The 2015 NHL Entry Draft concluded on Saturday afternoon. As a closing post on the many picks and trades at this year's draft, this post is an index of every prospect profile published at ILWT for this year's draft class, organized by pick.
The Devils went into the 2015 NHL Draft with six picks and came away with a top forward prospect, two forwards, a defenseman, and a goalie. This post is a summary of what the Devils did this year and a reaction to what they did overall.
The Devils select 19-year-old forward Brett Seney out of Merrimack College with their 6th-round draft choice. Seney is fast, he was productive as a freshman until injuries struck, and he got passed over in last year's draft before being picked today.
Tonight is the second day of the 2015 NHL Draft, which will consist of rounds 2 through 7. Barring any trades, the N.J. Devils will pick 36th, 41st, 67th, 97th, and 157th overall. This is an open post where readers can discuss all of the action.
Tonight is the first day of the 2015 NHL Draft, which is the first round. Barring any trades, the New Jersey Devils will pick sixth. This is an open post where readers can discuss what the Devils should do, what they did, and what's going on.
The 2015 NHL Entry Draft is this week and mock drafts have been released from all sorts of places in anticipation of who goes where in the first round. This post reviews 37 of them and determines the most likely pick for the Devils: Mathew Barzal.
Julius Nattinen is a Finnish winger who split time between Finland's first- and second-tier professional leagues this season. He is a touted as a strong two-way center with some skill and smarts. Could he be a fit for New Jersey?
Lawson Crouse has been a lightning rod for debate all season as some feel he is a sure fire top 10 pick while others feel he should go later in 1st round. This profile will take a look at him and see if he makes sense for the Devils.
For a change of pace, today's prospect profile will feature a goaltender. Hailing from Canada and currently playing in the WHL for the Portland Winterhawks, Adin Hill is a highly ranked goalie prospect. Should the Devils spend a pick on a goalie?
Have you ever said to yourself, "You know what the Devils need...a lightweight hard-hitter from Sheboygan." Well if you have, then you've not only said something no one else has, but you have also foreseen the profile of Collin Peters.
Born and raised in the city where he currently plays major junior hockey, Deven Sideroff is an interesting prospect that projects to go in the later rounds of the draft. As a right wing, should New Jersey be taking a close look at him?
Lukas Jasek is a speedy forward out of the Czech Republic, but with limited minutes playing in highest Czech league and a disappointing U18 WJC, there are some question marks that remain with his play. Is he a fit for the Devils in the late rounds?
Mikko Rantanen is the top-rated European skater according to Central Scouting Services and will likely be the first European player selected at the 2015 NHL Draft. This profile looks at what TPS Turku's big right winger could bring to the table.
Mathew Barzal is a top talent in this year's NHL draft. A center playing in the WHL for the Seattle Thunderbirds, he has been rated just a little after when the Devils are supposed to pick. Should they take him at #6? Let's check him out and see.
Kameron Kielly is a versatile two-way forward currently playing for the Charlottetown in the QMJHL He isn't an elite talent, but he's a strong defensive forward who can also contribute on offense and special teams and could be a solid late-rounder.
Returning to forward prospects today, Roope Hintz is a tall Finnish left winger. There is a lot to like about his game, and he has been considered a scorer. But is he worth it for New Jersey to spend a second round pick on? Let's take a look.
Ranked as the second-highest defense prospect in this draft behind Noah Hanafin, Ivan Provorov is projected to be a high first round draft pick due to his pedigree. Already seen as a complete defenseman, would it be wise for New Jersey to draft him?
