Mock Draft In Ted Kulfan's Eyes

09/23/2020 at 1:47pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

There’s still plenty of time for trades (and there will likely be many of them), and teams might prefer someone else as they get closer to Oct. 6.

But this is how The Detroit News sees the first round unfolding in our mock draft 1.0.

2. Los Angeles Kings: Quinton Byfield, C, Sudbury (OHL). Byfield joins a deep Kings’ prospect pool and could someday replace Kings’ star center Anze Kopitar.

3. Ottawa Senators: Tim Stutzle, LW, Mannheim (Germany). Stutzle could arguably be ready for the NHL quicker, and some scouts like him better than Byfield.

4. Detroit Red Wings: Jamie Drysdale, D, Erie (OHL). The Wings need help everywhere — literally every position. With a puck-moving defenseman so important these days, Drysdale can’t be passed on.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
