NHL 2002 Entry Draft Preview

Well, now that the Stanley Cup finals are over, we can begin to talk about the upcoming NHL draft weekend on June 22-23. The Pittsburgh Penguins fans, as the other 28 teams in the league that were not in the finals have been anxiously awaiting the Entry Draft.

There has been much speculation as to just who would be the number one draft pick (that belongs to the Florida Panthers). The top player ranked #1 in the scouting lists is Jay Bouwmeester. He did well this season with the Medicine Hat Tigers in the WHL. Florida is most likely to pick him.
