Now that the first round of the playoffs is done, I figured it would be a good time to put up my latest mock draft. With the first 23 spots of the 2020 NHL Draft locked in, it makes it a little easier to see how the draft could unfold. Utilizing my limited prospect knowledge, team construction, and numerous scouting sites with people that know more than I could ever fathom about these kids, I have put together my MockDraft2.0. All players listed are linked to their Elite Prospects page, an easy reference to learn more about the draft classes and prospects.
I know not everyone will agree with this mock draft, but that’s the fun of it.
Without further ado…
