Mock Draft: Adam Onysyk

by Staff Writer / Calgary Flames


Peterson's mock draft | Top ranked prospects


Edmonton Oilers
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, C, Red Deer (WHL)
THE DIRT: The Oilers are in serious need of an upgrade on defence but Nugent-Hopkins is just too good to pass up.

Colorado Avalanche
Gabriel Landeskog, LW, Kitchener (OHL)
THE DIRT: With another 1st round pick to come, the Avs can afford to go for offence with their first selection. Should fit well with Duchene.

Florida Panthers
Adam Larsson, D, Skelleftea (SWE)
THE DIRT: A big yet mobile d-man that can play at both ends of the ice. Larsson will be taking his talents to South Beach next season.

New Jersey Devils
Jonathan Huberdeau, C, Saint John (QMJHL)
THE DIRT: The Devils would have loved to snatch up the next Scott Stevens in Larsson but Huberdeau is far from a downgrade. 

New York Islanders
Dougie Hamilton, D, Niagara (OHL)
THE DIRT: Quick and agile, Hamilton will provide some help to Islanders young puck-moving forwards with his stay-at-home approach.

Ottawa Senators
Sean Couturier, C, Drummondville (QMJHL)
THE DIRT: Couturier put up 96 points in back-to-back seasons in Drummondville and was named league MVP for the regular season.

7 Winnipeg Ryan Strome, C, Niagara (OHL)
THE DIRT: The honour of Winnipeg's first draft pick since '95 goes to Strome. This flashy center is a pure goal-scorer.

Columbus Blue Jackets
Nathan Beaulieu, D, Saint John (QMJHL)
THE DIRT: The Jackets backend will benefit greatly from Beaulieu - a 2011 Memorial Cup Champion with the Sea Dogs.

Boston Bruins (via TOR)
Ryan Murphy, D, Kitchener (OHL)
THE DIRT: Perhaps a cure for Boston's ice cold power play during the playoffs? What he lacks in size, he makes up for in offensive talent.

Minnesota Wild
Sven Bartschi, LW, Portland (WHL)
THE DIRT: No holes in this Swiss winger's game. The WHL's Rookie of the Year is fun to watch and will help the Wild offensively.

Colorado Avalanche (via STL)
Duncan Siemens, D, Saskatoon (WHL)
THE DIRT: The Avs get the bruising defender they're looking for. Siemens will prove to be an intimidating presence on Colorado's blueline.

Carolina Hurricanes
Mika Zibanejad, C, Djurgarden (SWE)
THE DIRT: Give him a year or so to develop and this Swedish power forward should fit in nicely with the Hurricanes offense.

Calgary Flames
Mark McNeill, C, Prince Albert (WHL)
THE DIRT: A big center who scores timely goals and will help down the middle. Lit the lamp in two games at the Dome last season.

Dallas Stars
Joel Armia, LW, Assat (FIN)
THE DIRT: A PP specialist who gets the puck to the net night in and night out. Will help fill the void left by departing UFA Brad Richards.

New York Rangers
Zack Phillips, C, Saint John (QMJHL)
THE DIRT: An increase of over 50 points for the forward helped lead his team to the Memorial Cup and has vaulted him up in the draft.

Buffalo Sabres
Vladislav Namestnikov, C, London (OHL)
THE DIRT: A point-per-game player with the Knights, he has an effective wrist shot and has represented Russia on several occasions.

Montreal Canadiens
Mark Scheifele, C, Barrie (OHL)
THE DIRT: A big power forward is just what the doctor ordered for one of the smaller lineups in the NHL.

Chicago Blackhawks
Boone Jenner, C, Oshawa (OHL)
THE DIRT: Great hockey name. Not much to dislike about the skill set - provides instant size, strength & versatility up front for the Hawks.

Edmonton Oilers (via LAK)
Joseph Morrow, D, Portland (WHL)
THE DIRT: The young and talented group of forwards in EDM need some help on the backend and Morrow provides that. A steal at 19.

Phoenix Coyotes
Jonas Brodin, D, Farjestad (SWE)
THE DIRT: There must be something in the water in Sweden. Brodin will be the third Swede taken in the draft over 6'0.

Ottawa Senators (via NSH)
Jamie Oleksiak, D, Northeastern (HE)
THE DIRT: After helping Zdeno Chara develop into a top defender, the Sens hope to do the same with this monster who is 6'7 & 244 lbs.

Anaheim Ducks
Tomas Jurco, RW, Saint John (QMJHL)
THE DIRT: The fourth Sea Dogs player taken in the first round and arguably the flashiest player in the draft.

Pittsburgh Penguins
Brandon Saad, LW, Saginaw (OHL)
THE DIRT: Pittsburgh-born Saad is a slam dunk for the Penguins. Helped pace Saginaw's scoring with 27 goals and 55 points.

Detroit Red Wings
Ty Rattie, RW, Portland (WHL)
THE DIRT: A gifted top-six forward who is responsible defensively. Calgary-born Rattie will be a good fit in Detroit.

Toronto Maple Leafs (via PHI)
John Gibson, G, USA U-18 (USHL)
THE DIRT: Gibson was outstanding at the World U-18's and was voted best netminder with a 6-0 record.

Washington Capitals
Nicklas Jensen, LW/RW, Oshawa (OHL)
THE DIRT: Can play either wing and provides both power and speed up front. The Danish-born Jensen will fit in well with the Caps.

Tampa Bay Lightning
Philip Danault, LW, Victoriaville (QMJHL)
THE DIRT: The left winger should look pretty good alongside Stevie Yzerman's 2010 first rounder, Brett Connolly.

28 San Jose Sharks Scott Mayfield, D, Youngstown (USHL)
THE DIRT: One of the best d-men in the draft, San Jose will be thankful to scoop up Mayfield so late in the draft.

29 Vancouver Canucks Rocco Grimaldi, C, USA U-18 (USHL)
THE DIRT: The smallest player in the draft at 5'6, Grimaldi proved he can play bigger than his height last season, scoring 62 points.

Toronto Maple Leafs (via BOS)
Tyler Biggs, RW, USA U-18 (USHS)
THE DIRT: He's big and he's nasty. He's just the type of player Brian Burke is looking for.
