NHL Network Radio Previews the 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Draft

The 2018 National Hockey League Entry Draft begins this Friday, in Dallas, Texas. The future of the NHL will be on display, as the stars of tomorrow don a suit, and climb the stairs to their destiny.

Most people can guess who’ll be first overall (there are exceptions to that rule…remember Taylor or Tyler?), but after that, it all depends on what a team believes they need to address.

Shane Malloy knows his hockey. The host of Hockey Prospects Radio on SiriusXM NHL Network Radio, Malloy is a noted draft expert, and has compiled his Top 85 prospects for the 2018 draft.

You can follow along at home, and see how many Shane gets correct. Steve Kouleas and Scott Laughlin will be on site to cover all the picks, and potential trades, beginning at 3 pm Eastern, 12 noon Pacific.
