Could Radek Faksa become the newest member of the Winnipeg Jets?

Hey all! Well, Draft Day is finally here! As you probably know by now, myself, Ryan and Tim have teamed up to provide you with a month's worth of Mock Draft coverage to better prepare our readers for the 2012 NHL Draft, beginning tonight in Pittsburgh, PA.

To put it bluntly, the Arctic Ice Hockey Mock Draft was a difficult endeavour. Rarely, if ever could we come to an agreement on players. Our first ten picks were made with "majority rules" in mind, but from picks eleven to thirty, we each took a turn making a draft pick as to expedite the process.

After the jump, we unveil the completed AIH Mock Draft, stacking it against the Community's draft and each of our own personal drafts.

Feel free to leave your opinions in the comments section and make sure you absolutely roast us if we get less than five picks right.


Ed. Note: Our draft coverage isn't over just yet. Stop by at 1:00PM CST for our NHL Draft Live Chat! Bring your knowledgable comments and questions; we'll be sure to counteract them with sarcasm and off-colour jokes.
