Put it in the books. The 2014 NHL Entry Draft is over and the Panthers did what will hopefully turn out in retrospect to have done the sensible thing, holding on to the first overall pick and selecting the consensus best player, defenseman Aaron Ekblad. The Cats stayed fairly quiet the rest of the draft, making one trade with the Islanders to pick up a third-round pick, and not going off the board until late.
Here are the Panthers' picks, with links to our coverage of each:
Trade: Third-round pick in 2015 for pick 65.
