Over the last several days, we've prepared you as best as possible for the 2010 USHL Futures Draft. On Tuesday at 11 AM Eastern, we'll put that preparation to good use as SB Nation, with help from the United States Hockey League and the USHL Prospects Blog, bring you live coverage of the event.
Join us for Rink Side Radio, our live weekly radio program. Typically we talk NHL hockey on Monday nights from 9 to 10 PM ET, but this week, it's wall-to-wall live coverage of the USHL Futures Draft from 11 AM to 1 PM ET on Tuesday. You can stream the show right here at SBNation.com by using the player at the bottom of this page.
Hosts Joe Fortunato and Travis Hughes will be joined by guest analyst Justin Schreiber of the USHL Prospects Blog, as well as Chris Dilks from SBN's Western College Hockey Blog. The panel will also welcome several fantastic guests throughout the program, including USHL Commissioner Skip Prince and the top overall selection in the Futures Draft.
You can see the complete draft order at USHLDraft.com, where you can also follow along live with each pick. The order snakes through six rounds. Expansion clubs Dubuque and Muskegon hold the top two picks, respectively. 14 clubs in total will draft on Tuesday morning, with the USA Hockey National Team Development Program sitting out the proceedings. The USA NTDP competes in the USHL but does not take part in its drafts.
88 players born in the year 1994 will find potential homes on Tuesday. For a look at some of them and the journey they may take beyond draft day, catch up with SBN's coverage so far:
