The 2019 NHL Draft is sure to be one for the ages, with an obvious two-headed monster in the top two selections in Jack Hughes and Kaapo Kakko. They're going to the New Jersey Devils and the New York Rangers respectively, unless an extreme circumstance arises.. After that, it's anyone's guess as to who will follow 'em.
How to Live Stream Day 1 of the NHL Draft
The 2019 NHL Draft is set to begin on Friday from Vancouver, and will begin at 8:00 pm ET, when the Devils will go on the clock. The NHL Draft will be nationally televised on NBCSN and SportsNet, and streams can be found on Reddit's NHL streams subreddit.
The top two prospects are head and shoulders above the rest, so no matter the order they go in, the Devils and Rangers are going to get a very good young player. Hughes has been the consensus No. 1 pick in this draft class for the past three years, and he still remains the projected first overall selection.
The projected second overall pick played in the professional hockey league in Finland as an 18-year-old last year, and broke the under-18 goal record for the country. Kakko elevated his draft stock tremendously over the past year, and put himself on an even playing field as Hughes with his performance in the World Championships, where he led an NHL-less forward group for Finland to a gold medal in the tournament.
