Canucks Select RW Connor Lockhart 178th Overall

Another Swedish defenceman! Just kidding, he’s a winger from the OHL. Is this an actual late round steal?

Just to throw us all a curveball, the Canucks make their second pick of the Sixth Round one that again, could be a sleeper pick that turns out pretty good.

While Connor Lockhart missed a season because of the OHL cancelling play this past year, he was originally taken 3rd overall in the OHL Priority Draft by the Erie Otters.

With an opportunity to mature, and get a full season under his belt, Lockhart could be a guy who fits into the style that the Canucks are starting to evolve into.

One pick left, as the Canucks will have the 201st pick in Round Seven.
