All things considered, Friday night's Round 1 of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft was rather uneventful. There were a handful of small trades, but for the most part things went as expected, with Aaron Ekblad going first overall to the Florida Panthers, and a majority of the players selected ranked around where they were taken. There were a few items of note, like the Edmonton Oilers making Leon Draisaitl the highest-ever selected German-born player at No. 3, and only five defensemen coming off the board. Here's a full rundown of all the picks made Friday night in Philadelphia:

  1. Florida Panthers: Aaron Ekblad (D, Barrie)
