16. Edmonton Oilers (from Pittsburgh Penguins)

148. The Oilers are in desperate need of a goaltender. There’s been rumors linking Edmonton to Lehner in Ottawa and Lehtonen in Dallas. Samsonov is an incredibly talented goalie so it will probably be better for them to start with a young player and develop him.. Goalie. Magnitorgorsk (MHL). Ilya Samsonov. 16. player

17. Winnipeg Jets

Travis Konecny. 17. player. 30. After trading away Evander Kane, I would expect the Jets to look for another winger, hence the selection of Konecny here.. Right Wing. Ottawa (OHL)

18. Ottawa Senators

player. 91. Besides Karlsson, the Senators defense is kind of shorthanded. Zboril could end up being a major player in the NHL someday so he would be worth the risk for the Sens.. Defense. Saint John (QMJHL). Jakub Zboril. 18

19. Detroit Red Wings

20. Minnesota Wild

Center. USA NTDP (USHL). Colin White. 20. player. 98. White fits best at the center position so he should be able to flourish with all of those talented wingers in Minnesota.
