It’s the day we’ve all been waiting for. The 1st round of the 2018 NHL Draft will kick off at 7:30pm ET tonight, and we’ll leave this post open to have talk and react to each pick. Let’s have fun.

The Red Wings pick 6th and 30th overall tonight, then have a long list of picks for round 2-7 tomorrow. Will they stand pat, or will moves be made? We’ll have articles going all night with analysis on each move/pick the Red Wings make. Kyle will go live on Facebook tonight to hold a discussion about the night that was.
