It's that time of year! Hope springs eternal, and the hockey knowledge-brokers are getting ready to introduce a whole new class of hockey prospects to the National Hockey League-watching world.
First up is from The Hockey Writers. Rick Gethin is organizing quite the event to cover the entire first round. Sadly, I'll be in the second hour of class and won't be able to witness the action. Hope you make the show into a podcast, Rick!
Rumor has it that Eric Smith at HockeyBuzz will be doing something, too. And, of course, the Columbus Blue Jackets themselves set the bar with last year's fun, family-friendly draft party. Nothing has been announced thus far. Will they do another?
Has anyone heard anything else about draft night activities?
