2012 NHL Draft

The 2012 NHL draft took place over the weekend at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA.

What do you think the biggest story line was from this year’s 2012 draft?


A) The Edmonton Oilers draft forward Nail Yakupov with their third consecutive 1st overall pick.

B) The Pittsburgh Penguins trade center Jordan Staal to the Carolina Hurricanes (whose Captain is Eric Staal, Jordan’s older brother) in exchange for center Brandon Sutter, defenseman Brian Dumoulin and the 8th overall pick in the 2012 draft, defenseman Derrick Pouliot. Extra note - Jordan Staal was in the process of getting married when he was trade to the ‘Canes.
