The last time Edmonton used the No. 32 overall selection, Mitch Moroz (photo by Mark Williams) was named in 2012. The club also grabbed Chris Hajt in 1996 and Mike Watt in 1994 with the No. 32 selection. Who will be chosen this time? Will Edmonton make the pick?

I found it interesting at the time, and decided to follow it every season for five years (we are now through three seasons) to see how things turn out. Here is this summer's look.
