NHL Live previews MacKinnon-Jones showdown

Nathan MacKinnon vs, Seth Jones, Part I, is Friday night as the top pick in the 2013 NHL Draft faces off with the No. 4 pick, and NHL Live, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network, will have that game between the Colorado Avalanche and Nashville Predators covered. We'll also have NHL Network analyst Barry Melrose on to give his Mullet of the Week.

Also on Friday, we'll have our first edition of the weekly "College Hockey Report." Boston College star Johnny Gaudreau will be joining us to preview the Eagles' season, which begins next week.

Plus, Daniel Briere of the Montreal Canadiens will be on the show as he prepares to face the Philadelphia Flyers for the first time this season tomorrow night at the Bell Centre. Hard to believe, but Briere was once placed on waivers while making less than $1 million dollars. All 30 teams passed on him before he went on to Buffalo and became a star with the Sabres. Now, he has begun his 15th season in the NHL and first with the Canadiens.

Remember to submit your #AskEJ questions through Twitter via @NHLNetwork or @EJHradek_NHL, and join the conversation on twitter as we ask you to pick the game of the night.
