SB Nation FANPOST Mock Draft: Who should the Predators select at #17?

Hello! I'm coming over from Die By The Blade, the Buffalo Sabres SB Nation site, to start a SB Nation Mock Draft for the first round among the 30 NHL Teams that are drafting in the first round. The Poll will remain open until 8am EST Wednesday, June 15th. The link to the entire Mock Draft in case you're interested is available on Die By the Blade. Please feel free to leave comments on why you chose that player, and I'll add a few of them into the actual mock draft. Also, since we are getting out of the second tier of prospects I may exclude a prospect from the poll. If you'd like to see someone added please put that in the comments. So far the draft has looked like:

1) Toronto: Auston Matthews

2) Winnipeg: Patrik Laine

3) Columbus: Jesse Puljujarvi

4) Edmonton: Matthew Tkachuk

5) Vancouver: Pierre-Luc Dubois

6) Calgary: Alexander Nylander

7) Arizona: Olli Juolevi

8.) Buffalo: Jakob Chychurn

9.) Montreal: Logan Brown

10.) Colorado: Mikhail Sergachev

11.) New Jersey: Clayton Keller

12.) Ottawa: Tyson Jost

13.) Carolina: Michael McLeod

14.) Boston: Alex DeBrincat

15.) Minnesota: Kieffer Bellows

16.) Detroit: Jake Bean
