why my gut says Calgary is taking him at 6th. What Monahan brings is a two way playmaking center with size that plays a fairly complete game for his age that has drawn comparisons to a poor man’s Jonathan Toews. While I am a big fan of Monahan I do not see the same offensive upside as the player’s I have ranked above him and see him as more of a 50-60 point 2nd line center.
8(9) DARNELL NURSE D 6’4 190 L FEB 4/95 SAULT STE. MARIE OHL 68GP-12G-29A-41P-116PIM
For Darnell Nurse, it must be great to be able to have family members like Richard Nurse and Donovan McNabb to turn to for advice. Nurse’s has athleticism, size, physicality and a underrated offensive game as his even strength PPG production was second only to Jones for draft eligible CHL d-men. With Nurse, his physical tools give him a higher upside than Monahan but there are some questions regarding Nurse’s hockey sense at times which you don’t hear about with Monahan.
9(13) ALEXANDER WENNBERG C/LW 6’1 190 L SEP 22/94 DJURGARDENS SWEAL 46GP-14G-18A-32P-14PIM
I haven’t seen any other draft ranking with Wennberg in the top 10 and maybe it’s because he was a 94 born but he is not getting the love he deserves. When ranking Euro prospects it always benefits to compare with a NA prospect and Wennberg is a very good two-way player with as much upside to that of Monahan. The difference between the two in the end comes down to the fact I believe Monahan is a more natural center and is physically stronger at this point in time.
10(8) RASMUS RISTOLAINEN D 6’3 205 R OCT 27/94 TPS TURKU FINE 52GP-3G-12A-15P-32PIM
With Ristolainen there is varying opinions on his upside as some like me see him as a top pick while others have him outside their top 20. With Ristolainen, you are getting a well rounded jack of all trades d-man with size and similar upside to that of Oscar Klefbom. While Ristolainen has the upside to be a #2 d-man the concerns brought up over how well he will adapt to the NHL pace keeps him just outside my top 10.
11(11) NIKITA ZADOROV D 6’5 221 L APR 15/95 LONDON OHL 63GP-6G-19A-25P-54PIM
A 6’5 220 lb physical d-man is an intimidating presence for NHL players to deal with so it must have been quite the ordeal for the teams playing the Knights this year. When it comes to big physical shutdown d-men it is rare to find them with the mobility that Zadorov brings which is what makes him such a hot commodity. When deciding between Zadorov and Ristolainen, I believe Ristolainen has the better offensive skills and better rounded game.
12(21) MAX DOMI C/LW 5’9 195 L MAR 2/95 LONDON OHL 64GP-39G-48A-87P-71PIM
With most 5’9 forwards there is a concern over your size and how well you will adapt to the NHL game but that all goes out the window when you’re Tie Domi’s kid. What he does bring to the table that his dad never could is great hands and the offensive skill set to be a top 6 forward most likely as a 2nd liner. While I am a fan of Domi he is not as complete a player as Wennberg or Monahan as both those players have better defensive games and are more consistent players.
13(25) BO HORVAT C 6’0 206 L MAY 4/95 LONDON OHL 67GP-33G-28A-61P-29PIM
From the players I had in my mid-season rankings Bo Horvat was tied as my biggest draft riser after his very strong performance through the OHL playoffs. Horvat is a coach’s dream as he is a hardworking smart two way player that can play in all situations and is future captain material. While I do love Horvat’s all around game and what he will bring to a team I think he doesn’t have the offensive upside of the forwards above him and tops out more as a 40-50 point player.
14(26) CURTIS LAZAR C 6’0 193 R FEB 2/95 EDMONTON WHL 72GP-38G-23A-61P-47PIM
The player that tied Horvat for biggest draft riser was Lazar who was able to crack my top 15. Lazar is the type of player who even if he is not producing points he is still an effective player because of how responsible he is without the puck. My biggest knock on him is that you wish he was as consistent at scoring as he was the rest of his game. It ended up being basically a coin flip decision between him and Horvat, as I see very similar upside, but my gut says to go with Horvat.
