11. Florida Panthers

11. player. 87. The Panthers franchise loved what Jagr did with his size in Florida so Zacha is perfect if they want to add more to their list of forwards.. Center. Sarnia (OHL). Pavel Zacha

12. Dallas Stars

119. This is certainly a stretch right here but the Stars are in need of more young guys for the blue line. I expect them to take the best defenseman available at #12 which should be Chabot.. Defense. Saint John (QMJHL). Thomas Chabot. 12. player

13. Los Angeles Kings

67. After an impressive performance at the world juniors, Meier gained lots of recognition. The Kings are in need of depth at the forward position and Meier could turn out to be a key forward.. Right Wing. Halifax (QMJHL). Timo Meier. 13. player

14. Boston Bruins

Youngstown (USHL). Kyle Connor. 14. player. 70. Connor is best at the center position but he has the ability to play any of the three forward positions which makes him very flexible. He would fit well with Bergeron and Krejci in the future.. Left Wing/Center

15. Calgary Flames

15. player. 112. He’s from Calgary and he beat out Barzal for the WHL rookie of the year award so he is certainly a fit in Calgary. He is a shorter forward but the playmaking ability in Calgary should have no problem creating chemistry with him.. Center/Right Wing. Kelowna (WHL). Nick Merkley
