The 2013 NHL Draft marks the 50th anniversary of the first amateur selection process, which was held June 5, 1963 in Montreal.

Since then, when the six NHL teams each made a first-round pick, the League has grown to 30 teams, and when the 2013 NHL Draft is held June 30 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., 30 more players will be able to call themselves first-round NHL draft picks.
