On June 24th, 2011, the Edmonton Oilers came to the podium in Minnesota and announced Ryan Nugent-Hopkins as the first overall selection in the 2011 NHL entry draft.

Gabriel Landeskog, Jonathan Huberdeau and Adam Larsson were picked second, third and fourth overall respectively. Each with a different playing style, the jury could be out for years as to who the best player from the 2011 draft eventually turns out to be.
