The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup last night in dramatic fashion, scoring two goals in 17 seconds late in the third to go from looking like a game 7 was imminent to a Stanley Cup win. Congrats to the Blackhawks, but now it’s time to look ahead to the 2013 NHL Entry Draft that will be taking place in New Jersey on Sunday June 30th.
Patrick Roy and Joe Sakic have expressed through the media their interest in taking Nathan MacKinnon with their first overall pick, which has kind of taken some of the interest away from the presumed first overall battle between MacKinnon, Seth Jones and Jonathan Drouin. That said online sportsbook Bodog.ca was still able to create some interesting prop bets for those interested in betting on the NHL Entry Draft.
