2019 NHL Draft: First Round Open Thread

Draft day is finally here folks. This is the day we’ve been waiting for since the Rangers won the second overall pick just over two months ago. The Rangers will likely be selected Kaapo Kakko with their pick.

The Rangers also had the #20 pick from Winnipeg, but sent that back to the Jets in the Jacob Trouba deal on Monday. Unless the Rangers move someone from their roster, it is unlikely they move back into the first round.

Use this as your open thread for the night. Keep it civil, as per usual. The draft itself starts at 8pm tonight on NBCSN.

    Fearless prediction. The Rangers make a move to acquire a second first round pick. With that pick they draft Dylan Cozens.
