Harry How

Come one, come all to the 2013 NHL Mock Draft. Today we unveil the Edmonton Oilers' pick.

Hey all! Welcome to another instalment of Arctic Ice Hockey's annual NHL Mock Draft.

Over the next thirty days, we will attempt to telepathically channel the minds of NHL General Managers as they complete their final rankings in preparation for the 2013 NHL Draft being held June 30, 2012 in Newark, NJ.

Without further adieu, we present our loyal readers with the seventh overall pick of Arctic Ice Hockey's 2013 Mock Draft.

Craig McTavish: With the seventh overall selection in this years draft, the Edmonton Oilers are pleased to select...


Elias Lindholm

Centre / Brynas (Elitserien)

6-0

181

December 2, 1994

Hometown: Boden, SWE

Shoots: Right


Rankings: CSS (3 EUR), ISS (7), TSN (9), Hockey Prospectus (6)

The Skinny: Craig McTavish is the new sherrif in town and he'll be looking to make a splash this offseason in hopes of bolstering his club. With Shawn Horcoff and Ales Hemsky out the door, a forward with the skill set of Lindholm would be well worth the investment.

Hockey Prospectus:

"Lindholm, like Barkov, is a uniquely advanced player for his age. He had a special season for an 18-year-old in the Swedish Elite League, often recording over 20 minutes per game as a premier scoring option for Brynas. He has high-end offensive skills, displaying plus skating ability. He regularly shows his speed in transition, and he can pressure defensemen quickly on the forecheck. Lindholm has great hand-eye coordination and he can really dangle with the puck."