15(17) VALENTIN ZYKOV LW 6’0 210 L MAY 15/95 BAIE COMEAU QMJHL 67GP-40G-35A-75P-60PIM
Valentin Zykov was not a heralded import coming into the season but that didn’t stop him from becoming the CHL rookie of the year. After having 50 goals between regular season and playoffs, I believe Zykov has all the tools to be a two-way 25-30 goal scoring power forward who loves to drive for the net. While it was a close decision between Zykov and Shinkaruk, as both bring different skill sets to the table, I prefer Zykov’s combo of scoring and strength off the wing.
16(16) HUNTER SHINKARUK LW 5’10 181 L OCT 13/94 MEDICINE HAT WHL 64GP-37G-49A-86P-44PIM
Shinkaruk was a top 10 pick going into the year after having a 91 point season in 2011-2012 but he didn’t quite live up to my expectations. With Shinkaruk you are getting a skilled speedy offensive player that can be very opportunistic and will go into the traffic areas despite his size. While he does have strong offensive skills, I do not see him as a first liner and feel he is more likely to be a secondary scoring option.
17(12) FREDERIK GAUTHIER C 6’5 215 L APR 26/95 RIMOUSKI QMJHL 62GP-22G-38A-60P-26PIM
At mid-season Gauthier was a player I thought had the potential to move into my top 10 but by year’s end he instead slid just outside my top 15. He is a player that came out of midget hockey last year and has shown he is a strong two-way player that is very committed defensively for a player of his age. While he has the potential to be better than Horvat/Lazar due to his combo of size and two-way game, out of the three he probably has the least offensive upside.
18(14) ADAM ERNE LW/RW 6’1 206 L APR 20/95 QUEBEC QMJHL 68GP-28G-44A-72P-67PIM
There is certainly differences of opinions when it comes to Erne as he is ranked anywhere from a top 15 pick to outside the first round. I definitely see him as a first rounder and with his size and skills he looks to have the potential to be a good north-south power forward. At this point in the draft it is splitting hairs, as many of these players have similar upsides and little separates Erne at 18th and Horvat at the 13th spot.
19(10) ANTHONY MANTHA LW/RW 6’4 190 L SEP 16/94 VAL D’OR QMJHL 67GP-50G-39A-89P-71PIM
Mantha is the type of player that looks so good on paper that if you were only looking at the stats he would definitely be a top 10 pick. In terms of upside, 6’4 players with soft hands and a shot like Mantha’s do not come around often and he could be a 30+ goal scorer. Despite that, all anybody seems to mention about Mantha is that the compete level and passion are lacking in his game which makes him a riskier pick.
20(20) KERBY RYCHEL LW 6’1 205 L OCT 7/94 WINDSOR OHL 68GP-40G-47A-87P-94PIM
So when a coach looked at Warren Rychel and said “if only he had hands” all he had to do is wait about 20 years for his son Kerby to come around. Like the players ranked above him, Rychel is a good power forward whose size and strong shot make him a potential secondary scoring threat. With Rychel he has similar upside to the players in the 13-16 spots but the concerns about his skating drop him down a couple of spots.
21(15) RYAN PULOCK D 6’1 211 R OCT 6/94 BRANDON WHL 61GP-14G-31A-45P-22PIM
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a defenseman on my list, as it is a better bet to take a forward and as you can see, there are many good forwards available in the first round. My favourite of the next tier of d-men is Pulock who is a jack of all trades 2nd pairing 30 point d-man with a huge point shot. While Pulock was a player that I considered in my top 10 at the start of the season he doesn’t have elite offensive upside to be a top pairing d-man.
22(18) JOSH MORRISSEY D 6’0 185 L MAR 28/95 PRINCE ALBERT WHL 70GP-15G-32A-47P-91PIM
All year long it has been a close battle to see who would be the top WHL d-men and it will be interesting to see who gets chosen first between Morrissey and Pulock. While he is slightly undersized for a defenseman, Morrissey is a great skating puck mover with 2nd pairing potential similar to that of Pulock. It was very tough to decide between which of the two I preferred but I went with Pulock’s well rounded game and his point shot over Morrissey’s skating ability.
