NHL Draft


Recommended Posts

Free passes for next month's NHL draft at Scotiabank Place will be available to the public beginning tomorrow.

The Senators announced yesterday that the passes for general admission seating located in the 200 and 300 levels of Scotiabank Place and can be picked up at the arena box office, all Ottawa-Gatineau area Sports Experts locations, any one of the six Local Heroes Sports Bars and the two Sens Stores (Rideau Centre and Place D'Orleans).


There is a limit of four passes per person.

Scotiabank Place will open its doors for seating to the general public at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, June 20 for the first round of the draft and at 9 a.m. on June 21 for Rounds 2-7. Parking is free.

There will be a number of special events for fans attending the draft. The festivities run from 4-6:30 p.m. on June 20 and resume at 9 a.m. June 21. Fans can test the speed of their shot in one of two hardest-shot cages, shoot the lights out on an interactive net or test their reflexes as a goalie.

I doubt the Russian Filatov will go #2 because there is so much uncertainty with drafting Ruskies. Look at Cherepanov last year.

Nope. Tavares was ineligible for this year's draft despite efforts to bend the rules for him. He's #1 next year.

He has been the consensus #1 for a while, but there was just an article in the hockey news about how Hedman might overtake him. Who knows?

I am surprised that Doughty has dropped to 4th.
