The 2016 NHL Draft is tonight, obviously. Coverage begins with a live stream on NHL.com at 4:00 Central Time; the draft itself starts at 6:00 Central.
NBCSN will be broadcasting the draft, and there will be a livestream at NBCSN's Live Extra site for those of you not at home to watch.
If you're not able to stream, not at home, and don't feel like trying to play follow along on Twitter, SB Nation has a great draft tracker set up. Make sure that you bookmark it.
Will there be drama? Trades? Will Edmonton actually, seriously trade the fourth overall pick and an opportunity to draft Li'l Walt? Will the Blues make any moves?
What do I look like, a magic eight ball?
Regardless of the predictions, tonight's a huge night for St. Louis hockey. As our friend Joe Yeardon has pointed out, four St. Louis prospects will probably go in the first round: Matthew Tkachuk, Logan Brown, Clayton Keller Luke Kunin are all ranked by Central Scouting in the top 15 of North American skaters eligible for the draft.
A hometown pick'd be swell for the Blues, but no matter how you slice it, St. Louis is making a name for itself tonight.
Here's the first round draft order for tonight:
- New Jersey
- NY Islanders
- NY Rangers → Arizona
- Los Angeles → Carolina
- Chicago → Winnipeg
- Tampa Bay
- St. Louis
- San Jose → Boston
- Pittsburgh → Toronto → Anaheim
