2018 Draft Recap, The Old College Try
June 23, 2018Posted by on
As with years prior, I use this piece as a recap of the recap of the NHL Draft and the haul that the Pittsburgh Penguins drafted. Here goes.
After no action at all in the first round Friday, all of the picks were made on Saturday. They were…
Pittsburgh then traded up to draft…
Then they waited to 129 and took…
And then in the sixth round…
They traded away their final pick to the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for theirs in 2019.
AHL Big Board will be out this week on the blog. I am aiming for a midweek debut because all I need are blurbs on any restricted free agents not qualified by Monday. Everything else is done but for ranking, but that is seamless because I have a top 30 and really just need 60 more which shouldn’t be that hard. I learned how to have a spreadsheet alphabetize for me two years ago so that’s a breeze.
The plan is to drop a blog post in here advising when the Big Board will be out to give ample time and build up the anticipation.
