TLN’s coverage of first round draft targets continued on this week with five more player profiles, along with a whole bunch of signings, trade rumours, free agent chatter and general jackassery.
Missed some of it? Don’t sweat it. It’s time for This Week In #Content.
It’s possible that Kessel is traded before the Draft and that’s in just a few weeks and oh my God, is this the end of the Phil Kessel era?
