Sadly, hockey season is officially done now, with the Penguins winning the Stanley Cup for the second year in a row.

The NHL, however, is set for a busy rest of June - there’s an expansion draft, some Adidas jersey reveals, the NHL Awards, and the NHL Draft on June 23rd-24th in Chicago.

With the awarding of the Stanley Cup last night, the draft order is set:

The Blues pick twice in the first round - once at 20th overall, and once at 27th overall. The second first round pick is from the Washington Capitals as part of the package for Kevin Shattenkirk.

Who will the Blues pick? We have our ideas - stay tuned for Brian’s SB Nation Mock Draft selections.
