2015 NHL Entry Draft – Colorado Avalanche

INS: Mikko Rantanen (Pick 10, TPS, FIN), Anthony John (AJ) Greer (Pick 39, Boston College, H.EAST), Nicolas Meloche (Pick 40, Baie Comeau, QMJHL), Dean-Christophe Beaudin (Pick 71, Royun-Noranda, QMJHL), Andrei Mironov (Pick 101, Dynamo Moscow, RUS), Sergei Boikov (Pick 161, Drummondville, QMJHL), Gustav Olhaver (Pick 191, Rogle. Jr., SWE-JR.), Carl Soderberg (Boston Bruins), Nikita Zadorov (Buffalo Sabres), J.T. Compher (Buffalo Sabres), Mikhail Girgorenko (Buffalo Sabres)

OUTS: Ryan O’Reilly (Buffalo Sabres), Jamie McGinn (Buffalo Sabres)

Adding Soderberg isn’t the worst move, but that meant the end of Ryan O’Reilly in Colorado. The loss of O’Reilly doesn leave a hole, but could Grigorenko soon fill that void? Some solid picks made, but not the best of drafts.

2015 DRAFT RATING: C+
