Part 3: 2012 NHL Mock Draft - The 2nd Round
31 – Columbus: Malcolm Subban, G, Belleville, Bulls, OHL
Blue Jackets land the elite of the elite of players in Yakupov, and Subban, with patience, may just be the elite netminder they desparately need.
32 – Edmonton: Oscar Dansk, G, Brynas Jr. (SWE-JR)
Oilers hope there are two Kings of Goaltending from Sweden.
33 – Montréal: Tom Wilson, RW, Plymouth Whalers, OHL
Wilson will be ranked lower in my rankings, but Habs need an injection of size to the forward ranks. Wilson brings grit, physicality, and size; however, the offensive upside is questionable.
34 – Tampa Bay (from Minnesota via San Jose): Andrei Vasilievski, G, Tolpar Ufa, MHL, Russia
GM Yzerman will still be looking for answers between the Lightnings pipes, but the future looks set with Vasilevski. I’m not a fan of drafting goalies in the first round, but the elite three goalies in this draft are quickly snapped up here in the second round.
35 – Toronto: Nicolas Kerdiles, F, USA NTDP
