I thought it would be interesting to scan over some of the plethora of mock drafts and ratings out there to see who shows up most often at number seven.

Just a reminder, we will have an open thread starting on Friday afternoon and running through the night, as well as all day Saturday, for draft discussion, (and anything else that might come up.)  Brian LeBlanc will be covering the draft from Philadelphia and Cory and I will be chiming in from the PNC.  Hope to see everyone here!

The following are the seventh selections or seventh rated prospects along with the corresponding site:

Bob McKenzie's rankings - Jake Virtanen

McKeen's - Jake Virtanen

Craig Button- Haydn Fleury

ISS Hockey - Jake Virtanen

My NHL Draft - William Nylander

Mike Morreale ( - Nick Ritchie

Adam Kimelman ( - Jared McCann

Steve Hoffner ( - Nick Ritchie

Future Considerations - Nikolaj Ehlers

Corey Pronman (ESPN Insider) - Jake Virtanen

Too Many Men on the site -  Nick Ritchie

The Hockey Writers - Nick Ritchie

Hockey Tracker - Jake Virtanen

Chicago Daily -  Jake Virtanen

Junior -  William Nylander

Larry Fisher - Michael Dal Colle

Junior Hockey News - Jake Virtanen

Rotoworld (Gus) - Haydn Fleury

Western Conference Scout ( - Haydn Fleury

Eastern Conference Scout ( - Michael Dal Colle

Draft Site - Brendan Perlini

Sports Bank - Kasperi Kapanen

NHL Files - Nikolaj Ehlers

Hockey Center Ice - Nick Ritchie

Draft Site - Nikolaj Ehlers

Kevin Allen USA Today - Kasperi Kapanen

Red Line Report (via USA Today) - Jake Virtanen

Bleacher Report - Nikolaj Ehlers

Hockeys Future - William Nylander

SB Nation -  Brendan Perlini

So, Jake Virtanen shows up eight times, Nick Ritchie, six times, Nikolaj Ehlers four, and Nylander, Fleury, and Dal Colle three times each.  All of this doesn't mean too much, but it is interesting to see.

If any of you find others, please feel free to list them in comments.

Last weekend, I participated in a mock draft on TSN1260, Edmonton Radio and chose Michael Dal Colle, as he was the best player available when it came to my choice.  Check that out here:  TSN1260 Mock Draft
