6. Calgary Flames

player. 112. If Matthew Tkachuk is still available with pick No. 6, it will be an easy choice for the Calgary Flames. A terrific scorer who plays with a lot of energy and grit.<br /> <strong>Full draft profile: <a href=. Left Wing. London Knights, OHL. Matthew Tkachuk. 6

7. Arizona Coyotes

8. Buffalo Sabres

Some scouts see a Joe Thornton-type player in him. And who wouldn’t love a Joe Thornton on their top line?<br /> <strong>Full Draft Profile: <a href=. Center. Windsor Spitfires, OHL. Logan Brown. 9. player

10. Colorado Avalanche

Windsor Spitfires, OHL. Mikhail Sergachev. 10. player. 103. The Colorado Avalanche was lucky last year, when forward Mikko Rantanen fell to tenth overall. This year, they are lucky once more as Mikhail Sergachev drops just as far.<br /> <strong>Full draft profile: <a href=. Defense
