We now know the order for the 2022 NHL Draft. With the Stanley Cup Final finishing up on Sunday, we now know who will be picking in what spot through the entire seven rounds.

The draft will feature stars like Shane Wright, Juraj Slafkovsky, Logan Cooley and Simon Nemec expected to go in the top four. Wright is the expected number one pick but Slafkovsky is also expected to be a very valuable player in the NHL for years to come/

The 2022 NHL Draft will be in 10 days in Montreal, with the Montreal Canadiens picking first overall. Let’s go over what the first round looks like.

1. Montreal Canadiens

2. New Jersey Devils

The draft has also seen some big trades made in past years. We could potentially see the Devils trade their second overall pick if they deem their return is worth the price or we could see some different teams make salary cap moves like how the Vegas Golden Knights traded Evgenii Dadonov to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for the contract of Shea Weber.

There are a lot of teams with multiple picks at the upcoming draft in the first round but I think the most interesting players to keep an eye on are going to be the Canadiens with the top pick in front of their home crowd, the Devils in deciding to make a move or hold onto their second overall pick and the Buffalo Sabres, a team with three picks at the draft that could potentially be making some moves to help build their roster for next season.

The draft is almost here. Fans won’t have to wait too long for some more exciting news from the NHL.

Red Wings Wrap-Up: Hronek stays consistent in fourth NHL season

24-year-old defenseman finished with career highs in assists, points and games played in 2021-22

When the Detroit Red Wings signed Filip Hronek to a three-year contract extension on Sept. 3, 2021, he was expected to continue playing an important role on defense.

And Hronek did just that in 2021-22, leading to personal bests in games played (78), assists (33) and points (38).

Detroit relied heavily on Hronek this past season. He finished second on the team in average ice time at 22:02 per game, trailing only Calder Memorial Trophy winner Moritz Seider (23:03).

The 6-foot, 188-pound defenseman also reached several individual NHL milestones in his fourth year in Detroit. In particular, Hronek skated in his 200th NHL game on Jan. 8 at Los Angeles and notched his 100th NHL point seven days later with an assist against the Buffalo Sabres.

The 24-year-old also recorded five multi-assist games and six multi-point outings in 2021-22, proving to be a reliable source for offense as a defenseman.

Hronek, Detroit’s 53rd overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, spent just one-plus season with the Red Wings’ AHL-affiliate Grand Rapids Griffins before earning a spot on Detroit’s 2018-19 opening night roster. He showed promise in his first full NHL campaign, tallying 23 points in just 46 games.

The following season, the Czech native again made the Red Wings’ roster out of training camp and skated in 65 of Detroit’s 71 games while leading the club in average ice time (23:54).

Hronek embraced top-two blueliner responsibilities in the 2019-20 season by pacing Red Wings defensemen in points (26), assists (24), power-play points (11) and average ice time (23:23).

With the value that the 24-year-old has proven in his young career, combined with the emergence of Seider, the Red Wings are confident their defense can continue taking steps forward in the 2022-23 campaign.

Red Wings Wrap-Up: Smith brings energy, physicality in third NHL season
23-year-old forward set career highs in goals, points and games played in 2021-22

Playing a physical brand of hockey was a focal point for the Detroit Red Wings throughout the 2021-22 season.

2022 NHL Draft first-round selection order set

To be held July 7 in Montreal, determined by conclusion of Stanley Cup Final

The order for the first round of the 2022 Upper Deck NHL Draft has been set with the completion of the Stanley Cup Final.

The first 16 selections were determined at the NHL Draft Lottery, which was held May 10. The Montreal Canadiens won the lottery and have the No. 1 pick. The New Jersey Devils won the No. 2 selection.

The 2022 draft will be held at Bell Centre in Montreal. The first round is July 7 (7 p.m. ET; ESPN, ESPN+, SN, TVAS) and rounds 2-7 are July 8 (11 a.m. ET; NHLN, ESPN+, SN, TVAS).

The 12 teams that lost in the first two rounds of the Stanley Cup Playoffs have picks 17-28. Teams that did not win their division were placed in inverse order of regular-season standings points, followed by the three division winners who lost in inverse order of regular-season points.

The Edmonton Oilers, who lost in the Western Conference Final, have the No. 29 pick. The Winnipeg Jets have the No. 30 pick, which they acquired from the New York Rangers in a trade for forward Andrew Copp on March 21.

The Tampa Bay Lightning, which lost in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final on Sunday, will pick No. 31.

The No. 32 selection goes to the Stanley Cup champion, but the Colorado Avalanche traded that pick to the Arizona Coyotes for goalie Darcy Kuemper on July 28.

The Coyotes and Buffalo Sabres each have three first-round picks, and the Canadiens, Jets, Columbus Blue Jackets and Anaheim Ducks each have two.

In addition to Colorado’s pick, Arizona has the No. 3 selection, and No. 27 pick, which it acquired from the Canadiens in a trade for forward Christian Dvorak on Sept. 4. The pick initially belonged to the Carolina Hurricanes but went to the Canadiens as compensation for signing restricted free agent forward Jesperi Kotkaniemi.