23(NR) SAMUEL MORIN D 6’6 203 L JUL 12/95 RIMOUSKI QMJHL 46GP-4G-12A-16P-117PIM
While Morin was always on my radar, it was the U-18 tournament that really raised his stock to being a 1st round selection. Morin’s mobility for his size is a rare combination and in terms of upside his potential is just as good as Zadorov and Ristolainen. However, his defensive game is much rawer than those players just mentioned so there is a bigger risk factor that Morin will never fulfill his potential compared to them.
24(NR) NICOLAS PETAN C 5’9 165 L MAR 22/95 PORTLAND WHL 71GP-46G-74A-120P-43PIM
When we’re talking about picks that have huge risk but huge rewards you just have to point to Nic Petan as a good example. In terms of smarts, puck skills and playmaking ability, Petan is as good as anybody in this draft and has the potential to be a top line forward at the pro level. However it is very hard to guess which small players will have what it takes to make it and if I was going to make a higher risk pick I would take a chance on Morin over Petan.
25(19) ROBERT HAGG D 6’2 204 L FEB 8/95 MODE SWEJE 28GP-11G-13A-24P-24PIM
As you move down the draft in the first round the riskier but more rewarding players like Hagg become more appealing. Hagg is a two-way d-man with a strong shot and good size and who has all the tools to develop into a skilled 2nd pairing defenseman. However, while he has all the tools to be a top 15 pick the varying scouting opinions on how good of a toolbox he possesses drop him to the latter half of the first round.
26(NR) RYAN HARTMAN RW 5’11 185 R SEP 20/94 PLYMOUTH OHL 56GP-23G-37A-60P-120PIM
Players like Hartman are the type any team loves to have and the kind that other teams hate to play against. What is great about Hartman is that he does not need PP time to get his points as his even strength production is some of the best in this draft class. While I love his character and agitator abilities, I am not entirely sold on whether he has the natural offensive skills to be a 2nd liner at the pro level.
27(NR) EMILE POIRIER LW 6’1 183 L DEC 14/94 GATINEAU QMJHL 65GP-32G-38A-70P-101PIM
Poirier was one of the most improved players during the season and has dropped the sleeper tag after coming onto most everybody’s radar. A well-rounded player that was used in all situations this year in Gatineau but predominantly put up his point 5 on 5, which suggests there might be more offense to his game than first believed. Like Hartman, there are doubts on whether he will be a top 6 forward but he does have all the versatility to be a very good role player if he does not.
28(NR) J.T. COMPHER C 5’11 184 R APR 8/95 US NTDP USHL 52GP-18G-32A-50P-51PIM
When guys like Hartman and Compher play you can’t help but think of the old saying “it’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” Compher is a good example of this as he a versatile two way centre who has a reputation as a good faceoff man. Like Hartman, I do question whether he will be a 2nd liner at the pro level as I have a feeling he is more likely to end up as a 3rd line checking centre.
29(29) JACOB DE LA ROSE LW/C 6’2 190 L May 20/95 LEKSANDS SWEAL 38GP-6G-6A-12P-31PIM
De La Rose came into the year as potential top ten pick and while he still had a solid season he dropped down to a late 1st/early 2nd round pick. De La Rose brings a great work ethic to go along with his size and a strong two way game. The one drawback to his game and the reason why he moved down the rankings is because he is not seen as a natural scorer and is believed he will more likely be a 3rd line checker.
30(27) MORGAN KLIMCHUK LW 5’11 180 L MAR 2/95 REGINA WHL 72GP-36G-40A-76P-20PIM
For the last spot in my first round, it goes to a skilled smaller winger who would love to follow in the footsteps of former Regina Pats Jordan Eberle. While not the biggest guy, Klimchuk is a smart goal scorer who has been making to strides to improve his overall game. When slotting in Klimchuk, while I believe his offensive game is probably the best out of the players in the 26-30 spots, I prefer their all-around over that of Klimchuk.
