Nashville Predators select Vladislav Kamenev, Jack Dougherty in second round.

Mitchell Leff

Nashville takes a forward and a defenseman to start off the day.

The Nashville Predators had two picks to make in the second round, and they chose Russian Vladislav Kamenev at 42nd overall and Jack Dougherty at 51st overall.

Originally holding the 42nd and 46th, the Predators traded the latter (originally acquired from Detroit) to San Jose for the 51st overall and a 4th round pick in 2015.

The scouting report on Kamenev from Hockey's Future and stats from Elite Prospects:

Kamenev is a good-skating center with an excellent set of hands, and is a very interesting prospect thanks to his size, use of the body, and puck skills. The native of Orsk, Russia can be very effective along the boards as he can use his size to his advantage and can also be very useful in front of the crease. He has a good shot, but is not a goal-scorer, as he, as many other Russians, plays more of a pass-first type of game. He also seems to have a good work ethic and hasn’t had many problems with penalties in his career.

Jack Dougherty is a defenseman out of Minnesota. He is slated to attend the University of Wisconsin this year, which bodes well for his development. Also, he'll have something to talk to Craig Smith about.

Scouting report from Hockey's Future and stats from Elite Prospects:

Dougherty has made great strides the past couple of seasons — steadily progressing from a defensive defenseman to a confident puck handler and someone with a great ability to read the play. Has the size and skating ability that attracts scouts and has not let his offensive play diminish his defensive game.
