Unless Craig Howson makes a significant trade, Day 2 at the NHL Draft is going to be a boring one for Edmonton fans. The wheeling and dealing done throughout the 2013-14 season leaves Edmonton with five picks on the second day:
4-1: William Lagesson, D, Frolunda - 6'3", 203 lbs. Profile here.
4-21: Zach Nagelvoort, G, Michigan - 6'2", 208 lbs. 20 years old.
5-10: Liam Coughlin, F, Vernon Vipers - 6'3", 201 lbs.
6-3: Tyler Vesel, F, Omaha Lancers - 5'11", 185 lbs.
7-3: Keven Bouchard, G, Val d'Or Foreurs - 6'3", 205 lbs.
Look for the Oilers to continue their long-standing tradition of drafting big players without a track record but with the always-desirable "hands" and "upside".
The catalog of picks the Oilers traded away include:
2-3, exchanged for David Perron
3-3, exchanged for Ben Scrivens, later exchanged for Marian Gaborik
5-3, exchanged for Viktor Fasth
5-17, exchanged for Nikita Nikitin, original acquired in exchange for Nick Schultz
