Preds Complete 2019 Draft
September 16, 2019
The Preds entered the 2019 draft with 4 picks. Pick #11 in the first round as well as a 4th round pick and a pair of 5th rounders.

In the 1st round, the Preds were delighted to see that LW Matthew Boldy was still available. According to McKeen's Boldy is a forward with good size,a lethal shot, and very good playmaking skills. He has been killing penalties and cycling through all the lines in the National Development Program being productive in any role required. There isn’t anything that he doesn’t do well, making him a legitimate five tool winger. Heading to Boston College next year, where he will get to play around half an hour from his hometown, I don’t expect that he will remain on campus. He could be ready after one season, two tops. He projects as a likely first liner and a possible All Star.

In the 4th round, the Preds drafted Russian goalie Mikhail Berdin. His Manitoba Moose teammates call him the “Birdman,” and it’s a fitting nickname for the Russian-born goalie who left the nest when he was barely a teen, moving from Ufa to just outside Moscow — over a thousand kilometres away. Originally from Ufa, Russia, the 20-year-old has spent the last two seasons with the Sioux Falls Stampede. This season he went 24-13-5 with a 2.65 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage in 45 games.

With the 134th pick, the Preds drafted right handed defenseman Mac Hollowell. Hollowell is a 20-year-old defenceman coming off his fifth and greatest Ontario Hockey League campaign. He has embraced the undersized, late-bloomer tag, wearing it like a badge of honour.

Strengths: skating, passing ability, heady zone exits.

Areas in need of improvement: Gap control, limiting larger forwards’ movement in the corners, boxing attackers down low to snuff out the cycle.

With the 147th pick, the Preds drafted another right handed defenseman by the name of Dylan Coghlan. Coghlan is a dynamic offensive defenseman who put up spectacular numbers in the Western Hockey League (WHL) with the Tri-City Americans. He went pro last season and his game translated seamlessly. Coghlan finished with a respectable 40 points in 66 games for the AHL’s Western Conference Champion. Expect him to spend at least another year in the AHL while making a case for a future promotion. Dylan Coghlan in a nutshell — good size with dynamic puck skills and room to grow in his own end.
