NHL Draft Mock: Final First Round Predictions

9 of 11

22. Pittsburgh Penguins: Nikita Scherbak

Scherbak is a different kind of player but one the Penguins could definitely use. He’s got a big body and drives hard to the net to create scoring chances.

The Avalanche could use some skilled young defenceman to help bolster their team. Their offence and goaltending are sound, but their defence needs work.

24. Anaheim Ducks: Marcus Pettersson

The Ducks need to think about defence first right now and that’s why they go with Pettersson. He has the potential to be a future star on the blue line.
