2022 NHL Draft: Tracking every first-round pick originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

The best young hockey players in the world are ready to take the big stage.

The 2022 NHL Draft will take place over two days, starting Thursday with the first round and continuing Friday with rounds 2-7. The Montreal Canadiens had the best selection overall and were able to qualify at their local arena, the Bell Center.

After Montreal, the New Jersey Devils, Arizona Coyotes, Seattle Kraken and Philadelphia Flyers complete the top five. A total of 23 teams entered the draft with a first-round pick, but organizations can still make deals to acquire a first-rounder in 2022. Just look at the Chicago Blackhawks, who acquired the seventh overall pick in part of a trade comeback after sending Alex DeBrincat to the Ottawa Senators on Thursday afternoon.
