Captains will pick their teams tonight during the Frozen Fantasy Draft at the Hilton Toronto. Captains will take turns drafting their first five players. The names of the remaining players will be printed on mini-sticks, which the captains will then pick at random to fill out their rosters. As winner of the captain’s vote with 2088 votes, Carlee Campbell will have first pick. Our own Species will live-tweet the event at PPPLeafs.

UPDATE: The Frozen Fantasy Draft will be broadcast live on FacebookLive at 8:00 pm EST
