2016 NHL Mock Draft: Part II (11-20)

2016 nhl mock draft

Here is my 2016 NHL Mock Draft: Part II.

11.       New Jersey Devils 38-36-8 84PTS
C Michael McLeod (CAN) 6’2 185LBS
Mississauga (OHL) – 57GP 21G 40A 61PTS 71PIM +10
A skilled, powerful two-way centre, Michael McLeod has quietly made himself a legitimate prospect. He brings size, speed, skill and finesse. Can play a full 200 foot game and has the creativity to score and make plays.
12.       Ottawa Senators 38-35-9 85PTS
C Logan Brown (USA) 6’6 220LBS
Windsor (OHL) – 59GP 21G 53A 74PTS 40PIM +24
Another big forward in this year’s draft, Logan Brown is a great playmaker who possesses an NHL ready shot. Plays both ends of the ice effectively and uses his 6’6 body to shield puck. With the help of his body he can make creative passes and produce points well.
13.       Carolina Hurricanes 35-31-16 86PTS
RW Julien Gauthier (CAN) 6’3 229LBS
Val-d’Or (QMJHL) – 54GP 41G 16A 57PTS 24PIM +24
Scouts are concerned about Gauthier due to the fact he had almost triple the goals he had assists but that isn’t all on him. A massive power forward who can use his body to get to the net and put the puck in. Some scouts don’t have him in the top 20 but watch for Gauthier to be a dark horse.
14.       Boston Bruins 42-31-9 93PTS
LW Max Jones (USA) 6’3 201LBS
London (OHL) – 63GP 28G 24A 52PTS 106PIM +30
Another power forward coming in the form of Max Jones. Jones was given a 12 game suspension this year due to a head shot but that didn’t derail him. A difference maker on the ice whether he’s scoring, hitting or defending. Plays very aggressive and would fit Bruins hockey perfectly.
15.       Minnesota Wild 38-33-11 87PTS
C Clayton Keller (USA) 5’10 163LBS
USA U18 (NTDP) – 62GP 37G 70A 107PTS 40PIM +/- N/A
One of the most skilled players in the entire draft, Keller brings a lot to the table. However, scouts are worried over his small frame and a slow final half of the season. His smarts make up for it and allow him to be a pain to other teams. Keller is committed to Boston University for next season.
16.       Detroit Red Wings 41-30-11 93PTS
D Jake Bean (CAN) 6’1 172LBS
Calgary (WHL) – 62GP 24G 40A 64PTS 28PIM +8
Bean was held out of the World Juniors due to a broken foot, but in the WHL he was an offensive catalyst for the Hitmen. A full on offensive defenseman who needs work on the defensive aspects of his game, can man the point on a power play and produce points.
17.       Nashville Predators 41-27-14 96PTS
C German Rubtsov (RUS) 6’0 190LBS
Team Russia (Jr.) – 28GP 12G 14A 26PTS 10PIM +12
Rubtsov plays a two-way style that scouts enjoy. He has great attention to detail on the defensive side of the game at a young age. An excellent skater with tons of versatility anywhere in the lineup.
18.       Philadelphia Flyers 41-27-14 96PTS
LW Kieffer Bellows (USA) 6’0 196LBS
USA U18 (NTDP) – 62GP 50G 31A 81PTS 101PIM +/- N/A
The teammate and line mate of Clayton Keller, Bellows possesses an accurate shot and can puck handle. A good skater who fore checks hard and fast. Can finish effectively and differently.
19.   New York Islanders 45-27-10 100PTS
D Dante Fabbro (CAN) 6’0 192LBS
Penticton (BCHL) – 45GP 14G 53A 67PTS 30PIM +/- N/A
Being teammates with Tyson Jost may have helped Fabbro get noticed but nonetheless he was, and has shown he is a legitimate NHL prospect. Does what he can to defend and is very smart. Along with defensive capabilities he can put up points. Solid two way defender with great offensive upside.
20.   Arizona Coyotes (From New York Rangers) 35-39-8 78PTS
LW Riley Tufte (USA) 6’5 212LBS
Fargo (USHL) – 27GP 10G 4A 14PTS 30PIM -5
Another big winger, Tufte isn’t your typical mean and nasty power forward but isn’t afraid to use his body. Brings a good mixture of skating and size. Really matured after going from high school to Fargo in the USHL.
