The Carolina Hurricanes and general manager Ron Francis proved to have no tricks planned for the 2014 NHL draft, making all seven selections on Friday and Saturday without executing a single trade.

The 'Canes invested in the future with first-round selection Haydn Fleury; although at least one more season away from being NHL-ready, the defenseman greatly improves the Hurricanes' incoming generation in their weakest unit.

Six additional picks were made on Saturday, adding two Plymouth Whalers players and the son of Glen Wesley, among others, to the team's 2014 draft class.

How effective was the Hurricanes' use of each of their seven choices, and what quality of player was selected with each? A breakdown and grade for each Hurricanes' pick is available on the following slides.
