The 2021 NHL Draft is finally here. Similar to last year, it won’t be the normal festivities of players coming up to receive their jersey from an NHL general manager. It will be done virtually in their homes with their families. Nevertheless, 223 talented hockey players will realize the dream of being selected by an NHL franchise.
Unlike previous drafts, there is no clear-cut first-overall pick like a Connor McDavid, Auston Matthews, or Alexis Lafreniere. There are at least three players who could hear their name called right off the bat. They are, in no particular order, Owen Power, Matthew Beniers, or William Eklund. Heck, it could even be Luke Hughes. Beyond that, we have no idea who the Buffalo Sabres will ultimately pick. That’s what makes this draft so much fun, uncertainty and intrigue will be around every corner.
