Happy Draft Day, friends! Again we meet to welcome the Ducks of the future. We'll be here all day updating the site with all Ducks goings-on from New Jersey. For super-comprehensive pre-draft coverage, head over to the team site and then come back to the cool kids here.
As of 9:30am this morning, the Ducks have five picks. The team might pick at 26th; however, this is said to be one of the deepest drafts since the 2003 (arguably the best draft in NHL history), who had the likes of Corey Perry (#28), Ryan Getzlaf (#19), Zach Parise (#17), Ryan Suter (#7), Dion Phaneuf (#9), Jeff Carter (#11), Mike Richards (#24), Eric Staal (#2), and on and on.
NBCSN will broadcast the draft from 12:00pm PT to 5:00pm PT and then shift to NHL Network from 5:01pm PT to whenever the draft is done. Unlike prior years, the draft will be wrapped up in one day instead of two. Good news, at least I think it's good news, NBCSN and NHL-N US will be using TSN's feed, instead of doing one of their own.
[Ed. Note: As the Ducklings are picked, we're writing a brief dossier for yous guys. Should be up in a bit - JN]
