2012 NHL Mock Draft: Tracking the Stock of Projected 1st-Round Picks

With the first round of the playoffs done, the actual order of the 2012 NHL draft becomes a bit more predictable.

While the first 14 picks of the draft were determined by a lottery (which the Edmonton Oilers won), the remaining 16 are based on how far each playoff team makes it. 

What we know now is that none of the teams that are eliminated will have a spot lower than 26th, and the last four picks in the order belong to the teams that make it to the conference finals and beyond.

(Draft order explained here.)

For the sake of this mock draft, we will assume that out of the teams remaining, those with the highest regular-season point totals will go the farthest.

This updated mock draft will reflect this, plus the change in prospect stock due to recent performance.
