    Welcome to the 2018 HFVHL Entry Draft!


    All picks will be tracked in the spreadsheet below:
    2018 HFVHL Entry Draft Spreadsheet
    Mobile Version
    Notes:
    1. This thread is strictly for making selections. If you wish to discuss picks or broadcast trade talks, do so in the main league thread or on Discord.
    2. 2020 draft picks may not be included in trades until the conclusion of the draft.
    3. If you are currently compliant with the roster limits, you do not need to worry about going over due to drafted players. The new roster limit (65 max) will go into effect at the conclusion of the draft.
    4. Please tag the next person -- either in your post or on Discord -- once you've made your selection. This will help ensure that the draft moves as quickly as possible.
    5. Picks can be made in the Discord if absolutely necessary, but please try to make your selections in this thread if possible. If you're worried about missing your draft time, you can always send in a list or ask another GM to make the selection on your behalf.
    6. Once the draft clock has started, rules on submitting purely draft pick trades involving OTC picks will be relaxed in order to avoid slowing the draft down. (Example: If Team A trades an on-the-clock pick to Team B for another pick, the trade can be posted by one and confirmed by the other to keep the draft moving.)
    7. Missed picks can be made up at any point after the GM has been skipped.

    Time Limits will go into effect on: Thursday, June 14th @ 8:00 AM PST

    Time Limits:

    3rd round (if necessary) - 2 hours
    4th round - 1 hour
    5th round - 30 minutes

    Best of luck to all of you! @Weylspin has the first selection in the 2018 HFVHL Entry Draft and may make his selection now.

    To start off we would like to thank Dallas for hosting the draft and to @Intoewsables for running everything. We would also like to thanks the IRL Buffalo Sabres for being bad enough to win the 1st overall pick. Now to get the draft underway with our first selection.

    :wings are proud to select from Frölunda HC of the SHL, Defenceman Rasmus Dahlin

    First of all, we're excited to be hosting this draft and for what is in store ahead of us. Thanks to our lovable commissioner @Intoewsables for his seamless and great work over the last year. We wish the best to all of the teams and their draft picks over the next little while.

    With the 4th Overall pick in the 2018 HFVHL Entry Draft, the Dallas Stars are pleased to select,
    from the
    University of Michigan, D Quinn Hughes!

    Dallas Stars Scouting Staff

    "The American offensive defenseman has an incredible skating ability and handles the puck with elegance. His breakout and skill is amazing to watch, just imagining him in the NHL doing such things can make scouts wet their pants. He also has some defensive worries, but his skating skill and potential is very high and he has the tools to defend well enough to stick around. His amazing vision and creativity really sets his game apart from other defenders in the draft and catches lots of attention. He's always looking to quickly gather the puck out and break out of his zone as fast as he can to catch the opposition off guard and sometimes uses it as a good opportunity to flip breakout passes and creative dishes to his teammates. Hopefully he can add some muscles mass and strength to his game as well as another inch or two of height which could do him wonders. One of the best assets to his game is his smart decision making. He chooses the best time to make his passes and when to rush up the ice with urgency. Quinn is the first of 3 brothers to be drafted and was born into a very talented hockey family. I could see Quinn taking a year or two before being ready for the NHL, but his skating prowess could be very helpful when landing with a big league team."

    @Lucbourdon and the Las Vegas Knights are up.

    :stars are proud to select with pick 14,
    from Vaxjo Lakers of the SHL, LW/RW Dominik Bokk
    [​IMG]

    "Dominik Bokk has a very raw package of skill that consists of a few high level skills. He loves to challenge defenders one on one and prefers to skate at defenders, trying to beat them with his nimble set of quick hands, deftly moving the puck and setting up teammates with the looks that he creates by beating defenders and drawing them away. He has a nice wrist shot that he uses often to beat goalies on breakaways or off of the wing from quick feeds on one timers. He has some nice vision off the wing and will often set up teammates with creative passes. Dominik has an elite offensive skilslet that could see him as a high end winger in the NHL in due time, but he does need to work on his skating. He doesn't have very high top end speed and his edges need a bit of work, but it's fixable for sure. With a bit of skating rejuvenation, Bokk could become a very high threat at the NHL level, as he's already shown playing in the Swedish top tier with men. In the SuperElit, he was well over a point per game and showed extreme promise."


    and with pick 15,
    from USNTDP, LW Joel Farabee
    [​IMG]

    "Joel Farabee is a very hard working, high energy winger who plays a very smart game. He is a fast skater who uses his hockey IQ to make smart plays and hustles to get involved in plays. He doesn't have explosive acceleration and could really use it to add another element to his game that would really help him out. He has a slightly above average shot and some decent playmaking abilites. He seems like he needs a few years of development before making his way to the NHL, though it really depends how long it takes him to perfect his skating, and surely some power skating training will do wonders for him. He seems a little easier to project than most for me as a top 6 winger as long as he develops the way he's been trending. He doesn't really have can't miss skill oozing out of him, but he's got a good work ethic and a motor that keeps him going."

    Winnipeg is pleased to select, from the Drummondville Voltigeurs, center Joe Veleno. He has a complete two-way game and a high-degree of offensive awareness. He is another strong piece down the middle for the Jets, joining fellow youngsters Pierre-Luc Dubois, Elias Pettersson, and Cody Glass as cornerstones of the team's future.
