NHL DRAFT BLOG - HELLO CHICAGO staff have landed in the Windy City for the NHL Draft

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson /

Hello Chicago!

The Flames digital team have landed in the Windy City and have already met with Brad Treliving to discuss this week's events.

From tonight's NHL Awards ceremony and the Expansion Draft to this weekend's NHL Draft, we had plenty to talk to Tre about and will have comments from him throughout the next four days.

Earlier today, Nolan Patrick, Casey Mittelstadt and Gabriel Vilardi were introduced at this afternoon's Chicago Cubs game. All three are expected to be top-10 picks in this year's draft and will be featured in the majority of pre-draft events happening around the city. 

In addition to those of us in Chicago, we have a Flames TV team in Las Vegas for the NHL Awards and Expansion Draft! Ryan Leslie will have coverage from both events later this evening.
