*It looks like the NHL is 100% committed to the idea of holding the draft in June, despite having to change all the rules in order to do so. And all of these rule changes are handing Alex Lafreniere to the Detroit Red Wings. [TSN]

*Teams are preparing for the draft as usual, which seems like a good thing since it is definitely happening. [Canadian Press]

*So if we’re drafting, might as well start looking at some potential picks, eh? How about this Russian center, currently playing in the Q? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Or maybe this American kid with a bit of a hockey pedigree? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie did a mailbag and, as usual, some very good information came out of it. [The Athletic]
