26. New York Islanders

player. 106. Vitali Abramov is a terrifically skilled winger who tore up the QMJHL in his first North American season, scoring 38 goals and 93 points in 63 games. At 5-foot-9, physicality and defensive ability are a concern.. Wing. Gatineau Olympiques, QMJHL. Vitali Abramov. 26

27. Toronto Maple Leafs (via Pittsburgh)

28. St. Louis Blues

Forward. Victoriaville Tigres, QMJHL. Pascal Laberge. 28. player. 99. With the third-last pick in the first round, the St. Louis Blues select Pascal Laberge, a two-way forward who works extremely hard and plays with a lot of grit, but has no outstanding attributes. A high floor, low ceiling kind of player.

29. Dallas Stars

player. 119. Tyler Benson is a bit of a wild card. Considered a sure-fire first-round pick for the longest time, he only played 30 games this season thanks to an operation that removed a cyst last summer and a groin injury he suffered after playing 28 games this season. Benson is a great two-way forward and the Stars will be happy with their pick if he stays healthy.. Left Wing. Vancouver Giants, WHL. Tyler Benson. 29

30. Washington Capitals

player. 19. As the conclusion of the first round, the Washington Capitals select WHL center Brett Howden. A big, skilled center who can score, set up his teammates and play a responsible defensive game.. Center. Moose Jaw Warriors, WHL. Brett Howden. 30

Next: Benning Would Pick D-Man at #5
