11. Florida Panthers

player. 87. The Florida Panthers haven’t been playing very successful hockey over the past years, which gave them the chance to rebuild through the draft. Timo Meier will be another important piece on the way to the top. Full draft profile: <a href=. Right Wing. Halifax (QMJHL). Timo Meier. 11

12. Dallas Stars

The Avalanche are reportedly very interested in Zacha, but eventually opt for Lawson Crouse. That leaves Zacha for the Dallas Stars that can need a new No. 2 center. Full draft profile: <a href=. Center. Sarnia (OHL). Pavel Zacha. 12. player. 119

13. Los Angeles Kings

The Los Angeles Kings don’t care about the “Russian factor” and select an extremely talented Russian forward. Sometimes compared to big forwards like Crouse and Rantanen, Svechnikov will be a very good pick.. Right Wing. Cape Breton (QMJHL). Evgeni Svechnikov. 13. player. 67

14. Boston Bruins

14. player. 70. Kyle Connor is a player you can see ranked anywhere between tenth and 20th. I have him going pretty much in the middle, as the Bruins select a very talented American center.. Left Wing/Center. Youngstown (USHL). Kyle Connor

15. Calgary Flames

Travis Konecny. 15. player. 112. If there is one team that has proven that small players can succeed in the NHL, it is the Calgary Flames with Calder Trophy finalist Johnny Gaudreau. They try it again and select small forward Travis Konecny.. Right Wing. Ottawa (OHL)
