NHL Draft 2014: Every Florida Panthers pick

The 2014 NHL Draft has come and gone, and the short term, and potentially long term, futures of hundreds of young men have been determined.

The top players went where they were expected to go, while some players made pretty substantial slides down the draft board, including a couple, like Ivan Barbeshev, who were ranked higher up on the final FanSided NHL Draft big board.

The Florida Panthers are a team that feels they are a lot better than a team “worthy” of the first overall pick. With the selection of Aaron Ekblad at the top and potential-filled forwards Juho Lammikko and Joe Wegwerth, the Panthers could have just set themselves up nicely to be out of this position for quite a while.

Rnd Pick Overall Team Player Pos Height Weight League Team
1 1 1 FLA AARON EKBLAD D 6′ 3″ 216 OHL BARRIE
2 2 32 FLA JAYCE HAWRYLUK C 5′ 10″ 190 WHL BRANDON
3 5 65 FLA JUHO LAMMIKKO RW 6′ 2″ 189 FINLAND-JR. ASSAT JR.
4 2 92 FLA JOE WEGWERTH RW 6′ 3″ 230 USHL USA U-18
5 23 143 FLA MIGUEL FIDLER LW 5′ 11″ 186 HIGH-MN EDINA HIGH
7 2 182 FLA HUGO FAGERBLOM G 6′ 6″ 202 SWEDEN-JR. U18 FROLUNDA U18
