An open thread to discuss for Friday night’s events.

The Chicago Blackhawks will make the 11th overall selection in the first round of the 2021 NHL Draft on Friday night.

It’s technically the No. 12 pick overall with the Arizona Coyotes’ No. 11 pick in the first round being forfeit. Arizona did trade back into the first round earlier in the day on Friday as part of a massive deal with Vancouver.
