2013 NHL Mock Draft – September Edition
I’ll be doing a monthly mock draft to update you guys on the top prospects and their progress throughout the year. I’ll rank the Top 15 only for the first few months of the junior season and move on to the full 30 after the World Junior Championships. The reason being by that time there’ll be more distinct separation between the Top 30 and the following 30. So here’s September’s Edition:
1. Nathan MacKinnon - The conseneous number choice at this point, could be best prospect since John Tavares
2. Seth Jones- Big defensemen playing with Portland of the WHL can do it all.
3. Sean Monahan - Elite blend of size and skill
4. Rasmus Ristolainen - The fact he’s logging upwards of 20 minutes a game in the Finnish League is telling of how mature he is already.
5. Sasha Barkov - Another big, super skilled forward. Only downside is teams might shy away because he’s Russian. Oh no wait, he’s Finnish.
6. Ryan Pulock
7. Hunter Shinkaruk
8. Curtis Lazar
10. Kerby Rychel
11. Max Domi
12. Andre Burakovsky
13. JT Compher
14. Valeri Nichushkin
15. Eric Roy
