“Whether it be the Philadelphia Flyers going off the board to take Samuel Morin, the rapid rise of a Swedish blueliner’s stock, or Anthony Duclair slip sliding to the third round, a mock draft can go off the rails quicker than Connor McDavid can execute a wraparound. This draft class could be one for the ages with many pundits comparing it to the revered class of 2003.”

The 2015 edition of the NHL Entry Draft on June 26th–27th takes place in the Sunshine State at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida. With the abundance of talent to be had, if it’s not apparent already, the future of hockey is indeed bright.

This marks the last edition of my series of mock drafts for this season. For the Stanley Cup Edition of the mock draft I stepped it up to a two round in-depth version. With colleague Larry Fisher setting the bar with a three round monster mock draft, I’ve added another round as well.

I’ve reverted to spreadsheet and PDF versions of this mock draft. In this post, I’ll present the picks with a subsequent post grouping the picks by team because of the abundance of picks mocked. The legend for the spreadsheet follows as well as a link to a concise, printable PDF version. Prospect Profiler Notes are included for each pick.

The remaining 29 prospects from The Next Ones Top 120 Final Rankings are at the end of the mock draft to show a sampling of other players who might have been considered and to highlight the talent that remains beyond the third round.
