7:09 PM ET: The Sphere is a cool venue, but putting all of the players up in tiles is crazy.
7:14 PM ET: Sharks take Celibrini. Shocker. Good news is that the NHL has successfully achieved the second-coolest Draft event in all of North American pro sports! (also, sick beard on Joe Thornton)
7:24 PM ET: Blackhawks take Artyom Levshunov out of MSU. Expected, but sad. I wanted to root for the guy! 😉
7:33 PM ET: There goes Sennecke at 3rd overall. Would have loved him at 15.
7:44 PM ET: Celine Dion is on stage.
7:47 PM ET: Well, I didn’t have Celine Deion saying Ivan Demidov’s name on national TV on my 2024 bingo card.
7:53 PM ET: Tij Iginla is a Utah…??? Is that their mascot?
8:07 PM ET: Berkly Catton was another player I would have liked at 15. Still really quiet in terms of trade activity. Kinda strange!
8:18 PM ET: Anton Silayev is a big dude.
8:23 PM ET: San Jose cashes in on the 11th pick, which it had just acquired. Some interesting names starting to trickle down…
8:31 PM ET: TRADE HORN! Philly trades pick 12 to Minnesota for pick 13 and a 3rd rd pick in 2025. Lots of build up for… that. Minnesota takes Buium, bummer he couldn’t slide to 15.
8:56 PM ET: Nicklas Lidstrom makes the pick, and of course it’s a Swede! Wings take Michael Brandsegg-Nygard with pick 15! Here are some quick facts about the newest Red Wing.
9:35 PM ET: The dream of hearing Yzerman draft Eiserman is officially dead.
9:48 PM ET: Anaheim gets pick 23 from Toronto for picks 31 and 58.
10:10 PM ET: Barring any big trades, signing off for the night. Thanks for following along with us!
