NHL Draft 2016: Live Tracker

The 2016 NHL Draft is finally here, and it’s expected to not only be a deep draft, but an exciting one as well. With so much action expected, it’s only right that we provide you with a single place to keep updated on all of the picks that take place on Friday night.

Everyone knows who the first pick is likely to be — Auston Matthews to Toronto – but it won’t be official until the NHL Draft actually gets under way at 7pm EST from the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York. The big questions, however, are what will happen, if anything, with Arizona’s third overall pick and beyond?
