The NHL Draft for 2015 begins tonight when round one commences at 6 PM CST tonight.
It looks to be an entertaining affair, as rumors abound that the Arizona Coyotes could move the number three overall pick and teams like the New York Islanders and Chicago Blackhawks try to find their ways back into the first round.
The Dallas Stars could potentially make some waves prior to the draft if they use their picks to acquire a backup goaltender -- Eddie Lack? Cam Talbot? Robin Lehner? Oh the possibilities! The Stars should also be looking for help on the blueline and with the sneaky, under-the-radar-until-basically-they-happen moves general manager Jim Nill makes we're in for one entertaining offseason.
