BLOG: Breakdown of Oilers Draft Picks

A look at all the picks the Oilers currently hold in the 2017 NHL Draft

by Chris Wescott / EdmontonOilers.com Head Writer

The Oilers currently hold eight picks in the 2017 NHL Draft. They are without a second-round pick, which now belongs to the Boston Bruins due to compensation for Peter Chiarelli.

The Oilers have two third-round picks, picking up the extra selection in the Nail Yakupov trade. Yakupov was traded to the St. Louis Blues on October 7, in exchange for Zach Pochiro and a conditional pick, which became a third-rounder when Yakupov failed to score more than 14 goals. He had three in 40 games.

The Oilers also have two in the fifth round, with the extra coming via the February 24, 2016 trade of defenceman Philip Larsen to Vancouver.

The Oilers hold just one pick in rounds one, four, six and seven. They select 22nd overall in the first round. Here is the projected order of picks for the Oilers as of today.

ROUND 1 - 22nd Overall

ROUND 3 - 82nd Overall (From St. Louis)

ROUND 3 - 84th Overall

ROUND 4 - 115th Overall

ROUND 5 - 126th Overall (From Vancouver)

ROUND 5 - 146th Overall

ROUND 6 - 177th Overall

ROUND 7 - 208th Overall
