Three days ahead of the NHL Draft, TSN's scouting experts took a run at predicting the first round.

TSN scout Craig Button and TSN hockey contributor Pierre McGuire took turns predicting where hockey's top prospects would end up on Friday in the 2012 TSN Mock Draft.

Last year, McGuire surprised many by predicting the Oilers would use their first overall pick on a much-needed defenceman in the form of Swedish standout Adam Larsson.

With the first overall pick once again belonging to the Oilers, will the team address an organizational need on its blue line or take proven talent in the form of consensus number-one pick, Nail Yakupov?

Many Canadian teams will be in the limelight on Draft night, tune in to find out who the Canadiens and Maple Leafs will take with their respective top-five selections.

Will any marquee talent slip in the draft ranks?

In the past, the likes of Zach Parise, Anze Kopitar and Cam Fowler have slipped on the draft board only to reward the faith of the teams that selected them.

Will any of this year's top prospects be available for the likes of the Jets, Flames or Senators with their respective top-15 picks?

The draft board won't fill out until Friday night. If you can't wait until then tune in and get a glimpse of your team's future!
