    Buffalo took Claude Lemieux's son Brendan
    Florida took Jayce Hawryluk

    And St. Louis takes - Ivan Barbashev! Great pick and a steal at that spot

    Tampa takes Dominik Masin next, using the pick they dropped down to when they gave the Islanders Josh Ho-Sang

    There is a run on goalies now - three goalies gone within four picks:

    34. Calgary - Mason McDonald
    36. Vancouver - Thatcher Demko
    37. Carolina - Alex Dedeljkovic

    I think this means that NHL teams are seeing that G's are going - and may be worried that they don't slip to them with a later pick. You may see this run continue (you see this happen all the time in fantasy drafts, right? haha)

    As soon as I say that, Washington takes a goalie 39th - Sabres traded 39th pick to Washington for No. 44 and No. 74

    39. Washington - Vitek Vanecek

    So four goalies in six picks.

    At 43 (Brendan had him going at 45 in the Mock Draft), the Coyotes take Ryan MacInnis - Al's son

    Here is what the Fantasy Prospects Report has to say about Nashville pick (at 42) Vladislav Kamenev:


    Vladislav Kamenev, LC (Magnitigorsk, RUS)
    A ranking for Vladislav Kamenev needs to be prefaced with the Russian Passport disclaimer, especially since he is competing outside of North American rinks. But there’s plenty of promising reports indicating that Kamenev could end up being one of the best Russians from the ’14 draft. Captain of the Under-18 World Championship squad, Kamenev isn’t your prototypical flashy Russian as he enjoys physically engaging and employs a strong defensive game. In the physical areas of the rink, Kamenev seems to excel showing good puck battle compete and advanced protection skills. He can unleash a hard shot but his offensive upside isn’t overly enticing. Overall, Kamenev owns the projectable pro skills and versatility that teams seek out.
    Upside: Versatile two-way forward (Nikolai Kulemin), 25-30-55+
    Rank: 44

    Lots of goalies flying off the board now. Interesting pick by the Sabres with Jonas Johansson, since they already have a couple young goalies on the way.

    Curious what is known about Maxim Letunov... Six two, one fifty five, that's pretty thin.

    Looks like it's for Guunarsson and a pick.
