Following a pair of trades, the Bruins made three consecutive selections in the first round – at Nos. 13 ( Jakub Zboril), 14 ( Jake DeBrusk) and 15 ( Zachary Senyshyn). They became the first team to make three straight picks in the opening round of the NHL Draft since the League instituted the universal draft in 1969.

The last team to make three consecutive selections in the first round of the NHL Draft was the Canadiens, who picked Michel PlasseRoger Belisle and Jim Pritchard at Nos. 1, 2 and 3, respectively, in 1968.

The Sabres then selected Jack Eichel from Boston University (Hockey East) with the second overall pick. The North Chelmsford, Mass., native became the highest-drafted U.S.-born player since Patrick Kane (Buffalo, N.Y.) and James van Riemsdyk(Middletown, N.J.) were selected first and second overall by the Blackhawks and Flyers, respectively, in 2007.

“It’s tough to put into words right now,” Eichel said. “Looking back on the entire year, it’s been the best year of my life, but until you hear your name called and you go on that stage and put a jersey on, there’s nothing like it. It’s an unbelievable feeling.”

The Oilers selected Connor McDavid from the Erie Otters (OHL) with the first overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, marking the fourth time in the past six years that the club made the top selection. The others: Taylor Hall in 2010 (Windsor Spitfires, OHL), Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in 2011 (Red Deer Rebels, WHL) and Nail Yakupov in 2012 (Sarnia Sting, OHL).

“I think it was even better than I expected,” McDavid said. “I didn’t know how it would feel. I wasn’t too nervous; I was just anxious. Just so excited to hear your name called and go through all that.”
