Scouting Combine reshapes Mock Draft

by Staff Writer / New Jersey Devils

The 2016 NHL Scouting Combine gave teams access to some of the top players available for the 2016 NHL Draft.

The interview process and medical and fitness testing can spark discussions and change draft lists. It certainly did for's draft experts, Adam Kimelman and Mike G. Morreale, who released updated mock drafts Monday.

Both have revised their predictions for the Devils' plans with the 11th-overall pick:

Clayton Keller, C, USA U-18 (USHL)

Devils general manager Ray Shero said he's looking to add skill to the organization and Keller (5-10, 163) is a great place to start. He had 107 points in 62 games with USA Hockey's National Team Development Program under-18 team this season. He'll continue to hone his skills next season at Boston University but it might not be too long before he adds his high-end ability to the Devils lineup. Deputy Managing Editor Adam Kimelman

Tyson Jost, C, Penticton (BCHL)

The 5-11, 189-pound forward is committed to the University of North Dakota for 2016-17. A left-shot forward, he had 42 goals, 62 assists, 104 points, 14 power-play goals and seven game-winning goals in 48 games. He also led Canada with six goals and 15 points in seven games at the 2016 IIHF World Under-18 Championship, and was named the tournament's best forward. Staff Writer Mike Morreale
