Highest climber: Philadelphia selected Samuel Morin with its 11th pick. The Rimouski defenseman was ranked 76th among North American skaters at the mid-term by NHL Central Scouting. His final ranking was 23rd.
Longest faller: Vancouver got Hunter Shinkaruk with its 24th pick. The high-scoring Medicine Hat forward went into the draft ranked sixth among North American skaters.
