2011 Frozen Ponderings NHL Mock Draft

With the 2011 NHL Entry Draft this weekend taking place a mere 15.5 miles from my home the proximity--along with some help from the NHL--is allowing me to cover the draft for the first time. In honor of the occasion I decided to craft my first-ever mock draft for the pure fun of it and see how it goes.

To be perfectly honest, I haven't seen a lot of these guys play but I've browsed a few of these things across the web and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in that regard. So I figured what the hell, why not jump into the mix? Without further adieu, I bring you the inaugural Frozen Ponderings NHL Mock Draft:
