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

It's draft weekend for the NHL and the Minnesota Wild have a good chance to add some top talent with their seventh overall selection. In what's being considered one of the deepest drafts in a while, there will be all sorts of players available to Minnesota and there's no real consensus on who they're most likely to pick with needs all over the ice.

The Edmonton Oilers will kick things off with the first overall selection, a familiar spot for Edmonton in recent years, and are widely expected to pick up another dynamic offensive player. Right winger Nail Yakupov out of the Sarnia Sting in the OHL is considered the best player in the draft by a lot of people and he's almost assuredly going first overall, either to Edmonton or an enterprising team that feels like trading up.

Here's the details on the draft, kicking off Friday evening:

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)
