The official draft order, as of Friday morning has been released. Noticeably, a lot of first-round picks have exchanged hands this year, as well as second- and third-round picks.

Here’s a handy guide, broken down round by round, of who is picking when, to refer back to over the weekend.

Round One

Round One

2 Carolina
3 Montreal
4 Ottawa optional to Colorado
5 Arizona
6 Detroit

As mentioned, a lot of first-round picks changed hands this year, but most of them fall in the second half of the first-round — the cost of acquiring players for a playoff push. As for the Ottawa pick, as of the Matt Duchene trade in November, the Senators have optioned to retain their pick and send the Avalanche their first-round pick in the 2019 NHL Draft instead.
