NHL Draft Day 2 Open Thread and Results
The Jackets have six picks on day two of the draft, one each in rounds three through seven, with an extra sixth rounder.
Who will the Jackets pick up? I can see them adding a goaltender to re-stock the cupboard, and there may be/should be a focus on centers.
There’s a good chance we’ll see some trade action as well - do the Avs move Duchene? Will there be another trade out of left field?
Pale Dragon will cover each draft choice.
