Potential Preds: 2019 NHL Draft Scouting Report - Centers

Get to Know Five Centers Nashville Could Take with the 24th Pick in the 2019 NHL Draft

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

Last summer in Dallas, Nashville's table on the Draft floor didn't see any action until the fourth round. They won't have to wait nearly as long this time around.

The Predators hold the 24th overall selection in the 2019 NHL Draft, and barring any last-minute changes, Nashville brass will make their way to the stage in Vancouver late in the first round to select a player with potential to become a star in Music City.

Rather than focusing on a certain position, Preds Assistant General Manager and Director of Scouting Jeff Kealty has said the club almost always calls the name judged by the group to be the best available.

So, will that individual play the middle of the ice? Here are five centermen who could slip on a Gold jersey at Rogers Arena on June 21.
