Mock Draft: The fun starts after No. 1 in Button’s projection.

Some don’t even rank Adam Fantilli second in the draft, as he disappointed at the World Hockey Championships, as well as the World Under-20 Championship.
That’s what has some experts worried about the draft.
It would also be the ideal scenario for the CH, since they wouldn’t have to make a choice with Michkov and could therefore take their top pick, Will Smith.
I invite you to take a look at Button’s complete list for the first round, right here.
According to TSN’s analyst, Swedish forward Anton Wahlberg would be the Sainte-Flanelle’s choice at this spot.
The 6’3″ center has done well in a short sample in the SHL this season.
However, it’s not his ability to fill the net that best describes him, but rather his versatile play and physical involvement.
If Hughes doesn’t take a chance on Ryan Leonard at No. 5, Wahlberg could be an enviable option for a rugged forward who can play both center and wing.
Interestingly, according to Button’s list, several defensemen could be available, including Oliver Bonk, Theo Lindstein and Maxim Strbak. But there’s also giant-format goalie Michael Hrabal, ranked 26th, who catches my eye.
