2021 NHL Mock Draft Update 7-22-21 Final


The National Hockey League Draft is July 23. Welcome to our first 2021 NHL mock draft, team needs have not been taken into account at this time. Some player descriptions have been filled out, but the others will be completed at a later date.

Far as we know, we’re the only mom and pop shop, small business style site on the whole world wide web that does a mock draft for all four major American sports. Here’s the links to the latest mocks for the NBA, MLB and NFL.

  1. Canucks don’t need a goalie. It’s the only position they actually have a skilled players and depth at.

  2. Canucks are def not drafting a goalie they have demko and a great prospect in dipietro

  3. I believe you have forgotten about a certain large Swedish defenseman…

  4. Andrew Higgins says

    If the Red Wings can’t land Owen Power, Simon Edvinsson would be a good pick. He’s a guy who can get through the hard-to-maneuver areas. His size would also make him valuable to the Power Play.

  8. John Parham says

    This will be an interesting draft. I believe there will be more busts than usual early and some stars coming out of the later rounds.

    With Benning calling the shots for the Canucks he’ll try to draft Spooner again. What a fool!
