The draft resumes Saturday with rounds 2-7 (10 a.m. ET; NHLN, TVA Sports).
Here is a pick-by-pick look at the first round:
1) Edmonton Oilers
Connor McDavid, Center
NHL Central Scouting final ranking: 1
2014-15: Erie Otters (OHL); Stats: 47 games, 44-76-120
Summary: An exceptional skater capable of making split-second decisions on the fly. The projected generational-type player is effective on every shift in whatever role given. Named the Canadian Hockey League Sportsnet player of the year, McDavid had 97 goals, 285 points in 166 career regular season games (1.71 points-per game) in three seasons in the Ontario Hockey League.
Profile: McDavid deserves all the comparisons to Crosby
