Good evening Leafs fans! Here is your official GDT for the 2016 NHL Draft! We get to kick things off with a celebration then laugh at the other teams.

First off here’s the nifty SBN draft tracker, which will update live natively right here:

Here is how you can watch the draft (from Scott’s post on the front page):

TV: Sportsnet in Canada, NHL Network in the US.
Radio: Get a time machine (but also on TSN 1050).
Internet: Sportsnet App if you have a cable subscription or on Sportsnet Now, which right now, by coincidence I’m sure, has a seven-day free trial.

Here’s some draft reading for everyone, let’s sit back and enjoy the draft.
