2021 NHL draft: Pick tracker and analysis for every team

1 Mins read

The 2021 NHL draft is here, and we’re tracking all 224 picks over two days and seven rounds, starting with the Buffalo Sabres‘ selection at No. 1 overall. Follow along live Friday and Saturday for each selection. Plus, Greg Wyshynski will take a closer look at how each first-rounder fits with his new team.

This year’s class of prospects comes with little consensus when it comes to rankings and evaluations, thanks to uneven — or nonexistent — seasons for many junior, collegiate and/or international leagues amid the COVID-19 pandemic. But the group is extremely talented, with numerous future impact players at the NHL level.

Following the Sabres in Round 1 are the Seattle Kraken, who just completed their full expansion draft and are now primed to make their first ever draft pick at No. 2 overall. A handful of teams are also set to make multiple first-round picks on Friday.

Here are the 2021 NHL draft picks as they happen, along with instant analysis on every Round 1 selection. Watch the first-round picks roll in live on Friday night on ESPN2, starting at 8 p.m. ET. Rounds 2-7 will continue on Saturday, beginning at 11 a.m. ET (NHL Network).
