The 2014 NHL Fans (Mock) Draft

We hit twitter to see what the NHL Draft possibly held, from the perspective of the fans. We took 30 NHL fans, including myself, and had them pick a respective team. We had them act as the GM on draft day, and take a shot at who they thought their team should take.

Each team picked a player according to the team they were managing needs, and here were the results.

1. Florida Panthers – Aaron Ekblad (@DiehardNYIFan)
2. Buffalo Sabres – Samuel Bennett (@NotHarsty19)