ROUND 2 (31-60)
31(30) MIRCO MUELLER D 6’3 184 L Mar 21/95 EVERETT WHL 63GP-6G-25A-31P-57PIM
While not the sexiest pick, Mueller has 2nd pairing potential and is the reliable steady d-men coaches can count on.
32(NR) MADISON BOWEY D 6’1 195 R APR 22/95 KELOWNA WHL 69GP-12G-18A-30P-75PIM
Bowey is a mobile two way defender who increased his stock with a strong showing at the U-18 tournament.
33(NR) IAN MCCOSHEN D 6’3 205 L AUG 5/95 US NTDP USHL 55GP-11G-33A-44P-48PIM
When it’s a deep draft, being 6’3 while being the PPG leader for defenseman in your league as well as being 6th in the league in +/- will make you get noticed.
34(NR) ZACHARY FUCALE G 6’1 176 L MAY 28/95 HALIFAX QMJHL 55GP-2.35GAA-0.909SV%
While goaltenders in general are riskier picks, the best of this year’s lot is Fucale who helped lead the Mooseheads to the Memorial Cup.
35(23) ANDRE BURAKOVSKY LW 6’1 178 L Feb 9/95 MALMO SWEAI 43GP-4G-7A-11P-PIM
While he has the talent level to be a first round choice, inconsistent play make Burakovsky too big a risk to use a 1st round pick.
36(22) ARTTURI LEHKONEN LW/RW 5’11 163 L Mar 4/95 KALPA SM-LIIGA 45GP-14G-16A-30P-12PIM
Lehkonen is a talented small winger who is willing to go into the dirty areas and has already proven he can play against men with a strong season in the SM-liiga.
37(NR) STEVE SANTINI D 6’2 207 R MAR 7/95 US NTDP USHL 66GP-0G-15A-15P-44PIM
Santini is an old school hard hitting defensive d-man whose limited offensive upside keeps him outside of the first round.
38(24) WILLIAM CARRIER LW/C 6’1 198 L Dec 20/94 CAPE BRETON QMJHL 34GP-16G-26A-42P-41PIM
It was not a good year to get an injury because of there being so much depth to this draft that Carrier has become the forgotten man.
39(NR) DILLON HEATHERINGTON D 6’3 196 L MAY 9/95 SWIFT CURRENT WHL 71GP-4G-23A-27P-80PIM
Heatherington is a big smart reliable defensive d-man whose stock has been steadily climbing over the year.
40(28) SHEA THEODORE D 6’2 182 L Aug 3/95 SEATTLE WHL 71GP-19G-31A-50P-32PIM
Theodore definitely has the offensive skills to be a 2nd pairing d-man but will need to improve his strength as well as his defensive consistency to make it to the NHL.
41 PAVEL BUCHNEVICH C 6’1 176 L APR 17/95 CHEREPOVETS MHL 24GP-8G-15A-23P-36PIM
This talented Russian playmaking center jumped up in the rankings after leading Russia in scoring at the U-18.
42 CHRIS BIGRAS D 6’1 189 L FEB 22/95 OWEN SOUND OHL 68GP-8G-30A-38P-34PIM
Bigras is what you would call a safe but unspectacular choice as he is an average sized smart reliable d-man.
43 TRISTAN JARRY G 6’1 178 L APR 29/95 EDMONTON WHL 27GP-1.61GAA-0.936SV%
Having to backup Brossoit and receiving limited playing time probably hurt Jarry in the rankings despite the incredible numbers he posted this year.
44 LAURENT DAUPHIN C 6’0 166 L MAR 26/95 CHICOUTIMI QMJHL 62GP-25G-32A-57P-50PIM
Dauphin made the jump from midget hockey to the Q look easier than it should and could make another big jump forward next year after having a season under his belt.
45 JASON DICKINSON LW 6’1 179 L JUL 4/95 GUELPH OHL 66GP-18G-29A-47P-31PIM
Dickinson was considered to be a 1st round pick coming into this year but a disappointing season has dropped the talented player to being a 2nd round choice.
