2.) William Nylander, RW, Sodertalje (Sweden)

3.) Ivan Barbashev, LW, Moncton (QMJHL)

4.) Blake Clarke, LW, North Bay (OHL)

5.) Aaron Ekblad, D, Barrie (OHL)

6.) Nikolai Goldobin, RW, Sarnia (OHL)

7.) Michael dal Colle, C, Oshawa (OHL)

8.) Anthony DeAngelo, D, Sarnis (OHL)

9.) Leon Draisaitl, C, Prince Albert (WHL)

10.) Nick Schmaltz, C, Green Bay (USHL)

11.) Matthew Mistele, LW, Plymouth (OHL)

12.) Jared McCann, C, Sault Ste Marie (OHL)

13.) Brayden Point, C, Moose Jaw (WHL)

14.) Tyson Baillie, C, Kelowna (WHL)

15.) Roland McKeown, D, Kingston (OHL)

16.) Sonny Milano, C, USA U-18 (USHL)

17.) Luke Philp, C, Kootenay (WHL)

18.) Tim McGauley, C, Brandon (WHL)

19.) Josh Ho-Sang, C, Windsor (OHL)

20.) Jakub Vrana, LW, Linkoping (Sweden)

21.) Jake Virtanen, C, Calgary (WHL)

22.) Sam Bennett, LW, Kingston (OHL)

23.) Ryan Pilon, D, Lethbridge (WHL)

24.) Nick Ritchie, LW, Peterborough (OHL)

25.) Jack Glover, D, USA U-18 (USHL)

26.) Kasperi Kapanen, LW, KalPa (SM-Liiga)

27.) Brandon Robinson, LW, North Bay (OHL)

28.) Haydn Fleury, D, Red Deer (WHL)

29.) Adam Olias Mattsson, D, Varmdo (Sweden)

There will only be 29 picks in the first round this year as the New Jersey Devils have to forfeit their selection as a result of penalties for circumventing the Salary Cap in the signing of Ilya Kovalchuk.
