Welcome to Day 2 of the Draft. Starting at 10am Eastern (7am PDT) on NHL Network, all the teams will go through rounds 2 to 7 and select the remaining 180 young lads for this year. Yesterday, as we all saw, the Canucks took Brendan Gaunce 26th overall, and that is all they did. Other teams were more active, with the Penguins making the show by trading Jordan Staal to the Hurricanes. Will there be more trades today? And who will the Canucks group pick?
