Prospects Who May Be Available At The #4 Spot In The NHL Draft

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

The Los Angeles Kings, picking second, likely will choose between center Quinton Byfield (Sudbury, OHL) or winger Tim Stuetzle (Mannheim, Germany). The Ottawa Senators, at No. 3, are expected to take whoever is available between Byfield and Stuetzle.

That could prompt the Red Wings to decide between centers Marco Rossi of OHL Ottawa (5-9, 183) and Cole Perfetti of OHL Saginaw (5-10, 177), left wing Lucas Raymond of Frolunda in the Swedish League (5-11, 170) or defenseman Jamie Drysdale of OHL Erie (5-11, 174).

Or perhaps general manager Steve Yzerman will pull a surprise like he did with last year’s selection of Seider at No. 6 and take someone such as defenseman Jake Sanderson (U.S. National Team Development Program), right wing Alexander Holtz (Djurgardens, Sweden) or even goaltender Yaroslav Askarov (St. Petersburg, Russia).

Here is a look at what the latest mock drafts are projecting for the Red Wings:

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.
