Canucks 2023 Draft Coverage

Barring any trades, the Vancouver Canucks will select 11th overall at the 2023 NHL Draft. The only other time they held that pick was way back in 1982 when they drafted Michel Petit. He went on to have a long and winding NHL career suiting up for 10 teams and playing 827 games. Historically, it has been known to produce a few stars too, like Jarome Iginla and Anze Kopitar. So, hopefully, the Canucks can get lucky and grab someone like that in 2023.

2023 NHL Draft Vancouver Canucks Draft Preview

While the Canucks won’t be able to get their hands on Connor Bedard, Adam Fantilli, or Leo Carlsson, they should still find value at their spot at 11th overall. The 2023 Draft class is loaded with talent – especially in the first round. Before the Filip Hronek trade robbed them of their second first-round pick and an additional selection in the second round, they had the chance to add three elite talents to their prospect coffers. Unfortunately, they will now have to wait until the third round to make their second choice of 2023. In total, they have seven picks across the seven rounds, but only one in the top-75.
