2014 NHL Draft: The Picks
(Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports)

The spreadsheet below has been designed to provide you with a list of your team’s (and all other teams) prospects that were selected in the 2014 NHL Draft , the City of Brotherly Love Draft, in Philadelphia. Each player is linked to the statistics from Elite Prospects so you can look up the prospect in the future and see how he is doing. As well, interviews and profiles from THW are referenced (117 prospects covered) in case you want to become more familiar with the prospect. The spreadsheet is fully downloadable so you can make any adjustments to it to your liking. We have also added a second tab with the prospects listed in draft order for those of you who prefer their information presented in that format. Enjoy!
