While the 2020 NHL Entry Draft — originally planned for this past weekend in Montreal — is postponed until an unknown date, the process of selecting the league’s future is always on our minds at New England Hockey Journal.
Over the next two weeks, we will take a look back at the New England players selected since the 2010 draft. We’ll analyze what went right, what went wrong, and who the overachievers were.
