NHL Draft 2013: Live Results, Trades, Analysis and Reaction

Franklin Steele@FranklinSteeleAnalyst IIJune 30, 2013

The 2013 NHL draft is ongoing, and Nathan MacKinnon is the first overall selection for the Colorado Avalanche. The most surprising news of the day will likely be the slide of Seth Jones, who fell all the way to the Nashville Predators at fourth overall.

Aleksander Barkov went to the Florida Panthers at No. 2 and Jonathan Drouin was selected at No. 3, forcing Jones down to the Preds at four.

For the second straight year the hometown team stole the show though. Before we could make it out of the top-10, it was announced that the New Jersey Devils had traded their ninth overall selection to the Vancouver Canucks for goaltender Cory Schneider.

David Bolland was also traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the Nino Niederreiter saga finally came to a close as the New York Islanders traded him to the New York Islanders for Cal Clutterbuck.
