The 2014 NHL Draft is in Philadelphia on June 27 and 28.

Full coverage and updates from the 1st round of the NHL Draft

The 2014 NHL Draft will be held in Philadelphia on Friday, June 27 and Saturday, June 28. Round 1 goes off at 7 p.m. ET on the 27th from the Wells Fargo Center, home of the Philadelphia Flyers. Rounds 2 through 7 will take place the following day, the 28th, beginning at 10 a.m. ET.

NBC Sports Network will have Friday's coverage of the event in the United States, while TSN will have coverage in Canada. TSN keeps their coverage going on Saturday, but NHL Network picks up Saturday's portion in the USA. NBC Sports Live Extra will live stream the 2014 NHL Draft in the United States.

Aaron Ekblad of the OHL's Barrie Colts is expected to go No. 1 overall. The big defenseman is by all accounts NHL ready, and other teams from around the league are definitely interested in acquiring the pick from the Florida Panthers in order to select Ekblad. A group of forwards will likely round out the top five: Leon Draisaitl, Sam Bennett, Sam Reinhart and Michael Dal Colle.

Florida, Buffalo, Edmonton, Calgary and the New York Islanders hold the top five picks, barring any trade movement. The host Philadelphia Flyers hold the 17th overall pick. It's the first time the city has hosted the Draft.
