2013 NHL Draft

George and I will be updating the draft picks as they happen in this post.

We will stop after the first round and then you can follow the draft selections at TSN or NHL.com.

If trades happen during the draft today, they most likely will have their own blog post.

Also, when updating the draft selections in the first round, we will not be using a timestamp on them in order to save some time.

If you need broadcast information on the NHL Draft, you can refer to this post from earlier today.

Hopefully this draft goes as quickly as possible, teams will be on a 3 minute clock once their name gets called.  Teams can also use 5, five minute timeouts throughout the draft and they can by used all at once.  There will be clocks on the stage counting down either situation.

I was hoping that Zadorov would drop to 18.

The Sens pick Oil Kings’ Curtis Lazar at #17.  Two-way player.

Here comes the Wings at #18 and they trade the pick to SJ for picks #20 and #58.  I knew they were gonna do it, but I picked MTL.

That would give the Wings two picks in the second round, which is probably what they wanted to begin with.

So the Sharks pick Mirco Mueller with the #18 pick.

I think the Wings were looking at Zadorov, but since they lost that, they traded down.

Here we go again with the Jackets at #19 and they go with Kerby Rychel, son of Warren Rychel.  Remember this guy?

At #20, the Wings pick Val d’Or’s Anthony Mantha.  TSN says he’s a James Neal-type of player.  I really like this already.  This is a great pick.

So who is that now as far as forwards with size, skill, and sense with the Wings?  Sheahan, Jurco, Athanasiou, and now, Mantha?

At #23, the Caps go with Andre Burakovsky of Malmo.

i kind of wonder if the Lacavlier buyout isn’t holding up some trades that may otherwise have happened… especially for UFA negotiating rights? If he’s really making a dozen teams feel like they have a shot at him, he may tying their hands. I wonder if he plans on making a decision by the 5th?

With the #24 pick, the Canucks pick Hunter Shinkaruk.  TSN compares him to Zach Parise.

Classy Bergevin saying hello to the Quebecois in French.  And at #25, they pick Michael McCarron who is scheduled to go to WMU this fall.  Mike McKee is there, too, and they’re both 6’5”, 235 lb.  Andy Murray will have a big team.

See-Bee-Jays pick for the third time this first round at #27 and they select Marko Dano.  Kekolainen is making some serious picks.

CGY also picking for the third and final time at #28 select Morgan Klimchuk of Regina of the WHL.

DAL at #29 earned from the deal with BOS for Jagr and choose the Guelph Storm’s Jason Dickinson.  Kid dropped his stage jersey.

At #30, CHI picks Ryan Hartman from the Plymouth Whalers of the OHL.  Hometown kid from Illinois.

And we’re done.

Pretty good draft, but there were a few head scratcher picks, where teams moved up picks estimated in the 50’s to the first round.

Posted by timbits on 06/30/13 at 06:08 PM ET

At #48, the Wings pick Zach Nastasiuk of Owen Sound, son of a CFL player.  Sounds like the kid’s a two-way scrapper.

CGY got a 6’7”, 241lb. defenseman in Keenan Kanzig from Victoria of the WHL.  Biggest guy so far.

I’m hoping for some laser fast small dudes that these giants can’t get around. This tall guy with a massively long stick trend bothers me for some reason.
