Mock draft 1.0 tells us who the Blackhawks should pick in each round of the 2024 NHL Draft

The Chicago Blackhawks have another early pick and plenty more in the 2024 NHL Draft. So, who should they seriously consider drafting when the final week in June rolls around?

Round 2B: Terik Parascak, RW/Prince Georges Cougars

I was ecstatic to see Terik Parascak last this long, given his 105-point and 43-goal outburst. If he ends up falling this far in June, general manager Kyle Davidson may have gotten a sound scorer at a great value. 

Round 2C: Ollie Josephson, C/Red Deer Rebels

The versatile forward hasn’t put up the same numbers as Terik Parascak and Lucas Pettersson, but he also enjoyed a seven-goal, 28-point jump in regular season productivity. For now, Ollie Josephson would be a high-potential pick if he fell to the Blackhawks at this spot, but he could factor in as a second-round steal. 

Round 3: Eemil Vinni, G/HIFK 18

The question regarding Eemil Vinni is whether he will build on a mildly successful season in Mestis when he finished the year with a 0.892 save percentage and a 2.72 GAA if he makes it to Liiga in 2024-25. As the Blackhawks have some solid goaltenders in their system now, some may say it’s a reach to take a netminder here. But, in reality, it’s okay to reach for one, even if they serve as nothing more than a potential trade package later.
