With the first overall pick, Button handed hulking Barrie Colts defenceman Aaron Ekblad to the Florida Panthers. Having won the lottery, the Panthers add Ekblad to a solid stable of forwards that already boasts Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov. Picking second despite the NHLs worst record, the Buffalo Sabres had their pick of a number of top-end forwards and Button ultimately had them taking Kingston Frontenacs centre Sam Bennett. With the top two off the board, a run of Canadian teams commenced with five of the seven clubs selecting within the next seven picks. The Edmonton Oilers stepped up at No. 3 and took German centre Leon Draisaitl. The Prince Albert centre comes with superb vision and offensive punch and deepens an already loaded young forward corps. Edmontons provincial rivals, the Calgary Flames, used the very next pick on Sam Reinhart. The next Canadian team to hit the podium were the Vancouver Canucks at sixth overall. They didnt have to look far for their pick, grabbing B.C.s Jake Virtanen of the Calgary Hitmen. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Winnipeg Jets picked eighth and ninth overall respectively and each grabbed a winger to boost their forward ranks. The Leafs grabbed a blend of size and skill by selecting Peterborough Petes forward Nick Ritchie. Winnipeg went for pure skill with Danish winger Nikolaj Ehlers, who scored 104 points in just 63 games with the Halifax Mooseheads this past season. The final Canadian team to step up was the Montreal Canadiens, who used the 26th overall pick on Russian winger Ivan Barbashev of the Moncton Wildcats. Wholesale Canucks Jerseys . It was a loss.

The Scotsman was dismissed only five days after being told by the club he would remain in charge for the "foreseeable future." But despite that assurance, there was a caveat that Mackay had to heal his rift with Tan, which seemed unlikely given the owners apparent refusal to meet with him in recent months. The Malaysian owner and Mackay clashed over the dismissal of head of recruitment Iain Moody in October. And Mackays future at the south Wales club seemed to be doomed when he received an ultimatum last week from Tan to resign or be fired in an email that listed grievances against the manager. The lingering uncertainty over Mackays future fuelled protests againsst Tans running of the club at matches, with the tensions overshadowing Cardiffs first season in the Premier League. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys.
