We’ll have thoughts and analysis in this thread all day, as Matthew Somma (@CanesProspects) will give brief thoughts here on each Carolina pick before diving in a little deeper over the weekend.

In case you haven’t seen it all yet, here’s all of our pre-draft coverage to get you refreshed for the second through seventh rounds:

We will update this thread today with any Carolina pick as well as notable league-wide news, trades and selections.

Carolina Hurricanes Picks

Round 2, Pick 60

  • Gleb Trikozov, Forward, Russia

Matthew Somma’s Thoughts: “Gleb is a fantastic pickup for the Hurricanes. Could be a legitimate 60-point player at the NHL level given how he processes the game and acts on it. Needs work, but the Canes have all the time in the world to wait.”

Round 3, Pick 71

  • Alexander Perevalov, Forward, Russia

Matthew Somma’s Thoughts: “Perevalov is another solid gamble. He has a ton of skill but hasn’t caught up mentally at times. The Canes take a risk because hockey sense is hard to teach, but based on skill alone, Perevalov can play.”

Round 4, Pick 101 (acquired in DeAngelo trade)

  • Simon Forsmark, Defenseman, Sweden

Round 4, Pick 124

  • Cruz Lucius, Forward, Grant, Minnesota

Round 5, Pick 156

  • Vladimir Grudinin, Defenseman, Russia

Round 6, Pick 171

  • Jakub Vondras, Goaltender, Czech Republic

Round 7, Pick 205

  • Alexander Pelevin, Defenseman, Russia

Matthew Somma actually already wrote a profile on Pelevin, which you can check out here. A quick excerpt on Pelevin from that: “Pelevin is a player with a lot of untapped potential. He has the skating, physical play and smarts in the defensive zone in order to play at the NHL level, but the biggest question is his upside. Pelevin has shown flashes of high-end play in the games that I’ve watched, but nothing on a consistent basis. Right now, he’s a safe, stay at home defenseman with the potential to play on your third pairing in time. If he’s developed properly, I could see a top penalty killer with some offensive potential.”
