Let’s get you set for Day 2 of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft.

Round 1 of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft is in the books and it was a wild, wild night in the National Hockey League as we witnessed some shock picks and a plethora of blockbuster trades. It was truly crazy.

More from Puck Prose

From the likes of Seth Jones, Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Pavel Buchnevich being moved earlier in the day to certain teams going off the board early in the First Round – hello Ottawa Senators – Friday was just a wild, wild day.

The first two picks went as planned as the Buffalo Sabres took Michigan defenseman Owen Power with the No. 1 overall pick and the Seattle Kraken selected center Matthew Beniers with the No. 2 overall selection, but the Anaheim Ducks provided us with the first surprise of the night after taking forward Mason McTavish at No. 3

Not to be outdone, however, the Senators went completely off the board with the No. 10 overall pick by taking power forward Tyler Boucher, who was projected to be a Second or Third Round pick.

However, the most shocking of all selections came at the end of the First Round as the Montreal Canadiens, for some unknown and baffling reason, took Logan Mailloux with the No. 31 overall pick, despite the forward declaring himself unavailable for the Draft after being charged in Sweden for taking and distributing an offensive photo without consent during a consensual sexual encounter last November.

It was an awful look for Montreal and for the NHL in general, and it was a moment that sadly underlines the fact that hockey has a major cultural problem that still needs addressing.

Anyway, we now move on to Day 2 where Rounds 2-7 will take place, and we’ve got you set with everything you need to know for the day ahead…

Best Player Available

There are a number of intriguing prospects still on the board by the time Round 2 starts, but the one with the highest ceiling is arguably Finnish forward Aatu Raty.

The consensus No. 1 overall pick a year or so again, Raty endured a tough  2020-21 season in Finland and saw his Draft stock plummet as a result, and he will now hope to go in Round 2 after completely slipping out of the First Round.

At this point, taking Raty would be a significant gamble but he boasts tremendous offensive potential and upside, and if put in the right situation then he could flourish and morph into a potent top-six forward with a boatload of skill.

What Else You Need To Know

The Buffalo Sabres will start things off on Day Two as they did on Day One, and they could opt to take forward Aatu Raty if they feel like taking a risk, or they could go for a safer option. Whatever road they head down, however, they will have the chance to add yet more talent to their farm system.

Given the lack of scouting this year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we could see more teams look to move up in order to take a safer bet rather than take gambles later on in the Draft, while there could be more blockbuster trades.

Next. 3 big needs for the Kraken to address. dark

The Sabres are expected to deal forward Sam Reinhart to the Florida Panthers, while they are also taking calls on Captain Jack Eichel, and we will see if there are any other big moves throughout the day.
