1 of 6

The 2015 NHL Draft looks to be a good one. While we wait the long week away until the draft starts, we decided to do our own little NHL mock draft as seeing where this next generation of talent goes is always interesting.

1. Edmonton Oilers

Center. Erie (OHL). Connor McDavid. 1. player. 148. McDavid is the pick that if the Oilers don’t take will just look silly. This kid had better numbers than Sid Crosby did at the same age. In 47 games this season with the Erie Ottors he posted 44 goals and 76 assists for 120 points. This kid is more than likely a generational talent that any team would be happy to have, so he obviously goes first overall.

2. Buffalo Sabres

Jack Eichel. 2. player. 12. Then there is the Boston College boy Eichel who spent a good amount of the season in McDavid’s shadow. Watching these two play at World Juniors in Canada this past year was something else. In 40 games this season at BU Eichel registered 71 points on 26 goals and 45 assists. Eichel also was awarded one of the highest awards in college hockey when he won the Hobey Baker award. Like McDavid he is a talent that is just to good to pass up on. These two could easily be the next Crosby and Ovechkin when it comes to who is better.. Center. Boston U (NCAA)

3. Arizona Coyotes

3. player. 121. Strome I think gets over looked sometimes when looking at top prospects. However, this young center will more than likely help your team out if you take him. In the 2014-15 season, he won the OHL scoring title scoring 129 points with 45 goals and 84 assists. The Coyotes need help in so many places, taking Strome will do nothing but good for the team.. Center. Erie (OHL). Dylan Strome

4. Toronto Maple Leafs

5. Carolina Hurricanes

Boston C (NCAA). Noah Hanifin. 5. player. 109. As Tim Chiasson from <a href=. Defense
