2019 NHL draft: Full first round order and picks for all 31 teams

In a city more known for it’s rainy weather, it’s about to get drafty up in Vancouver.

The 2019 NHL Draft kicks off with the first round on Friday, June 21, and it portends to be a weekend with some franchise-changing picks made and maybe even a few big-name trades going down.

The New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers figure to make Jack Hughes and Kaapo Kakko the first two picks made, but who goes after that will be the subject of debate right up until the No. 3 pick is made. There will be plenty of surprises and prospects wearing freshly pressed jerseys milling around Rogers Arena by the end of the weekend.

Here’s a look at the 2019 NHL Draft and the full first-round order of picks heading into Friday evening:
