*Happy draft day, kids! Are you in or near Philly today? Come to our party! Watching hockey things with other hockey people is lots of fun. [BSH]

*If the Flyers intend to use this pick to restock the defensive prospect pool, Victor Soderstrom is a solid choice. [BSH]

*We did our own mock draft at BSH Radio, which was a lot of fun. You can check out picks 13-18 here, and look out for the remaining first round picks today. [BSH]

*And next year’s draft will be in Montreal. You can drive there. Just saying. [ProHockeyTalk]

*It’s time to start acknowledging that Chuck Fletcher has improved this hockey team, and we’ve lost zero meaningful assets in the process. [NBC Sports Philly]

*But speaking of giving up assets... it would appear that the Oilers are looking to move Jesse Puljujarvi. Something to think about if you’re Chaz, I think. [Die By The Blade]

*Some seem to think that Flyers fans should be worried about more moves. [Yahoo Sports]

*There’s a lot left for Chuck to do, though. So moves are probably going to happen. [Inquirer]

*Ahh, Nolan Patrick. Such a frustrating young man. [BSH]

*The Leafs fans are getting weird about this Mitch Marner situation. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, in case you missed it, Kenan Thompson did a great job hosting the NHL Awards and for the first time, made the show actually funny. His monologue was great. [ProHockeyTalk]
