Boston College Eagles in the 2014 NHL Draft: Final Mocks

What will be the fate of Boston College’s players and recruits in the 2014 NHL Draft which begins tomorrow?

Thatcher Demko, Sonny Milano, Alex Tuch, and perhaps other current and future Eagles are in shape to have very good drafts, but there is always the matter of where each particular player will land.

Some exciting times are ahead for these young men.

Boston College in the 2014 NHL Draft: Draft Forecast

When it comes to a consensus on which team our Eagles will call home, it’s quite clear that there is none. Sonny Milano had two hits with the St. Louis Blues, but it’s otherwise a grab bag of different teams with different needs.

Here’s what we can suggest, however:

• Sonny Milano and Alex Tuch both look like sure-thing first round picks. Mid-first round for either one sounds about right, though there is no telling right now which one will go first. Expect them to get selected at roughly the same time.

• There is the possibility that Thatcher Demko will go in the first round, especially given that he is the best goalie in the draft, but the second round is just as plausible. He will probably be the last of the three to be taken if you believe the mock drafts, but will still get a relatively high draft selection to his credit.
