The draft begins at 7:00 PM EST on TSN, and the Montreal Canadiens will be selecting 3rd overall, unless something crazy happens. With the 3rd overall pick, the Habs should be able to pick one of the highly touted Russian players, but who knows what Timmins has up his sleeve.

The crew at EOTP thought it would be cool to contrast the actual draft results (updated live) with SB Nation's mock draft.

Trades will also be updated live as they occur.


The Anaheim Ducks trade Lubomir Visnovsky to the New York Islanders for a 2013 2nd round pick.

The Dallas Stars trade Mike Ribeiro to the Washington Capitals for Cody Eakin and a 2012 2nd round pick.

The Pittsburgh Penguins trade Jordan Staal to the Carolina Hurricanes for Brandon Sutter, a 2012 1st round pick (8th overall), Brian Dumoulin.

The Calgary Flames trade their 1st round pick, 14th overall to the Buffalo Sabres for a 2012 1st round pick [21st overall] and a 2012 2nd round pick [42nd overall]
