16. Detroit Red Wings

17. Nashville Predators

US National U18. Kieffer Bellows. 17. player. 151. Think that Nashville is enjoying Filip Forsberg? How about making that a duo with a pure scorer in Kieffer Bellows? The Preds have a blueline stacked with young players who will only get better. The goal scoring is still an issue, however, despite the addition of Mr. Ryan Johansen. Keiffer should be a left winger copy of Forsberg. A line of Forsberg-Johansen-Bellows would be insanely intimidating a scoring force. Good pick with the 17th overall selection, where anyone is up for grabs. They have taken the best forward available.. LW

18. Philadelphia Flyers

D. Penticton, BCHL. Dante Fabbro. 18. player. 68. It is true that the Flyers have many blueline prospects with great upside. With Mark Streit set to leave, however, the Flyers would not be doing themselves any harm by picking the best player available in BCHL’s Dante Fabbro. Fabbro is a calm mind on the blueline who can dictate the tempo of the play. His offensive upside is also seismic. Craig Button saw him as a type of Travis Hamonic.

19. New York Islanders

player. 106. What is with the Logan’s of the Windsor Spitfires? They are massive! Following his teammate Brown’s top-ten pick, Stanley is a good blueliner with top-four potential that never seems to stop growing. His shutdown abilities is just sublime. The New York Islanders will be happy with this pick, a player who Button sees as a Erik Gudbranson-type of a blueliner. . D. Windsor, OHL. Logan Stanley. 19

20. Arizona Coyotes (via NYR)

121. The Arizona Coyotes missed out on drafting a top left winger in Tkachuk, and they addressed the most needy position on the blueline with a Juolevi selection at number seven, ignoring the highly-touted Mr. Nylander. Max Jones should be sufficient for the desert dogs as the left winger will be a physical power forward similar to Dustin Brown. Max Domi and Anthony Duclaire will be deadly if they play with an intimidating player like Jones. Starting with this pick, the draft becomes a sea of dozen players who all have the potential to make the late first round and fall as low as the mid-seconds.. LW. London, OHL. Max Jones. 20. player

"Jones is a raw talent but powerful. Erratic but tools are all there. (Bob McKenzie, June 20th)"
