MONTREAL — And that’s a wrap. The Pittsburgh Penguins shipped one prospect away in the sixth round in exchange for one they liked a little better. In the fifth round, the Penguins drafted an NHL prodginee, while GM Ron Hextall teased a potential trade.
It was a wild week in Montreal for the 2022 NHL Draft.
Hextall told reporters who were there, including us, that he had some “balls in the air” and he would see where they land. You can use the collogial expression as you wish but Hextall does not speak haphazardly.
The Pittsburgh Penguins trade chatter just ticked up. Dan Kingerski has the latest from Montreal, including additional information on the draft picks, who he likes, who the league scouts liked, and the NHL trade whispers.
