NHL Draft 2013: Live Results, Trades, Analysis and Reaction
The 2013 NHL draft is ongoing, and Nathan MacKinnon is the first overall selection for the Colorado Avalanche. The most surprising news of the day will likely be the slide of Seth Jones, who fell all the way to the Nashville Predators at fourth overall.
Aleksander Barkov went to the Florida Panthers at No. 2 and Jonathan Drouin was selected at No. 3, forcing Jones down to the Preds at four.
For the second straight year the hometown team stole the show though. Before we could make it out of the top-10, it was announced that the New Jersey Devils had traded their ninth overall selection to the Vancouver Canucks for goaltender Cory Schneider.
David Bolland was also traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the Nino Niederreiter saga finally came to a close as the New York Islanders traded him to the New York Islanders for Cal Clutterbuck.
This ends our coverage of the first two rounds of the draft.
It's a toss-up between which event was more shocking: the fall of Seth Jones to No. 4 overall or the trade of Cory Schneider, but outside of those two events, the first 60 picks more or less went off without a hitch.
Zach Sanford is the final selection of the second round.
Boston Bruins make their first selection of the day at No. 60, taking defenseman Linus Arnesson.
Detroit Red Wings make the pick they received from the San Jose Sharks for moving back a few spots in Round 1. They select Tyler Bertuzzi. He has a lot of sandpaper.
St. Louis Blues trades up and selects William Carrier. He was projected as a first-rounder earlier in the year and slid a bit, but he's still a good player.
Chicago's cap-clearing spree continues.
CHI trades Michael Frolik to WPG.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) June 30, 2013
Marc-Olivier Roy has been selected by the Edmonton Oilers. He's very quick and likes to get to dirty areas.
Artturi Lehkonen is an undersized forward, so he should fit right in with the Montreal Canadiens. He's a very skilled player, though. Great finish and strong skater.
Philippe Desrosiers is the newest Dallas Star. Another strong center to add to the mix for a team that seems to be looking to add some size.
Washington Capitals select Madison Bowey, an outstanding and quickly improving defenseman. Plays a good two-way game and is slick in the offensive zone.
Justin Bailey is from Buffalo and has been drafted by his hometown Sabres.
Columbus Blue Jackets grab Dillon Heatherington. He's a strong shutdown defender that improved greatly over the last six months of play.
Zach Nastasiuk has been selected by the Detroit Red Wings. He's a project, but the ceiling is high: twenty-goal scorer that is a physical two-way player.
Tommy Vannelli is a strong puck-moving defender. A little on the small size, but the skill is there. He'll continue to iron out his game at the University of Minnesota, but he's the newest St. Louis Blue.
Gustav Olofsson is a larger defender, and he's Minnesota's guy at No. 46. He's 6'2'' and takes care of business in his own end.
Nick Sorensen is the newest Anaheim Duck. He's a quick player that can make some noise when he has a little bit of space.
Pittsburgh Penguins take goaltender Tristan Jarry. Fellas on TSN say that he reminds them a lot of Jim Howard of the Detroit Red Wings.
Columbus trades pick 44 to Pittsburgh for picks 50 and 89.
Most feel that Bolland coming to Toronto signals the end of Tyler Bozak's time with the team.
David Nonis gets a nice upgrade overall to his centres, although he's not a No. 1, with Dave Bolland for 3 picks. Bye Tyler Bozak.— David Shoalts (@dshoalts) June 30, 2013
Winnipeg Jets on the clock with their first of three second-round selections, and they grab super-talented but undersized center Nicolas Petan. He tied for the WHL scoring title. Seems like a steal at this stage of the draft.
New Jersey Devils finally make their first selection and the crowd goes wild for the 42nd overall selection, Steve Santini.
Philadelphia Flyers add a solid defenseman in Robert Hagg. He could have been a top-rounder and is a steal at 41.
Dave Bolland is now a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Chicago receives a third-rounder and two fourth-rounders for him.
