26. Washington Capitals

<a href=. C. Farjestad (SHL). Rasmus Asplund . 26. player. 19

27. Tampa Bay Lightning

23. The Tampa Bay Lightning are in win-now mode, so they have enough time to wait for this project winger to develop. Tage Thompson needs to round out his game and transform into a power forward rather than just a big winger, which might take a few years. But if it happens, it will pay off for the Lightning.. C. Connecticut (NCAA). Tage Thompson . 27. player

28. St. Louis Blues

C. Moose Jaw (WHL). Brett Howden . 28. player. 99. Long-time Blues center <a href=

29. Boston Bruins (from San Jose)

70. Boris Katchouk is good at everything but does nothing outstanding. That allows him to project as a fourth-line forward at worst, which is good enough for the Bruins at this point. They got a blue-chip defense prospect earlier in the first, so they are excited to add another future NHL player.. LW. S.S. Marie (OHL). Boris Katchouk . 29. player

30. Toronto Maple Leafs (from Pittsburgh)

D. Shawinigan (QMJHL). Samuel Girard . 30. player. 116. Auston Matthews was a player you can’t go wrong with at No. 1. Samuel Girard is a player a lot can go wrong with, but the Leafs are willing to take the risk. Girard’s offensive skill set is intriguing, and Toronto has enough picks to compensate if this one doesn’t work out.
