Pittsburgh Penguins: 2015 NHL Mock Draft

2 of 7

1. Edmonton Oilers

148. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound center’s 120 points for the Erie Otters were just nine less than the Ontario Hockey League leader despite playing 21 fewer games. Scouts also like that he creates chances for his teammates and plays well on special teams. Will he be like Wayne Gretzy, and be the one to lead Edmonton back to hoisting the Stanley Cup?. Center. Erie (OHL). Connor McDavid. 1. player

2. Buffalo Sabres

Center. Boston U (NCAA). Jack Eichel. 2. player. 12. This 6-foot-2, 196-pound center led all college players with 71 points. The Hobey Baker winner got the job done for the Terriers as his NCAA-best 1.77 point-per-game average was the best by a freshman in the last 20 years.

3. Arizona Coyotes

Center. Erie (OHL). Dylan Strome. 3. player. 121. I think they Coyotes need offense to help put people in the seats and McDavid’s teammate has the potential to become a dominant first-line franchise center. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound center had 45 goals and 129 points for the Otters. It will be difficult for Arizona to pass on him here.

4. Toronto Maple Leafs

5. Carolina Hurricanes

player. 109. The Hurricanes need to create more offense and the 5-foot-11, 160-pound center from the Ontario Hockey League can deliver. He put up 44 goals and 126 points and a few observers think has great vision, passing ability, and is highly creative with the puck.. Right Wing. London (OHL). Mitch Marner. 5
