6. Vegas Golden Knights

7. Arizona Coyotes

The Coyotes seem set at center with 2015 pick Dylan Strome and 2016 selection Clayton Keller. Now it’s time for a defenseman with Norris Trophy potential. Cale Makar is one of the most dynamic offensive players in this draft. Full profile: <a href=. Defense. Brooks Bandits, AJHL. Cale Makar. 7. player. 121

8. Buffalo Sabres

After selecting Alexander Nylander last year, the Sabres pick up another dangerous scorer. Owen Tippett might be the best pure shooter in this draft, and the Sabres are happy to get him at eight. Full profile: <a href=. Right Wing. Mississauga Steelheads, OHL. Owen Tippett. 8. player. 12

9. Detroit Red Wings

10. Florida Panthers

10. player. 87. We are now entering the “Liljegren could be the next Chychrun” range and Liljegren is definitely an option for Florida. But the Panthers also realise they can’t pass up on Eeli Tolvanen. An outstanding shooter who creates danger in the offensive zone every time he steps on the ice. Coming from the USHL, he could join Florida’s AHL affiliate next season. Full profile: <a href=. Right Wing. Sioux City Musketeers, USHL. Eeli Tolvanen
