Tonight at 6 PM Central, the 2022 NHL Draft gets underway. Montreal’s been waiting to host this for the last two years, but those previous drafts were virtual thanks to COVID-19. This year, the excitement is back. The booing of Gary Bettman, the congrats heaped on the Avs, the suspense when a trade is announced, and the disappointment when that trade’s just two teams jockeying for draft position.
There are a few questions in store for the Blues. Who should they draft at 23rd overall? A defenseman? A center? Or should they follow Doug Armstrong’s advice and just go for whoever’s available when the pick falls to them?
