2016 NHL Draft
Mock Draft: Picks 1-30
Talent-rich draft pool extends deep into first round

*Boston owns San Jose’s 2016 1st round pick from the Martin Jones trade.
*Pittsburgh keeps its 2016 1st round pick and transfers its 2017 1st round pick to the Toronto Maple Leafs if they do not qualify for the playoffs. If the Penguins make the playoffs, they must surrender the pick to the Maple Leafs from a condition in the Phil Kessel trade.
*Carolina owns Los Angeles’s’ 2016 1st round pick from the Andrej Sekera trade.
*Arizona owns the New York Rangers’ 2016 1st round pick from the Keith Yandle trade. The pick is lottery protected, so if the Rangers do not qualify for the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Rangers would keep their 2016 first round pick, and the Coyotes will receive the Rangers’ 2017 1st round pick (unprotected).
