26. Montreal Canadiens

The Canadiens have a few defensemen that could retire soon so it would be wise for them to draft someone they can develop in the coming years.. Defense. Sherbrooke (QMJHL). Jeremy Roy. 26. player. 152

27. Anaheim Ducks

105. This would be a slight drop for him but there’s no place where he can learn to play the center position better in than Anaheim. He gets to watch Ryan Getzlaf and see what it’s like to play in a winning environment.. Center. Prince George (WHL). Jansen Harkins. 27. player

28. Tampa Bay Lightning (from New York Rangers)

23. This is definitely a risk for the Lightning but Dergachev is a big winger that plays with intelligence. He can force his way into everything and is a great quality pick.. Right Wing. St. Petersburg (MHL). Alexander Dergachev. 28. player

29. Philadelphia Flyers (from Tampa Bay Lightning)

Jake Debrusk. 29. player. 68. Debrusk has a smooth shot and is good at two-way play. He is small but still gets physical down low and is good at creating in open ice.. Left Wing. Swift Current (WHL)

30. Arizona Coyotes (from Chicago Blackhawks)

Tri-City (WHL). Brandon Carlo. 30. player. 121. The Coyotes should be looking for defense here since they will have Strome at third and since they traded Yandle to New York last season. Carlo is a physical defender that can shut you down.. Defense
