ProSportsBlogging.com’s 2011 NHL Mock Draft

Posted By Corey Krakower On Jun 20 2011 @ 9:40 pm In Around The Rinks | No Comments

With the Stanley Cup Playoffs now finished, the fun stuff really begins! It’s the NHL offseason. Players can be bought out until June 30, teams can make trades and have plenty of cap space to do so and free agency opens on July 1. Like almost every other year, team’s offseason plans are defined during and after the NHL draft, especially this year in Minnesota.

In what is regarded as a deep draft but not heavy on high-end raw skill, many teams have had discussions about trading up, trading down or even trading to get immediate help. There will likely be a flurry of trades made in the next week leading up to the 2011 NHL Entry Draft because of that.

The first round is set, the prospects are just about done going through interviews, and so now it is time to present ProSportsBlogging.com’s 2011 NHL Mock Draft that will take place Friday, June 24 at 7pm in Minnesota.
