2013 NHL MOCK DRAFT- APRIL 14TH, 2013: Round 1

After the Stars win against the Sharks on Saturday and the standings were updated, I took the time to draw up a Mock Draft of how this summer's draft may play out. Obviously, I can't foresee any draft day trades, so the order is based on the NHL Standings on April 14th, 2013. (I took the liberty of assuming the Bruins make the Eastern Conference Finals.)
