2013 NHL Entry Draft Review

The 2013 NHL Entry Draft is in the books. Below we review the top 30 selections that were made on Sunday in Newark, New Jersey.

1)Colorado Avalanche: Nathan MacKinnon (C, Halifax-QMJHL): An argument can easily be made that Seth Jones would have filled a bigger "need" for Colorado, but Joe Sakic and Patrick Roy deserve credit for sticking to their draft board and taking the player they had ranked first overall. Along with perhaps having the highest ceiling in this draft class, MacKinnon is also seen as one of the safest selections. His defensive game is already extremely sound and he is a fantastic skater to go along with his tremendous offensive ability.