46 OLIVER BJORKSTRAND LW/RW 5’11 167 R APR 10/95 PORTLAND WHL 65GP-31G-32A-63P-10PIM
Bjorkstrand doesn’t get the credit he deserves for putting up almost a PPG while receiving 2nd unit PP time on a deep Winterhawks squad.
47 ERIC COMRIE G 6’1 171 L JUL 6/95 TRI-CITY WHL 37GP-2.62GAA-0.915SV%
Comrie was receiving buzz to be a 1st round choice before a hip injury derailed his season. Teams will have to do their due diligence in regards to the long term effects of this injury.
48 CONNOR HURLEY C 6’1 172 L SEP 15/95 EDINA USHS 31GP-20G-32A-52P-10PIM
A bit rawer of a prospect, Hurley had strong point production in high school but only had 1 goal in 11 games in his limited time in the USHL.
49 MARKO DANO C 5’11 183 L NOV 30/94 SLOVAN KHL 37GP-3G-4A-7P-26PIM
My top ranked Slovakian, Dano plays bigger than his size and has already established himself as a bottom 6 forward in the KHL.
50 NICK SORENSON RW 6’1 175 R OCT 23/94 QUEBEC QMJHL 46GP-20G-27A-47P-18PIM
This well rounded talented Dane has battled injuries the past two seasons bouncing back from a major knee injury that limited him to 8 games last year.
51 TOMMY VANNELLI D 6’2 170 R JAN 26/95 MINNETONKA USHS 25GP-8G-23A-31P-14PIM
Vannelli is a tall lanky smooth skating d-man whose offensive upside is hard to get a read on as the opinions are varying.
52 RYAN FITZGERALD C 5’10 170 L OCT 19/94 VALLEY WARRIORS EJHL 32GP-17G-19A-36P-58PIM
Another player with good family bloodlines, he has all the skills to be a top 9 two way forward despite being a smaller player.
53 PETER CEHLARIK LW 6’2 192 L AUG 2/95 LULEA SWEJE 38GP-17G-20A-37P-10PIM
The 2nd Slovak to make my top 60, Cehlarik had a stronger than expected season in Sweden where he had an impressive showing with 6 points in 8 games in the Swedish Elite League.
54 ERIC ROY D 6’3 180 L OCT 24/94 BRANDON WHL 72GP-17G-22A-39P-37PIM
Roy is a talented offensive d-man with 2nd pairing upside but he needs to improve his play in his own zone.
55 NICK BAPTISTE RW 6’1 189 R AUG 4/95 SUDBURY OHL 66GP-21G-27A-48P-44PIM
Baptiste had a slow start to the year with 9 points in 23 games but finished strong including an impressive performance at the U-18 tournament.
56 JIMMY LODGE C 6’1 170 R MAR 5/95 SAGINAW OHL 64GP-28G-39A-67P-28PIM
While Lodge has the talent to be a top 6 forward he still has a ways to go and a lot of pounds to put on before he gets there.
57 MICHAEL MCCARRON RW 6’5 228 R MAR 7/95 US NTDP USHL 59GP-16G-21A-37P-182PIM
If his hockey sense matched his physical tools we would be talking about a first round pick as McCarron is a long shot to be a top 6 forward at the NHL level.
58 LINUS ARNESSON D 6’2 187 L SEP 21/94 DJURGARDENS SWEAL 31GP-0G-1A-1P-8PIM
If you prefer your defenseman to be the steady and reliable type, than Arnesson is definitely someone who should be on your radar.
59 JOHN HAYDEN RW 6’3 210 R FEB 14/95 US NTDP USHL 53GP-17G-17A-34P-80 PIM
If Hayden was a better skater, he would be a late 1st round or early 2nd round pick as he has everything else to be a physical top 9 power forward.
60 MATT BUCKLES C/RW 6’1 204 R APR 8/95 ST. MICHAEL’S OJHL 50GP-40G-31A-71P-107PIM
Buckles did play in a lesser league but 40 goals in 50 games is still an impressive feat and what remains to be seen is if he has the toolbox to match his toolset.
THE REST (61-100)
