It's won't be nearly as celebrated as Thursday Night's NBA Draft was, and it's not quite as mundane as the MLB's 40-round marathon that took place a few weeks ago. But it's no less important as the NHL will welcome a new class of players in Friday night's draft.
Aside from the top two picks, there are not many household names in the field, and mock drafts have the Flyers going every which way with their selection in the middle of the first round.
The Flyers have been building toward this for a few weeks. And now it's here.
Philly will pick 11th tonight, sometime after 8 p.m. ET as the draft kicks off its first round in prime time.
Rounds 2-through-7 will continue Saturday, starting at 1 p.m.
If you don't have the time to watch yet another draft slog through, don't have a subscription of NHL Network, or have something more interesting to do Friday night, there is no reason to fear. We'll have the entire thing covered. Below is our live chat/open thread. Follow it throughout the night to see all the expert analysis, breaking news and budding rumors.
And hopefully Shayne Gostisbehere will still be a Flyer when the team introduces it's newest star.
