Day 5 Recap
The draft has finally reach the second round and this is where things get extremely interested. Players that people thought were sure-fire first rounders find themselves still available and teams are going to get active to grab their guys.
There were barely any surprises in the selections. Perhaps the selection of Zach Fucale by the Wild raised a few eyebrows because while they do have a need for a strong potential 1A goalie, they have bigger problems on offense and defense and there are still a few names out there that would have fit nicely.
The second round only had one selection but it was by the Panthers, who are already on cloud nine after drafting Nathan Mackinnon. Mackinnon is has both high upside and low risk, so Florida decided they were comfortable to go for a high risk/high reward pick in Tommy Vannelli. He has some worth to do physically and defensively and will need to prove he can play at tougher levels but could give the Pathers a homerun pick.
That is it for the first round! Time will now find itself speeding up!
