NHL Mock Draft season heats up with our second first-round prediction of the offseason. 

We are less than two weeks out from the 2024 NHL Draft at the Sphere in Las Vegas and despite this being considered a weak class behind the no-doubt No. 1 pick, Macklin Celebrini, this could be a frantic selection process filled with numerous trades. 

There is little chance that this will be the final order of teams in the first round, but for now, we’ll work with what we have.
