|SKINNY: Kulikov's game-breaking ability too much to pass on.|

|20||Peter Holland, C, Guelph (OHL)|
|SKINNY: Depth up the middle only hole in Flames' organizational depth.
|21||Robin Lehner, G, Frolunda (Sweden)|
|SKINNY: Flyers are tired of annual summer hunt for a goaltender.

|24||Jacob Josefson, C, Djurgarden (Sweden)
