NHL Entry Draft 2021

Five bold predictions for the 2021 NHL Entry Draft

Every summer, the NHL world descends upon a North American city for the draft week festivities and the potential for madness is simply electric. You can feel it in the air. You can feel it in your bones. Like an old man predicting the weather. And just because we're later in the summer and the descending is once again happening virtually doesn't mean the chance for crazy is any less. 

We've almost become accustomed to audible gasps from the draft floor crowds. Barrett Hayton being selected fifth overall in 2018. Moritz Seider going sixth in 2019. Fallers, risers, mega-trades. It's all on the table.

As such, I bring to you the third annual Five Bold Predictions for the NHL Draft column. The previous two iterations came to you via DobberProspects, but today we welcome the EP platform to the fun.

Now let's get wild!
