Draft Round #1
7:00 p.m. ET in Nashville
Watch on: ESPN, SN, TVAS, NHLN

The Toronto Maple Leafs will be selecting 28th tonight, using the Boston Bruins first round pick which they got from the Washington Capitals in exchange for Rasmus Sandin. Ya, that's complicated.

At a conservative estimate of five minutes per selection, and assuming they start this exactly at 7:00 p.m., which they won't, this puts the Leafs selection to be somewhere around 10:15 p.m., so don't worry about being late to this show.

And all that assumes they don't wind up trading the pick and therefore doing nothing until the remainder six draft rounds which will run all day tomorrow starting at 11:00 a.m.


Here's our recent draft coverage.
