With the first 31 picks in the books, Day 2 of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft begins Wednesday morning. Teams will spend rounds two through seven filling out their prospect depth charts with the hopes that they hit a home run for the future.

As with most years, some high-end prospects that were believed to be selected int he first round have fallen to day two. Talented forwards like Noel Gunler, J.J Peterka and Jan Mysak are still available while defenders like William Wallinder and Ryan O’Rourke are still on the board for teams drafting early in the second round.

Based on the consensus rankings from HEOTP, here are the best remaining prospects that are available going into day two:

Noel Gunler - Ranked 23

Jan Mysak - Ranked 25

JJ Peterka - Ranked 26

William Wallinder - Ranked 29

Thomas Bordeleau - Ranked 30

Helge Grans - Ranked 31

Jeremie Poirier - Ranked 32

Ryan O’Rourke - Ranked 33

Marat Khusnutdinov - Ranked 35

Topi Niemela - Ranked 37

Roni Hirvonen - Ranked 38

Emil Andrae - Ranked 39

Whether it’s an undersized defender like Niemela or Andrae or a boom/bust forward like Gunler or Bordeleau, there are some very good players available at the top of the second round. That means that we could see a lot of movement in the early part of day two as teams will likely be trying to trade up to grab a kid that they expected would have been drafted in the first round.

Day 2 of the draft begins at 9:30am MDT.

The order for round two is as follows:
