3 of 6

Chris’s First Five

  • 1. Buffalo – Owen Power
  • 2. Seattle – Matthew Beniers
  • 3. Anaheim – Brandt Clarke
  • 4. New Jersey – Simon Edvinsson
  • 5. Columbus – Kent Johnson

Who will Yzerman take at #6?

The Detroit Red Wings will take the best player available that is not a goaltender.  My pick at six is Luke Hughes.  Assuming that Power, Beniers, Edvinsson and Johnson are gone, Hughes makes perfect sense for Detroit.  He is a left shot defense prospect who would fit nicely into the top 4 on defense with Filip Hronek, Moritz Seider and Albert Johansson.

The Detroit Red Wings select defenseman Luke Hughes with the sixth overall pick
