It's finally draught day! The first day of the 2022 NHL Draft will take place tonight in Montreal, with 32 players hearing their names called by NHL teams.
The draught will be held in person for the first time since 2019, with athletes in attendance to get their cap and jersey as their hockey dreams come true.
Shane Wright of the OHL's Kingston Frontenacs has long been considered a certainty for the first overall selection.
However, in recent weeks, it has become less and less likely that he will be selected first overall by the Canadiens.
Juraj Slafkovsky, a Slovakian winger, has joined the team and might serve as a spoiler for Wright.
Top American talents Logan Cooley and Cutter Gauthier, Canadian Matt Savoie, and Europeans Simon Nemec, David Jiricek, and Joakim Kemell are among the top-10 players to watch.
