Preds Select Two in Second Round


Vladislav Kamanev

Birthplace: Orsk, RUS
Date of Birth: August 12, 1996
Current Team: MAGNITOGORSK 2 (Russia Jr.)
Position: Left Wing
Height: 6-2
Weight: 203 pounds

Nashville used its second selection in the 2014 Entry Draft (42nd overall) to select two-way versatile forward Vladislav Kamanev. The Orsk, Russia, native displays great defensive awareness and is a strong physical presence. Kamenev split the 2013-14 season between Magnitogorsk in Russia’s junior league - scoring four goals and 10 points in 15 games - and Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the Kontinental Hockey League. Playing under former NHL coach Mike Keenan, Kamenev scored one goal in 16 games with the eventual KHL champions. He finished in the top five in tournament scoring at the 2013 World Junior A Challenge, posting seven points (1g-6a) in five games as Russia captured the silver medal. As captain of Team Russia at the 2014 Under-18 World Championship, Kamenev shared the team-lead with seven points (2g-5a) in five games. He lists Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings and Nicklas Backstrom of the Washington Capitals as his favorite NHL players.

Scout’s Comments:
“He’s creative and physical. He handles the puck very well and makes several great passes through traffic." - NHL Central Scouting’s Chris Edwards

Originally slated to make an additional second round pick at No. 46, the Preds traded the 46th overall pick to the San Jose Sharks for the 51st pick this year and the Sharks’ fourth round pick in 2015.


Jack Dougherty

Birthplace: Cottage Grove, Minnesota
Date of Birth: May 25, 1996
Current Team: US National Team Development Program (USHL)
Position: Defense
Height: 6-1
Weight: 186 pounds

With their second pick in the second round (51st overall) the Predators drafted American-born defenseman Jack Dougherty. The Cottage Grove, Minnesota, native played with the Under-18 US National Team Development Program in 2013-14 scoring six goals and adding 16 assists in 55 games. He also helped the United States win gold at the Under-18 World Junior Championships this past year scoring two goals and two assists in seven games. Dougherty is a big body- defenseman with a strong all-around game and skating ability. Dougherty is slated to attend the University of Wisconsin in September 2014 and looks to be the next in a long line of impact defenders for the Badgers.

Scout’s Comments:
"Even as a high school player, he was a smart two-way player and proved to be very responsible. He's also tough and can play the powerplay and work the point well.” – NHL Central Scouting’s Greg Rajanen
