Devils take Hischier with NHL draft's top pick

Devils take Hischier with NHL draft's top pick

The draft trade capped one of the biggest days of wheeling and dealing in Bowman's tenure after he in traded away Artemi Panarin and Niklas Hjalmarsson in separate deals that brought back winger Brandon Saad and netted young defenseman Connor Murphy, among others.

Chicago also got goaltender Anton Forsberg and a fifth-round draft pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, but also gave up forward Tyler Motte and the Hawks' sixth round (170 overall) in 2017 in the deal.

The Portland Winterhawks had four players selected in the 2017 NHL Draft.

The draft moved at a quick pace but was lacking the drama of previous affairs thanks to the lack of trades.

Devils select Hischier with first overall draft pick
The Flyers brought Patrick in for a physical recently and were satisfied with the results. [The Devils] wanted him. Nolan Patrick did not become the first-ever Manitoban selected No.1 at the NHL Draft on Friday night.

In their 41 years, the Winterhawks have had 29 first-round selections in the National Hockey League draft and have had 137 players drafted.

Even though the Hawks didn't have a first round pick the last two years, it would be hard for them to do anything of outcome after what transpired earlier in the day. The Hawks actually traded down, swapping picks with the Dallas Stars (No. 29) and gaining a third-round pick (No. 70 in the process).

"I didn't really see that as a hockey place when I went there, but now, with the new team and the fans and season tickets sold out, I think hockey will be unbelievable", Glass said.

Once the laughs died down, the Hawks selected Finnish defenseman Henri Jokiharju.

Glass is coming off a career year in 2016-17 with the Winterhawks, in which he recorded 94 points in 69 games played.

"Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane call my name, and it can't be a better feeling", Jokiharu said.

Jokiharju certainly sold himself when describing his game to the media after he was picked.

"I love hockey", he said.
