Mock Draft: Torie Peterson

by Staff Writer / Calgary Flames


Onysyk's mock draft | Top ranked prospects


Edmonton Oilers
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, C, Red Deer (WHL)
THE DIRT: The most talented player in the draft, the Oilers can't pass up a player whose vision has been compared to Wayne Gretzky.

Colorado Avalanche
Adam Larsson, D, Skellefta (SWE)
THE DIRT: Said to be the second coming of Nicklas Lidstrom & ready to jump into the NHL, Larsson will aid the Avs blueline immensely.

Florida Panthers
Gabriel Landeskog, LW, Kitchener (OHL)
THE DIRT: A ton of fire power with a physical edge, Landeskog does it all with ease and will likely see himself in an NHL sweater this fall.

New Jersey Devils
Jonathan Huberdeau, C, Saint John (QMJHL)
THE DIRT: Incredible offensive upside with hands that have been compared to Patrick Kane's. The Devils could use his offence.

New York Islanders
Sean Couturier, C, Drummondville (QMJHL)
THE DIRT: He brings size, skill and vision. The Islanders youthful forward group will get another kid to add into the mix this fall.

Ottawa Senators
Dougie Hamilton, D, Niagara (OHL)
THE DIRT: With 12 goals, 58 points and a +35 rating,  the two-way defenceman simply does it all. Ottawa could hit a homerun with him.

7 Winnipeg Ryan Strome, C, Niagara (OHL)
THE DIRT: Fun to watch & incredibly talented (33 g, 106 p last season), Winnipeg will make a splash with their first draft in 16 years.

Columbus Blue Jackets
Ryan Murphy, D, Kitchener (OHL)
THE DIRT: Columbus desperately needs to add a skilled blueliner & Murphy fits the bill. Had 26 goals through 63 games.

Boston Bruins (via TOR)
Nathan Beaulieu, D, Saint John (QMJHL)
THE DIRT: The Bruins will add long-term stability to their blueline by adding an excellent puck moving defenceman.

Minnesota Wild
Mika Zibanejad, C, Djurgarden (SWE)
THE DIRT: A power forward with soft hands and a commitment to defensive responsibility, Wild would be remiss not to nab this pivot.

Colorado Avalanche (via STL)
Jonas Brodin, D, Farjestad (SWE)
THE DIRT: Great skater, very composed and can log workhorse minutes. With some development, Brodin could be a top-four d-man.

Carolina Hurricanes
Duncan Siemens, D, Saskatoon (WHL)
THE DIRT: The Canes blueline gets a whole lot tougher with the addition of the most physical defenceman in the draft. 

Calgary Flames
Sven Bartschi, LW, Portland (WHL)
THE DIRT: High-end skills mixed with great vision makes Bartschi a potential top-six forward.

Dallas Stars
Mark McNeill, C, Prince Albert (WHL)
THE DIRT: A very versatile power forward with excellent hockey sense. McNeill has been compared to Ryan Getzlaf for his style of play.

New York Rangers
Joel Armia, RW, Assat (FIN)
THE DIRT: The youngest player on Assat, Armia held his own against men and was the team's sixth highest scorer.

Buffalo Sabres
Zack Phillips, C, Saint John (QMJHL)
THE DIRT: Phillips may not be the prettiest skater but that doesn't stop him from scoring. Had 38 tallies through 67 games.

Montreal Canadiens
Nicklas Jensen, RW, Oshawa (OHL)
THE DIRT: Like Michael Grabner, Jensen may need some time to develop but has an overwhelming abundance of raw skill.

Chicago Blackhawks
Tomas Jurco, RW, Saint John (QMJHL)
THE DIRT: Unbelievably creative, Jurco would add more flash to Blackhawks forward group.

Edmonton Oilers (via LAK)
Jamieson Oleksiak, D, Northeastern (HE)
THE DIRT: Oilers need depth & size on the blueline. Oleksiak, at 6'7 and 244 lbs, adds just that. Physically unparalleled in the 1st round.

Phoenix Coyotes
John Gibson, G, USA U-18 (USHL)
THE DIRT: Goaltending is a concern for Phoenix so Gibson will give them a reliable prospect to work into their system.

Ottawa Senators (via NSH)
Oscar Klefbom, D, Farjestad (SWE)
THE DIRT: Not only has great vision, size, and hands but a character player as well. Will add a lot to the Sens blueline depth.

Anaheim Ducks
Joseph Morrow, D, Portland (WHL)
THE DIRT: This blueliner logged a ton of minutes this year and proved himself capable of being a workhorse. Can put up a ton of points.

Pittsburgh Penguins
Brandon Saad, LW, Saginaw (OHL)
THE DIRT: Had a so-so 2010-11 season but has potential to be a steady second liner, posting 60-70 points per year.

Detroit Red Wings
Scott Mayfield, D, Youngstown (USHL)
THE DIRT: Lots of talent but needs to work on his hockey sense. Detroit's development system could help him greatly.

Toronto Maple Leafs (via PHI)
David Musil, D, Vancouver (WHL)
THE DIRT: Plays GM Brian Burke's preferred style: truculent. Hard-nosed, competitive and very strong.

Washington Capitals
Boone Jenner, C, Oshawa (OHL)
THE DIRT: Plays a very dependable, low risk game. Jenner is great a faceoffs and would add some offense to a checking line in the NHL.

Tampa Bay Lightning
Mark Scheifele, C, Barrie (OHL)
THE DIRT: Risky pick due to Barrie's woeful year, could be the steal of draft if he's as talented on a good team as he was on a bad one.

28 San Jose Sharks Matt Puempel, LW, Peterborough (OHL)
THE DIRT: Despite having his season cut short thanks to hip surgery, Puempel still managed 34 goals through 55 games this season.

Vancouver Canucks
Mario Lucia, LW, Wayzata (USHL)
THE DIRT: A two-way forward, Lucia would aid the Canucks offensive depth. Scored 30 through 27 games at the USHL level.

Toronto Maple Leafs (via BOS)
Tyler Biggs, RW, USA U-18 (USHS)
THE DIRT: Gritty, big and surly, Biggs can annoy the opposition to no end. He has the skill to be an consistent offensive threat as well.
