Fun Facts From 2013 NHL Draft: Seth Jones Slides, Canucks Make a Deal
After a historically well-played Stanley Cup Finals and Playoffs, the NHL got back to its exciting ways this weekend with the 2013 NHL Draft. The biggest headline moving into this weekend was pro-ready defenseman Seth Jones, yet three teams decided to pass on the 18-year-old phenom. With that being said, one team cashed in on Jones and could be signing the blues because of it.
With that being said, many think that the Nashville Predators got a steal with Jones at pick No. 4. Unable to make the postseason in a shortened 2013 campaign, the Preds are hoping that this young defenseman can turn the tables in the near future.
Also picking in the top five, the Colorado Avalanche took their first step back to the Stanley Cup Finals. With Patrick Roy now manning the bench things are going to change in the mile-high city and Nathan Mackinnon is immediately looked upon as the savior. Believe it or not, the first overall pick shares a hometown with Sidney Crosby — Avalanche faithful will be happy if Mackinnon is even half of the player that Crosby has been.
The first round winded down with the Chicago Blackhawks who started the offseason by selecting an Illinois native with the 30th overall pick. Ryan Hartman will be hoisting a Stanley Cup in no time if indeed he can break into the professional ranks within the next few years.
Last but not least, the Vancouver Canucks finally put an end to their goaltender dilemma and traded away Cory Schneider for the ninth overall pick. Time will tell if the Canucks regret this move or if Vancouver will miss the stability of Schnieder for years to come.
