NHL Draft Order Announced; Kings Pick 51st

nhl.com

The NHL has released the draft order for the 2016 NHL Draft, which will be held in Buffalo on June 24-25, 2016. The Kings do not have a first-round pick, as it was part of last year's trade for Andrej Sekera; instead, the Carolina Hurricanes have that #21 pick. So LA's first pick is their second-rounder, which is #51. Remaining picks will be at slots #112 (4th round), #142 (5th round), and #202 (7th round). The third-round pick was part of January's Lecavalier/Schenn trade, while the sixth-round pick was the price for LA to move up five spots in the third round last year. May all four picks be winners.
