If you haven’t already noticed, Fansided is holding a Mock Draft, and Columbus has already drafted 14th overall. In a couple of days we will be on the clock again for the 19th pick, and we need your help. We need you to channel your inner Jarmo and assist us in making the best choice at #19. Be sure to look over who has already been drafted (here), and check out who we picked at #14 (here).
There is a lot of talent still left on the board, but three teams still need to draft as well (Buffalo Sabres, Ottawa Senators, and Detroit Red Wings), which will obviously narrow down who we can select. With a defender already chosen at #14, offensive talent is now needed (channeling my inner Jarmo), with the draft being so deep, there are plenty of options available. Remember, these players could potentially be drafted by the three preceding teams.
- Alexander Wennberg: Center, 5th on the International Skater Rankings
- Andre Burakovsky: Left Wing, 6th on the International Skater Rankings
- Jacob De La Rose: Left Wing, 7th on the International Skater Rankings
- Frederick Gauthier: Center, 8th on the North American Skater Rankings
- Artturi Lehkonen: Left Wing, 9th on the International Skater Rankings
- Pavel Buchnevich: Left Wing, 10th on the International Skater Rankings
- Anthony Mantha: Right Wing, 10th on the North American Skater Rankings
- Zach Nastasiuk: Right Wing, 13th on the North American Skater Rankings
- Ryan Hartman: Right Wing, 16th on the North American Skater Rankings
Now we need you to do your homework, because you know Jarmo has, and vote on who you think would be the best choice for the Columbus Blue Jackets with the 19th overall pick. Feel free to make multiple votes (pick your top 3 choices), it is only fair since some of these players may not be available when it comes time for Columbus to pick. The Blue Jackets future rests in your hands (not really, but it is fun to think so), channel your inner Jarmo and vote…
Thanks For Voting!
