Round 1 of the NHL Draft begins tonight and fans are excited to see who the Vegas Golden Knights will pick to grow their roster for the future. With 9 draft picks in the first 5 rounds, the Knights can bring in a lot of talent. We don’t know which players McPhee and McCrimmon are looking at, but they’ve done well in the past two years drafting talent like Cody Glass, Nick Suzuki, Erik Brannstrom, and Nicolas Hague. With a first round draft pick again (no 1st round pick in 2018), you can expect to see another star join the ranks… and hey, maybe it will be a goalie like Spencer Knight (fitting) or Hunter Jones.
Round 1: Friday, June 21st starting at 5pm PT on NBCSN and SportsNet
Rounds 2-7: Saturday, June 22nd starting at 10am PT on NHL Network and SportsNet
Live Stream on ESPN+, NBC Sports App, and most likely from numerous sources on Reddit.
Dave Goucher and Gary Lawless will provide coverage during the draft on Fox Sports Radio 98.9 FM and 1340 AM. Coverage will include interviews with Vegas’ draft selections and experts from around the league.
