2022 NHL Draft tracker: Rounds 2-7

·3 min read

Right from the start, the 2022 NHL Draft presented plenty of surprises.

Actually, the unexpected moments happened before the (often-surprising picks). The Blackhawks traded Alex DeBrincat to a Senators team hungry to climb the ranks.

There was a similar pattern before Round 2 of the 2022 NHL Draft kicked off. Once again, the Red Wings got out in front of the free agent goalie market by trading for (and then signing) Ville Husso.

Stay tuned at PHT for regular updates of the 2022 NHL Draft as teams motor through Rounds 2-7.

39. Chicago: Paul Ludwinski C Kingston Frontenacs [OHL]

49. Seattle: Jani Nyman R Ilves Tampere [SM-liiga]
50. Dallas: Christian Kyrou D Erie Otters [OHL]

51. Los Angeles: Jack Hughes C Northeastern University [H-East]

No, this isn’t another sibling in the line of Jack Hughes (Devils), Luke Hughes (Devils), and Quinn Hughes (Canucks). This Jack Hughes is the son of Canadiens GM Kent Hughes. There are even jokes about it.

52. Detroit: Dmitri Buchelnikov SKA St. Petersburg (Rus. Jr)
53. Anaheim: Tristan Luneau D Gatineau Olympiques [QMJHL]
54. Boston: Matthew Poitras C Guelph Storm [OHL]

61. Seattle: David Goyette C Sudbury Wolves [OHL]

62. Montreal: Lane Hutson D U.S. National Development Team [USHL]

2022 NHL Draft host Montreal gets what could be one of the nicer second-day steals. You’re not going to believe this, but Hutson fell largely because he isn’t large.

63. NY Rangers: Adam Sykora L Nitra MHC [Slovak]
62. Montreal: Lane Hutson D U.S. National Development Team [USHL]
63. NY Rangers: Adam Sykora L Nitra MHC [Slovak]
