For this week's edition of "The '14 File," we'll look at the contents of the "Future Considerations" 2014 NHL Entry Draft Guide. "FC" ranks their top 210 prospects for the draft, and has a two-round mock draft as well. Surprisingly, the players ranked at the Blues' draft positions are not the players they choose for the Blues in the two-round mock.
The chart below lists the Blues' nine picks over the seven rounds, the player that "FC" ranks in that position, and for picks 21, 33 and 52, the player that "FC" chose for the Blues in their two-round mock.
