    Day 3 Recap

    The NHL Entry Draft is starting to see some surprising picks.

    New Jersey Devils went ahead and select Russian powerforward Valentin Zykov. He was only projected to be select a few picks later, the Devils love his the all-round package he brings to the ice: grit, shot and two-way play. There are questions about his ultimate offensive upside but it seems the Devils are fine knowing that he is a safe but gritty prospect.

    The Bufalo Sabres, the first team to select a prospect with a second pick went for a high risk/high reward prospect in Anthony Mantha. With the selection of a safe but physical Nikita Zadorov, the team felt it had a strong enough forward depth (featuring Mikael Grigorenko, Johan Larsson, Zegmus Girgensons etc.) to gamble on a prospect that scored 50 goals in the QMJHL. Talented but he has questions on consistency and work ethic.

    And possibly the biggest surprise so far is the Ottawa Senators selection in Shea Theodore. Theodore lacks muscle to play consistently well defensively, his offensive potential is off the charts. His passing accuarcy is breath-taking and the Senators could use another offensive prospect to partner up with Erik Karlsson.

    But it did not stop there, one last pick of the day was by the Detroit Red Wings with another surprise pick. Jacob De La Rose a well-experienced junior player in Sweden, was selected by the Red Wings for his ability to wreck havok along the boards and on the forecheck.
