November is upon us and we are a mere seven months away from the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Hockey continues on around the world as the dream of making it to the NHL still burns bright for many young men around the world. Over the next three days, I will break down a mock draft of the first round (top 30 selections) of the 2013 Entry Draft. Where will players such as Nathan MacKinnon, Seth Jones, Curtis Lazar and Hunter Shinkaruk go?

(iv) A player age 21 or older who had played hockey for at least one season in North America when he was age 18, 19 or 20. All eligibilty information can be found in the NHL rulebook or on
