2016 NHL Entry Draft Results

The results are in! The 2016 NHL Entry Draft is complete. Great year for the league with 48 players selected, the most since 2012 (49). Loved the depth the league had to offer this year and apparently NHL scouts did too.

Below you can find the results for OHL players, as well as my draft ranking before the draft (for comparison's sake).

Some general thoughts on how the draft played out.

- Only one player from my top 20 fell out of the 3rd round (Tim Gettinger). So I suppose NHL teams were right in line with the way I saw things too.

- Four players from my top 40 went undrafted. Ben Gleason, Tye Felhaber, Domenic Commisso, and Kyle Maksimovich. Not surprised about Tye Felhaber, but I do think NHL teams will regret that one. I think he has an excellent bounce back year next year and finds himself drafted (ala Nathan Noel this year).

- Logan Stanley and Connor Hall were the two players that I had lower that went significantly higher. Again, not surprised. I know I was lower on them than others.

- Feel bad for Jakob Chychrun falling to the mid 1st round, but I think the Coyotes got themselves one heck of a player and prospect. Already an extremely motivated kid, Chychrun will be even more so now.

- Dmitri Sokolov fell all the way to the 7th round similar to Nikita Korostelev last year. I do understand why. Conditioning and speed are important in today's NHL. But I think Minnesota got themselves a great pick there. He showed very well late in the year and it will be interesting to see what type of shape he comes into OHL camp in next year.

here's a link to the full draft results
