Picks #21-30 of the 2012 Beer League Mock Draft are waiting for you...
Flame me over at:
No.21 - Slater Koekkoek, D
Koekkoek has got the size, compete and ability to be an excellent 3/4 man for years to come. He's a good two-way defenseman who will compliment what the Sabres have already.
Pens No.22 - Tom Wilson, RW
The pens can't pass on this tough power forward. He's not just a coke machine, he can also contribute but anyone thinking of messing around with the stars will think twice now. The Pens/Flyers
rivalry will be ramped up now.
no.23 - Brady Skjei, D
A smooth skating offensive dman will take some time to develop but that's OK because the panthers have Brian Campbell
and Dmitri Kulikov running the PP at the moment but Campbell won't be around forever.
No.24 - Colton Scissons, RW
The Bruins love those heart and soul players and Scissons is just that. He's aggressive and a hard worker, he also possesses a pro caliber shot. Anything to get back to those days of the BIg Bad Bruins.
No.25 - Stefan Matteau, C
If I'm not mistaken his Dad also played for the Blues. Matteau is big and dangerous. By that I mean he can be a bit undisciplined. But he's got the tools to dominate and will start doing that in the QMJHL under the tutelage of his dad.
No.26 - Ludwig Bystrom, D
Vancouver's relationship with Swedish hockey players is known and they'll continue that by drafting Bystrom, a very calm and collected two-way blueliner from Modo.
No.27 - Scott Laughton, C
An excellent 3rd line shutdown center. Laughton was Nail Yakupov's shadow at the NHL's R&D camp last summer and an effective one at that. He's very responsible at both ends and has great composure. A very Dave Tippet player.
No.28 - Oscar Dansk, G
King Henrik can't play forever. Enter Prince Oscar. Dansk is 6'3" and has experience in North America playing for Shattuck St.Mary's before returning to Sweden to play for Brynas' Jr team. He's known as a big gamer.
No.29 - Andrei Vasilevski, G
The young russian is so athletic and never gives up on a shot. Martin Brodeur has one season MAYBE 2 left before he'll hang the pads up. This will give the young russian time to develop in russia before he comes over.
No.30 - Jarred Maidens, C
LA is pretty deep at most positions, so they'll go off the board a little bit and take a guy who didn't play much this year but he's got all the tools to be a great forward.
Well there ya have it. The 2012 Beer League Mock Draft is over and in a week it will probably look like a drunk made it.
Take Care everyone and have fun watching the draft.
