by Staff Writer / Calgary Flames


Peterson | Buye | Onysyk


Edmonton Oilers
Nail Yakupov, RW, Sarnia (OHL)
THE DIRT: Undisputed number one with this can't-miss prospect. The NHL hasn't seen a player this dynamic since Pavel Bure. 

Columbus Blue Jackets
Filip Forsberg, RW, Leksand (SWE)
THE DIRT: A solid two-way player with deadly offensive skills. The best Euro in the draft according to many NHL scouts.

Montreal Canadiens
Mikhail Grigorenko, C, Quebec (QMJHL)
THE DIRT: A pivot with a nice combination of skill and size. His game has rounded out nicely, playing his first season in North America.

New York Islanders
Alex Galchenyuk, C, Sarnia (OHL)
THE DIRT: Could have been number one or two if his knee injury hadn't kept him out of action for almost all of the past season.

Toronto Maple Leafs
Ryan Murray, D, Everett (WHL)
THE DIRT: Possibly the most cerebral player in the draft who has all the tools to become a top-two NHL blueliner for a long, long time.

Anaheim Ducks
Matt Dumba, D, Red Deer (WHL)
THE DIRT: Hard-hitting blueliner with potent offensive talent. His high-risk/high-reward style of play make him a game-changing prospect.

7 Minnesota Wild Morgan Rielly, D, Moose Jaw (WHL)
THE DIRT: Smooth skating rearguard has the ability to lead the rush and quarterback the powerplay.

Carolina Hurricanes
Cody Ceci, D, Ottawa (OHL)
THE DIRT: A big body with bullet of a shot finished second in OHL scoring among defenceman. A good fit for the 'Canes.

9 Winnipeg Jets Teuvo Teravainen, LW, Jokerit (FIN)
THE DIRT: A smaller forward who exibits a high skill set proved he can compete against men this year during his time with Jokerit.

10 Tampa Bay Lightning Jacob Trouba, D, USA U-18 (USHL)
THE DIRT: Solid blueliner with a nice mix of skill and grit who is a very strong skater. Look for Trouba to fill a hole in Tampa's back-end.

Washington Capitals (via COL))
Sebastian Collberg, RW, Frolunda (SWE)
THE DIRT: A dynamic forward with a quick release who had a strong WJC performance. Would fit in nicely with the Cap's skilled offence.

Buffalo Sabres
Griffin Reinhart, D, Edmonton (WHL)
THE DIRT: The hulking defenceman is a rare breed that combines high offensive skill and size. Blessed with skilled hockey bloodlines.

Dallas Stars
Derrick Pouliot, D, Portland (WHL)
THE DIRT: An undersized d-man that possesses a strong skating stride which makes him tough to knock off the puck.

Calgary Flames
Radek Faksa, C, Kitchener (OHL)
THE DIRT: Faska put up some solid numbers in his OHL rookie campaign. This giant pivot has the ability to score and uses his size well.

Ottawa Senators
Brendan Gaunce, C, Belleville (OHL)
THE DIRT: Has all the ingredients of a top line centre and his leadership, work ethic could get him into the show.

Washington Capitals
Hampus Lindholm, D, Rogle (SWE)
THE DIRT: A big defenceman who has an offensive flare. His lack of physical play may drop him a bit in the draft.

San Jose Sharks
Zemgus Girgensons, C, Dubuque (USHL)
THE DIRT: This hard-working pivot who can contribute offensively could compliment some of the Sharks finesse forwards nicely.

Chicago Blackhawks
Olli Maatta, D, London (OHL)
THE DIRT: His stock increased after London's Memorial Cup run in which he played a huge part. A composed puck-moving defenceman.

19 Tampa Bay Lightning (via DET) Pontus Aberg, LW, Djurgarden (SWE)
THE DIRT: A shifty forward with a quick release, strong work-ethic and good skating ability who played with men this year.

Philadephia Flyers
Matt Finn, D, Guelph (OHL)
THE DIRT: Intellegent defenceman who exibits strong leadership despite his age. Patient, shows poise with the puck and has vision.

Buffalo Sabres (via NSH)
Ludvig Bystrom, D, Modo (SWE)
THE DIRT: The Swede has the ability to slow the play down and make presice passes through the netrual zone. A strong skater.

Pittsburgh Penguins
Nicolas Kerdiles, LW, USA U-18 (USHL)
THE DIRT: A big power-forward that can bully his way into the slot and create chances. His agility and creativity make him dangerous.

Florida Panthers
Tomas Hertl, C, Slavia (CZE)
THE DIRT: A good finisher that has great vision and always seems to be in the right place at the right time. Had a strong WJC showing.

Boston Bruins
Andrei Vasilevski, G, Ufa Tolpar (RUS-JR)
THE DIRT: A big goalie that moves very fast for his size. Generated great stats over his young career with no indication of slowing down.

25 St. Louis Blues Thomas Wilson, RW, Plymouth (OHL)
THE DIRT: This rugged forward isn't afraid to use his size and push his weight around. He racked up 141 penatly minutes with Plymouth.

Vancouver Canucks
Colton Sissons, C, Kelowna (WHL)
THE DIRT: A forward that can put the puck in the net and play in his own zone. A strong leader who scored 26 goals this season.

Phoenix Coyotes
Tanner Pearson, LW, Barrie (OHL)
THE DIRT: A forward who decided to get serious about his hockey career after being passed on the past two years.

28 New York Rangers Slater Koekkoek, D, Peterborough (OHL)
THE DIRT: Registered some decent numbers despite playing on a weak Peterborogh team. Can log big minutes & contribute offensively.

29 New Jersey Devils Malcom Subban, G, Belleville (OHL)
THE DIRT: The goaltender has some upside and could be looked upon as a long-term replacement for the aging Martin Brodeur.

30 Los Angeles Kings Brady Skjei, D, USA U-18 (USHL)
THE DIRT: A rearguard capable of offensive production but his biggest asset is his skating. A smooth skater with incredible speed.
