2018 NHL Mock Draft: Ryan Merkley is boom or bust for the New York Islanders at pick 12

Ryan Merkley of the Guelph Storm goes to the New York Islanders at 12th overall in the Hockey Wilderness mock draft. The New York Islanders of 2017-18 were disappointing to say the least. Despite a 40-goal season by Anders Lee, a brilliant rookie season by Mathew Barzal, and a solid 84-point-season by John Tavares they failed to make the playoffs once again. Struggles with goaltending were a big reason to their shortcomings, but also poor depth on defense and offense also contributed. Now with Lou Lamoriello hired to run all hockey operations with the team, Hockey Wilderness will use their...

2018 NHL MOCK DRAFT: Islanders Take forward Jesperi Kotkaniemi with first of back-to-back picks

The Islanders will try to bring back the player that is both their captain and one of their top scorers, but it seems unlikely their moves will end with either bringing him back or saying goodbye. If they bring him back, the Islanders are a team that likely just gave out a mega-deal to this year’s free agent jewel...

Mark Hunter’s draft record: too soon to tell

A list of every player drafted by Hunter along with where they are today. Since people are talking about it, this is all the players drafted while Mark Hunter was with the Leafs and where they are now. To put this in perspective, it’s way too soon to judge on the performance of picks outside the first round because most of them dating back to just 2015 are not in the NHL. 2017 Only one player chosen outside the first round has played more than 10 NHL games. He is Sebastian Aho, the defender on the Islanders, and he was drafted at age 21 and has played 22 games. 2016 Five players have...
