NHL Entry Draft 2012: Start Time, TV Schedule, Results And More

The 2012 NHL Entry Draft will highlight the league's top picks by airing the first round of the draft from the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh on Friday night. Rounds two through seven will then be completed with a little less fanfare throughout the day on Saturday.

The Edmonton Oilers have the top pick in the draft, which is headlined by dynamic right winger Nail Yakupov from the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Hockey League. The Oilers haven't ruled out a last minute trade, but it would have to be a significant offer with such a consensus top pick in Yakupov on the table.

Here are the key details about the draft:

Date: Friday, June 22 (first round) and Saturday, June 23 (second through seventh rounds)

Where: Consol Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA

Time: Friday - 7:00 p.m. ET, Saturday - 10:00 a.m. ET

TV: Friday - NBC Sports Network, TSN (Canada), Saturday - NHL Network

Radio: NHL Home Ice SiriusXM: Ch. 92 (Sirius 207)

NHL.com will also have a draft tracker to keep tabs on the draft as it unfolds. A complete draft listing for all teams can be found here.
