Not many, if any, predicted Mark Jankowski would be the newest Flames prospect but after trading down from 14 to 21 in Friday nights first round, Jay Feaster and co. had their mind set and made the pick, going off the board. It was a bold move, one that has many wondering if it was best for the Flames organization.
My annual mock draft concludes today with picks 1 to 10. The Oilers have the 1st overall pick for the third consecutive season but whether they keep the pick or who they pick is still up in the air. It looks to be a busy draft and a great way to kick-off the NHL off-season.
In part two of my annual mock draft, picks 11 thru 20 are highlighted as I try to predict which prospects go where. Day two of my mock draft brings the Calgary Flames front and center at number 14. Will they take a forward or will they take a defenseman? Derrick Pouliot is a name to watch for when Jay Feaster and co. make their selection.
